G7th Performance Capo 2

I remember when the G7th capo first found its way to our shores from the UK. As I do with most gear fads, I withheld judgement until I had a chance to use it onstage. Nowadays, the G7th is the only capo I'll take onstage with me anymore. It really is that good. I find that on a Crowdster, the Shubb S-1 is a better fit, but for all other guitars, including my workhorse Renaissance RS6, the G7th rules.

The G7th capo is the only one I've ever used that offers true one-hand operation, in both the tension adjustment and application/removal. To attach it to the fretboard, you just squeeze until the tension is appropriate, and let go. To remove it, you just pop the little switch on the bottom, and it's off (and the newer geometry of this capo means it can go on your headstock, unlike the original G7th). Yes, it's a bit on the expensive side, but once you master its usage, you'll never go back.

G7th for the win

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.

Very nice!

A substantial well-crafted capo, quick and easy. John and the cats at ShorlineMusic are the best! Thanks

Love this capo!

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!

Excellent Capo

Love this capo! Easy to move quickly up and down the neck. Works great with my Martin and Fender Strat.

Cool, without the neck growth!!

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.
