Overview

The G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo is designed specifically for enhanced performance on 12-string guitars, and it's simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great! Push the lever to release the arms. Features a longer arm than the standard model - for wider fingerboards. A specially formulated rubber applies even pressure to the octave strings. The G7th Capo fits snugly behind the fret. Squeeze to tighten it from above or below. Simply press the lever to release the Performance capo.

G7th Capos employ a wrap-spring clutch that consists of just 3 elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the 2 hubs. When the spring is forced over the 2 hubs, attempting to rotate in the direction which opens the capo wraps it down tightly on the hubs, positively engaging them.

Rotation in the other direction, to tighten the G7th Capo onto the strings, is not restricted. To release the capo, the control tang is moved in the direction to unwind the spring, thus releasing the clutch.

The beauty of this type of clutch for use in a guitar capo is that it can be adjusted in tiny increments. The clutch mechanism is a modified tried-and-tested design used in printers and copiers to provide a simple decoupling and overrun device.

QUITE A CAPO

By Johnny Guitar

from Atlanta, Georgia

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years and I own five other capos. None of them were able to do what this one did for my new acoustic/electric Martin 12-string jumbo guitar ...effectively hold down the thinner octave strings G-D-A-E, as well as, the regular strings, making it sound as though there was no capo in use at all. I could capo up to the fifth fret without having to retune the guitar. This capo is extremely easy to use and it does not pull the strings out of tune (much). Only a minimum of tuning is required before playing the instrument again. The Korg GA 40 is ideal for tuning a 12 string guitar. It is also small enough to play a standard B7th chord, with your palm and fingers extending over the top of it, without too much effort. In short, if you have a 12 string, this is the best capo to give you a clear sound, no string buzz and an ease of operation that makes this capo worth the money that you'll have to shell out for it. I could not be more pleased with this product. It does everything that it should and more.

Doesn't work

By Tom

from Heber City, UT

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

Nicely made capo, but it doesn't work on my Breedlove 12-string. The treble strings aren't depressed all the way, and they all buzz badly. No amount of fiddling with positioning or pressure corrected the problem. I'm sending it back for a refund - my old Shubb capo works better, and it was much cheaper.

G-7th 12 string capo

By Mathew

from Bend, OR

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

I tried a 12-string in my local shop, used a Kyser 12-string capo, which worked quite well. I just bought a Leo Kottke 12-string and ordered the G-7th 12-string capo with it, but wish I would have gone for the Kyser. Priced better, yes, but more importantly, the G-7th does not depress all of the strings no matter how hard I squeeze it down. Cool design, but for the 12-string it is not strong enough. And who doesn't want a good capo with that lower tuning? I will be returning it and using the Kyser.

Disappointing product

By Acoustic Guitar Player

from Fort Lauderdale

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

I ordered this specifically for my 12 string and was very disappointed. While it is simple to operate, it did not adequately fret the 3rd and 4th strings and moved too easily when my left hand made contact while playing open chords. I was equally disappointed when the local store would not accept the return as a credit for other equipment and when I was told the shipping cost to return it was my obligation. I learned my lesson and would urge other players to try any capo before ordering on line.

G7th Capo

By Kat

from Dallas, TX

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

I loved the G7th capo with my 6-string so I thought it would be perfect with my 12-string too. It was not ... I have a Breedlove 12-string and the G7th does not push all strings down from the 3rd fret up. Too bad 'cause I use exclusively with my 6-string.

Yup, It Works...

By Robert Pizzo

from Redding CT

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

This capo fits the requirement - to capo a Rickenbacker 12 String at the 7th fret. Not only does it have the power to clamp the high and low Es, it's a bit curved to really hug the neck of the Rick, which I think is the key. "If I Needed Someone" here I come!

Comments about G7th 12-String Performance Guitar Capo:

I have found that this G7th capo is far better then all the capo's out there! The one I had before, I past it on to a student that needed it. That capo was over 10 years old and still is doing it's job! I felt it was time for a new one. The feel is so easy to change from up & down the neck, with one hand. The capo is very strong that it will last forever. This company out did them all. I am happy and I know you will be. It is a great looking capo and it will keep looking great! Take it home and try it on your guitar, you wil be changing key's on your guitar. Thank, Larry Chisholm
