SO my guitar tuner is a Fender Automatic. It's blue, sparkly and I've had it for a few years. I recently started playing with other musicians and recording and stuff. According to my tuner, I'm in tune, but the other musicians are always telling me I'm out of tune.
Is this a problem with my tuner? How can I fix it?
\EDIT: ITs this one http://www.fender.com/products//search.php?partno=0239988302

Change the batteries in the tuner?

Or the "other musicians" are wrong.
Wait.

Check if your tuner is set to 440 Hz (the frequency of an open A string)
If that's the case, it's probably your intonation that's messed up. Either look up how to fix it on these forums/google or take it to a tech

I don't know the tuner but maybe u have some flats turned on?? And if you're bandmembers are complaining, why not try one of their tuners?

Wow only one person mentioned the obvious problem; intonation. From what you are describing it is 99.9% likely to be an intonation issue. Has the guitar been professionally set-up since you bought it? I'm guessing no. Go into the 'Electric Guitar' forum and post in the 'Ultimate Guitar Set-Up' thread. Jenny will help you.

Read the OP first thought, if you follow those instructions that should be enough. If you have trouble post and ask Jenny.
