Overview

In 2004, The Performance Original set a new standard in capo design. Players loved the way that it kept the guitar in tune, but wanted it to be smaller and lighter, without compromising the tone. All that has been impossible until now: The new Performance 2 gives you the ultimate capo experience.

Not only has G7th made it slimmer and lighter, but they've also reversed its patented clutch mechanism, which gives it a lightning fast squeeze-on, squeeze-off action. It has also been designed to store behind the nut or on the peghead when not in use.

G7th Performance 2. Smaller - Faster - Lighter

"This capo really takes care of business, so I'm free to focus on my playing." Richard Thompson, Novello Award Winner

Features
  • Slimmer and lighter than before
  • Lightning fast squeeze-on, squeeze-off action
  • Stores behind the nut or on the peghead when not in use

MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY

Honestly I read tons of reviews about these before buying one with my latest guitar. I didn't believe any kind of hype, nor do I ever write reviews, but I had to in this case. My Khyser and Shubb constantly had to go on at weird angles to adjust for uneven tension, and they never fit any 2 guitars the same. Was a constant pain switching on and off and up and down. With the G7th, as long as you put it on straight it works. perfect tuning and tone up and down the neck. I've never been as wowed by such a simple change as I was switching to G7th ...and I am not looking back.

Can not stop fret buzz no matter how I position it or how hard I squeeze it onto the neck. I have 2 Martins and a Alvarez and none can use it. Paige capo is the one to get, mine is old but it works fine I just wanted a 2nd capo. I never should wasted my money on this thing, it just looked kinda cool in the pictures. Looks good and is well made but it doesn't work.

    Comments about G7th Performance 2 Guitar Capo:

    I had read a number of reviews on this capo. I was a concerned because some of the reviews said it didn't hold all the strings down and there was string "buzzing". I wrote the company and asked about this problem. First, they were very quick in their response (that's good). Second, they had noticed the problem and made some changes to the compression pad design. Third, they said they would back up their product 100%. If I had a problem I could contact them and they would help me in any way they could, even by replacing it.

    Now, I have had my capo for 2 months. I did have some string "buzzing" in the beginning, but have had less over time. I think the rubber compression pads needed to be broke-in. I now find that there are fewer and fewer times that I encounter this problem. I will sometimes use both hands to secure it in place or move it within a fret to correct a string buzz.

    I am not a professional, I play for myself and once in awhile for family & friends. I would not recommend it at this time for a professional or someone that plays for groups of people. There are times when I need to adjust the capo several times if I have a string buzzing. I would feel very un-professional doing this in front of a group of people.

    Bottom line is, I like it. It may give me a little problem once in awhile, but for me that's ok. It's smaller then I thought it would be. I would recommend it to a friend, but I would also let a them use mine to see if they like it before they buy their own.

        Comments about G7th Performance 2 Guitar Capo:

        I just used this at one Sunday service, but I love the ease of use. There was a bit of a learning curve going straight out of the box. Sometimes the capo doesn't grip the strings as well as I like and you get that twingy sound. But changing positions was fairly easy and it didn't throw my guitar out of tune - so that's a big plus.

                I just bought this at Guitar Center and I can't wait to return it! It's well made, I won't argue that. I saw videos on it and its nice that you only need one hand. Now, I have certifiable grip strength and believe me when I tell you, you can't close this tight enough. There is so much fret buzz its not even funny. My metal shub capo is much better at half the price. Don't waste your money on this.

                  I was truly disappointed in this capo after the hype on the retail page.
                  I have a Goodall OM acoustic and it did a poor job of clamping down on the top strings. No matter how hard I tried to compress it it still failed to dampen over time completely the 1st string. It did work on my semi-hollow body electric arch top because the neck is narrower and it has flat wound strings...it also worked on a baritone use with nylon strings so I will keep it...but, buyer beware, it is not as good as it is "charged up $$$".+
