Its easy to use one handed and holds nicely on the neck of the guitar.
BobCat
I love how the tension is completely adjustable, so you can apply exactly the right amount of pressure to the strings.

I'm using it on a standard acoustic/steel string guitar, and it fits perfect.

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Classical Guitar Verified Purchase
I bought the Planet Waves Guitar Capo in black the other day, and it works great!

I did a lot of shopping around because I wanted a good capo for my acoustic electric guitar, and when I came upon this one I liked the style.

BENEFITS:
-The Capo is screw on from the bottom, so that means you can adjust how tight it is on the strings (So you can barre chords or just silence strings).
-The black looks great, and the material is nice- I don't think it could scratch the guitar neck unless you wore off the thick padding.
-This could go either way, but the capo is nice and small. I was a bit surprised when I got it, but it works just fine. Would probably be easy to lose if you have a messy place though!

DRAWBACKS:
You can't really mount the capo on the headstock, even if you try to screw it on. The only way I can figure out to keep it on is to clamp both the top tuning key and the headstock. (Not recommended of course)

OVERALL:
This is a great capo. It's built well, does what it needs to do, and it looks nice. Like I said, my only gripe is that it doesn't fit on the headstock very well. Definitely recommended!

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Classical Guitar Verified Purchase
Using a capo on a classical guitar can be difficult -- the neck is wide, and thick. Intonation suffers, and the bass strings tend to buzz. The Planet Waves NS Classical Guitar Capo solved these problems. Because it is tightened onto the neck by a screw action, it always pushes the strings down against the neck straight.

Classical guitars are also light weight; this capo is made of aluminum and is also quite light so it doesn't change the feel of the guitar in your hands. It has a sleek, low profile and therefore doesn't interfere with left hand fingering as can be the case with spring capos.

Some players feel it takes too long to put it on the guitar or object to the fact that it requires both hands. I don't find that to be the case, presumably you're reasonably coordinated or you wouldn't attempt to play classical guitar. Yes, you'll need to use both hands, but ultimately the Planet Waves NS is a quicker install because it works correctly the first time. The worst thing is starting to play a song and realizing one's capo isn't getting the job done.

Capos aren't used too extensively in classical guitar music, but you still need one in your case. But if you're like me and also like to play your classical for finger style folk or pop music (esp. 'Americana') you should get one of these.

Now I want one for my steel string guitars too.

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Silver Verified Purchase
Capos are one of those things that practically every picker has an opinion about - and a preference. Bluegrass guitarists tend to want to play in no more than three or four different chord positions. (In fact, many never bother learning beyond those - why bother when you've got a capo?!?!?) In fairness the bluegrass style of picking seems to work better when played in certain positions - a "G-Run" works best in, you guessed it, G position. Thus using a capo for A, B-flat, B, and so on allows us to get that same sound on up the neck.

A lot of guitar players like to try every new gadget or gizmo that comes their way - even if theirs work just fine. You're apt to find an assortment of picks, tuners, and capos in my guitar case. So, my rating on THIS capo is based on what I personally want in a capo. It's probably not the best one I own, but for the price and ease of use I have to rank it high. There are other capos that work well in "clamping" the strings down, but this one just somehow suits me better. The three main things I look for in a capo are: accuracy, ease of use, and a low profile.

This capo has been fairly accurate for me. In tightening, it exerts an even amount of pressure across all the strings which lessens (but doesn't necessarily eliminate) the need for re-tuning. I like to be able to reach up and move it with one hand (the spring-type capos are good for this but you have no adjustment in the amount of pressure they apply...) and with very little practice I was able to loosen, move, and re-tighten with ease. With my big hands, I need all the room I can get behind the fret - getting a B7 chord is just almost possible with this one.

I use the classical model on my nylon gits. This version runs out of adjustment on the low frets on my Seagull Grade. Works, but I would like it to have a bit more range.

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
This capos biggest strength, and it's only weakness, is that it has to be tightened each time you put it on. Get this capo if you're very aware of tuning issues that crop up when using one. With my old capo, which just clamps on at one tightness, my B string invariably gets too tight, bringing it noticeably sharp, even when I'm only capo-ing on the 2nd fret. With the NS, one can tighten it just enough to fret the strings without bringing them out of tune. I proved it to myself using a tuner. If you don't care about tuning to this extent, and you want ease of use, then you're probably better off with one of the other models. Since this is the only capo I know of that solves the tuning issue, and I found it in the process of trying to solve that problem, I give it five stars.
