Remember that model? One steel maker (Jackson? I'm half-remembering that) mounted the display strip on the deck or the neck, the rest of the unit being installed underneath the guitar, out of sight. NOT a clip-on.

Does anyone remember who made that tuner and does anyone know why they seem to have disappeared from the market? Was there a problem with them?

I'd love to find one, just to mess around with an idea.

I remember that one.
No. It was a skinny linear multi-LED strip -- as if the display module were removed from a generic multi-LED array. I seem to recall it being embedded into the side of the neck but I may be misremembering that.

Yeah, I know about that one but can't think of the maker. It's like a strip?

Dawn Jackson got right back to me to answer my inquiry to Jackson Steel Guitars. Yes, they did use a tuner ".......on some of the early model Shot Jackson Commemorative models. They weren’t anything special...." she said.
No, it was not a detachable strip as I thought I was remembering it -- just a Sabine tuner mounted underneath the guitar.

So either I am totally making up the idea of a detachable LED strip display or I saw it elsewhere on some other guitar. I sure like the idea.

I remember seeing a tape sized display that was flexible or a hard cased rectangular display that was separate. But you're right it has disappeared. Don't know if I saved a photo of that years back.

Looked in my archives, nothing found.
