Best Capo Ever!!! Jul 22, 2008
By Aaron P. Harmon
This product is truly amazing. I was a little hesitant, becuase of the price, but based on the other reviews, I took the plunge. This thing is simply the highest quality capo I have ever used. It is worth every penny.
Here are the pros:
1) A retarded monkey could figure out how to use this thing within about 12 seconds.
2) The build quiality is so good that I believe you could run over this thing with a MAC truck and gig with it the same night without a back-up.
3) You have excellent control over the tension
4) It is very safe. I use this on my US made Jackson soloist and US Washburn N4 with no fear that it will harm the finish. It has plenty of padding in all the right places.
1) if you are reading this, you must not have one. That is all.
The price is not a con. When you get this, you will see that it is well worth the cheddar. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Clearly the best! Nov 27, 2006
By R. E. Maurer
I've been playing the guitar for 40 years, and have tried my share of gizmos, gadgets and capos. Without question, the G7th capo is best that I've experienced. I let a few friends try it, and they ordered their own G7th capos. I've purchased two more for Christmas gifts. The quality is matched only by the outstanding performance. If you use a capo, you'll really love this one!

You Get What You Pay For (Sometimes!) Dec 18, 2006
By D. Reinstein
This new type and design of capos, manufactued in England (and warranteed for life) is truly wonderful. Available in six and twelve string steel-string as well as a new classical version, they are all easy to use, solidly built and - perhaps most importantly, easy to put on and take off with one hand without having to retune! For a musician, this is the most cricial element - that, and that it is 'kind' to the materials used in the manufacture of a good guitar. I use mine on a Martin HD28 and have had no problems whatsoever. A great move toward a new generation of capos! Not cheap - but worth every cent.

lovin' it! Jul 11, 2008
By Lynda Shuster
Every time there's a new capo on the market, I buy it. Always searching for the ideal capo. Shubbs are the original standard, but not the one I reach for anymore. I prefer my Keysers to the Dunlop Trigger, and think the Keyser partials are very nifty, but still the not the ones I reach for anymore. Then I found the brass Dunlop with the screw mechanism. That was my favourite until I tried the Bird of Paradise. Beautiful AND functional. And now, the G7th. The best so far. The only possible downside, but it's to be seen, is that I wonder if the tension will loosen over time? Not curretly a problem, but I wonder...?
Anyway, for now, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Convenient and easy to use Jan 07, 2007
Pretty much just echoing what everyone has said so far...
This capo is awesome!
Just squeeze the clamp to your liking and it will freeze into place. Pull the thumb lever and it releases. Easy to attach, remove, and re-attach with one hand. I also appreciate the thick rubber stoppers in protecting the neck.
I was a bit wary at first, due to the price, but the second I used it I knew it was worth every penny.
