I am using a capo occasionally for my electrics from time to time. I have a G7th and a G7th art , which is supposed to be for all radius’ but it seems to pull the notes sharp slightly . It works great on my 9.50 Fenders and Gibson’s are fine . Any recommendations for a capo that works good with vintage radius would be appreciated.

The big, ornamented Kayser capos, meant for 12 strings, are perfect. They work on anything.

Anybody like the Thalias? A friend recommended them, but they are pr pricey.

Cheers,

Can the Shubb capos be put on, and taken off, with one hand? I need a capo that i can remove mid-way through a song. It's for a Bullet Tele and a Thinline Tele, both with 9.5" radius.

Off, no problem. On, likely need a second hand to do it right, unless you gots the dexterity.

I've got 3 shubb's and if I should ever need a fourth capo...it will be a shubb too! They have never let me down ....and..... they don't look like some weirded-out wi-fi antenna growing out of your neck... lol
