I've been using a squeeze-the-handle capo for about a year now, and the reason I went away from it is because if you're not careful, you can flip it off your neck and damage your guitar, which is exactly what I did to my brand new Lowden. Enter the G7th. After research I decided on the G7th because you squeeze the whole capo after putting it onto the neck, then release it with a simple lever. It's virtually impossible to damage your guitar with the G7th, which makes it worth every penny.
A substantial well-crafted capo, quick and easy. John and the cats at ShorlineMusic are the best! Thanks
This capo is so easy to use. A good squeeze and it's firmly in place - no adjustments necessary. It fits well all the way up the neck and is easy to move. It stores easily on the music stand with just a squeeze. As always, the customer service at Shoreline is unsurpassed!
Love this capo! Easy to move quickly up and down the neck. Works great with my Martin and Fender Strat.
I'm still relatively new to the guitar & it's toys, but the only capo I have used in the past works fine, but looks like a growing projectile sticking out of the guitar neck. The G7th Performance 2 is really a cool addition to my bag. It works beautifully & looks as if it was made for the guitar. Yes, it requires a bit of squeezing to reach the proper pressure point, but when in place, it works & sounds great, without the ugly thing sticking up off the neck. I love it.
