Im not sure but probly wouldnt be very accurate it would be better do just buy a whole guitar tuner unit.

they are extremely common on lower end amps and modeling amps, they do a fine job but if you ever get serious your gonna want a strobe tuner anyway.

Some amps have it, just like a rackmount tuner.

Don't just get an amp purely because it's got a tuner on it....

Korg CA-30 kicks ass. If I were you, I'd get an A/B switch to switch between your amp and tuner, for quick tuning when you need it.

Tuners built into amps have a tendency to suck. Some expensive amps have tuner outputs in the back, for connection with rack tuners.

yeah i had a crate fxt 120 and it had a built in tuner. the amp sucked, but the tuner worked fine
#14
Are you really that lazy that you can't carry around a tuner with you, like you could friggin run the line out of the amp, plug into the tuner, and then duct tape it to the amp, if your afraid of forgetting it.

On a serious note, I haven't seen many amps with a tuner built in, and I think the main reason is just because it's not practicle.
#15
^its very practical, it means you dont have to hook up another tuner. Most of hte built in tuners come on practice amps. For live and studio, use a rackmount tuner, or something a little more trusted and backed up by years of experience in tuner making (for lack of better terms)

issue with attaching just any tuner to your amp is that there is no backlight...anyway, i believe the question was wether they were made or not, not if they were any good,
