Does the Li'l Izzy function the same as the Freeloader (- the tone control)? The FreeLoader has variable input impedance – not a tone control as such. The Li'l Izzy has a fixed – quite hig ...

I always let the string, and meter, settle at the sustained note, and check/recheck for open and for 12th fret harmonics. This means I pretty much ignore the attack-pitch while tuning up.
