Paige 6-String Guitar Capo Black
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Guitars have different radius' built into the fretboard. Classical guitar necks have a flat cross-section, while Elec and US style steel string guitar necks have a curved cross-section. But there are exceptions that will make it hard to get a perfect capo result:
I have a classical, a 1970's Takamine, that has a micro curve radius neck. Every set-up man has fought me until he sights down the neck, sure enough: a perceptible curve ! Elec and US style steel string box guitars have different radius curves on the neck ! Until capos are manufactured to specifications appropriate to different neck profiles there will always be some fidgeting with the darned capo. Until then, Paige is the best.
I ask guitar manufacturers: Please provide product/model specific capos to each guitar you sell. Guitar players deserve the engineering values violin players have enjoyed for 500 years. It matters.

For me, it works way better than the spring tension capos.
What I like -
- Stays on the guitar! I never forget it. I've ordered several for my usual performance guitars.
- Keeps ALL my strings in tune to whatever fret I put it on. I've used it up to the 7th fret and it's great.
- Sturdy. It looks "dainty" when you pull it out of the package. But it's not! Now, some have said it breaks easy. Actually, I think it breaks on those that don't trust that several turns of the screw is all you need. I think some overtighten and then . . . it breaks! Don't overtighten. Turn the tension screw a few times and then test it. It'll be fine.
What I don't like . . .
I've been performing with this capo every weekend for a month. So far, I don't have any dislikes.
With the Paige, I can set the pressure perfectly so the stings are in tune but don't buzz or thump. Also, these work on both electric and acoustic guitars...and my Ukulele. Yes, they are a little more troublesome to install but worth the extra 5 seconds.
Update Nov. 2015. I just ordered another one so I will have one for each guitar. Love it!

None the less, it is a fantastic capo. I play bluegrass folk and blues and I really cannot fault it. It is my fourth capo and the best so far.
Easy to use. Very good sound.
I highly recommend it.
Putting it on and taking it off is a little bit of a pain but it does work well for intoation and lack of bulk and weight.
