Awarded gold medals for most innovative new product and best overall capo in the 2008 Players Choice Awards, the G7th Performance Capo is a revolutionary new mechanism that allows ultra-precise placement and clamping without pulling the strings of your instrument out of tune. It's is easily squeezed into place with one hand, and released using the lever on the back. When not in use, it stores neatly on the end of your instrument's headstock. This version is designed for 6-string guitars (both acoustic and electric).
Rotation in the other direction, to tighten the capo onto the strings, is not restricted. To release the capo, the control tang is moved in the direction to unwind the spring, thus releasing the clutch.
How To Use a G7th Performance Capo
|Push the small black lever to release the arms||Position the capo just behind the fret||Squeeze to tighten from above or below||Press the small black lever to release||Store on the headstock when not in use|
Top Customer Reviews
I guess my feeling is that they tried to make the capo smaller and sleeker, in the process maybe sizing it down to where it has lost versatility. I think it needs a millimeter or so more back to top depth to fit all neck profiles. I'll still use it since it is easier on my left hand, but I'm a little disappointed in the fit.
Function - Well, failed miserably. The unit has a level around you thumb area. Pressing upward releases the tension and you simply squeeze the capo over the desired fret until there is no longer buzzing and you haven't gone sharp. All well and good in theory. This is the 2 unit and the last I'm afraid.
Problem A - the lever for the thumb doesn't release as smoothly as you need it to causing a fumbling with the capo as you are trying to release and pull it off. It's extremely poor when your are stretching to place in on the end of the headstock. You will drop it occasionally.
Problem B - Especially the second one I purchased had a problem of sticking or being sticky while opening. Jerky almost. In fact, the second one stopped opening. It just closed more and more and then stuck in the closed position. I literally received the package from Amazon, tried it once, took it off 20 seconds later and it never opened again. Placed my return within 10 minutes of UPS leaving.
Final thoughts - In theory it's great. Just being able to place your desired pressure on the capo without a level and spring or tension bolt, is great...unfortunately these guys just haven't gotten the mechanics down on making this gig worthy. It's slim and light design makes it really desirable and I've desperately wanted this to work, but I'm afraid I can't trust it. Very disappointed.
