If anything... chromatic tuners are usually more accurate and of a higher quality.

And yes, you can use it to tune a guitar.

In addition to getting a tuner, I suggest learning to tune by ear. It's an amazingly useful skill to have. Definitly get the tuner if you need it, but pay close attention to what in tune sounds like, and pratice putting your guitar in tune by ear. Also consider learning harmonic tuning, it's more accurate.

Here is an excelent article for you.

Threadstarter, your tuner is actually nicer then the other Korg one you posted. The real difference is that well the Korg Guitar tuner can only hit a few different notes, your Chromatic one can hit EVERY note in western music.

As long as you are tuning your guitar to standard E a d g b e tuning (low string to high) you are doing just fine.

Yeah, the chromatic one is nicer than the GA-30. Just make sure you have the frequency set to pick up at 440 hz. That's the frequency for guitar. Do that, and you should have no problems.
