While some prefer the quick scissor-style of the Kysers, I like the action of these much better. The Shubb has a lever in the back and applies no pressure to the neck until this piece is engaged. This means that the capo can be positioned fully (and easily) and *then* pressure is applied all at once evenly across the neck. Because of this, bending strings and intonation problems are not an issue here.
Since many keep their capos parked on their headstocks, I will note that the Shubb does *not* fit on the headstock of my Seagull guitar. If you know anything about Seagull, though, you probably know that they make a non-standard funny-looking headstock. It fits just fine on the neck of Segaull, of course. I have also successfully parked it many times on the more standard headstock shapes of most other guitars.
All in all, you won't be disappointed. Really great piece of kit. You can visit the Shubb website where they've got a bunch of good info on their capos.
This is the original Shubb capo, designed for most acoustic guitars with metal strings. The Shubb website describes the huge range of specific capos they make, each with their own specialized use. The C1 is probably the most universal of all the models. This fits a Les Paul Traditional 08 (Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus Electric Guitar, Heritage Cherry Sunburst), a PRS SE Custom 22 Guitar, Grey Black with Tremolo Bridge, and Epiphone LP Special II Les Paul Collection Electric Guitar, Vintage Sunburst electrics. The primary use is for a Laguna acoustic.
Follow the simple instruction card included with the capo to adjust the tension. It's key to not get too much tension.
We've had trouble figuring out where to park this capo. Mostly it goes in a pocket. Once the capo is adjusted to fit the neck, it doesn't clamp tight on the headstock. Not a huge deal, but a consideration.
Ordered off of Amazon and it shipped the same day.
I just got it in the mail yesterday, and it snapped right on the LP with a firm click. I didn't even have to adjust it. It looks amazing in use... and is just the best and simplest design.
You know when you feel it lock into place that it is staying there no matter what. Don't forget to remove it when you guitar is resting. It's easy to forget it's there. Forget the oversized medieval torture device style capos... this never effects my fret thumb or forefinger--
exactly what I was looking for in a capo.
I will have these 2 for a long time, and I'm a Shubb guy from this day forward.

Works well. Doesn't clamp the strings down so hard that it throws the guitar out of tune.Published 3 months ago by Dale Revercomb
Just what I needed. I'm sure it'll last me forever, but I'm also positive I'll lose it before it goes bad and I'll need to buy another one.Published 3 months ago by Garyngt3
