The ultimate capo! On my acoustic guitar most capos work just fine. But for my electric guitars, the other capos I have tend to make me go out of tune. I picked up a G7 Performance 2 a few years ago, put it on my Strat, and I was still in tune! It's the only capo I've used since then. Love the design - it doesn't get in the way of my hand when trying to make chords!
Greatests capo invention ever! So easy to use and performs perfectly! Highly recommended.
I doubt there's an easier to use capo out there. My good friend MikeinFIFTY, formerly of Hidden in Plain View, told me about this product and since he's a world famous rock star, I figured I'd give it a go. It gets 5 stars easily. I wish I could give it FIFTY stars. It definitely deserves FIFTY.
State of the art capo!
Tremendously sleek neat capo that works on my electric's and acoustic's.
A great capo from a great company
The capo works great. The clutch functionality makes it easy to quickly place the capo at the desired fret with just the right amount of pressure to avoid buzzing while also not causing tuning problems. I used one of the spring loaded "pistol grip" capos for years before the tuning problems they cause forced me to try a G7th performance capo. I was completely blown away with this capo's ease of use and general overall quality.
On top of a great capo, you also get the benefit of purchasing from a reliable and trustworthy manufacturer. When they say lifetime warranty, they really mean it. I bought one of the original G7th Performance capos years ago. Recently the rubber that contacts the backside of the guitar neck started to lose its adhesive, so I e-mailed the company asking about a replacement about a week before Christmas. They said they didn't have any more of the original performance capos, but offered to send me one of the new models. All I had to do was send them a picture of my old capo and my address! I was completely blown away when I got a package THE NEXT DAY from the manufacturer in Leicester, United Kingdom (basically halfway around the world from my home). I can only imagine what this sort of shipping must have cost, but I definitely appreciate it very much.
A very special "Thank you" to Simon Campling of G7th for the outstanding support, and for getting me a replacement so fast especially during the holidays.
works so good
Hands down the best capo. I lost mine and tried to go back to another brand-forget it! The is the one that I need and works far better. it really performs and works the best! I cant live without it
the best capo i have used
this is the best and most accurate capo I have ever used. Excellent product!
A fabulous capo
From an engineering standpoint, this is a nearly perfect gadget.
Worth every penny
I bought this capo 6 years ago after being repeatedly frustrated with the quality of other products. All I can say is that it still works flawlessly, you can apply it with one hand every time and exert exactly how much pressure you want. It's survived countless shows and who knows how many times its been thrown across the room, yet it shows no signs of slowing down yet. 45 dollars isn't much when you can use it for the rest of your life.
Best Capo I have ever used. Does it's job and stays out of the way.
The Best Capo
This capo is awesome. I was having trouble with buzzing on my high end guitar when I would use my Kyser Quick Change Capo. The neck seemed to be straight so I wasn't sure what the issue was. I started using this capo and there is no longer any buzzing. It takes a little bit to get used to adjusting the tension yourself but after you get the hang of it it's really easy. The design is great. It is very slim and not at all bulky but you can tell it is sturdy and high quality. I would highly recommend this capo if you have problems with fret buzz.
I'd heard a lot of good things about this capo so I thought I'd give it a try. It doesn't use a spring but is rather a "clutch" type of capo. So it really works like your hand when you play a bar chord. You only have to make it as tight as necessary to capo the strings without buzzing. This results in better intonation when using the capo. It's also really easy to put on and take off and it's not a big and cluncky thing.
Convenient and easy to use.
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 lightness and thick rubber stoppers in protecting the neck.
I was sick of having to retune my electric every time I moved my capo. This thing does the trick. So much nicer.
A perfect find!
So glad I found this capo. I had been using the Kyser capo but found it a bit hard to attach. The G7 is very easy to attach and looks great when on the fret or at rest on the headstock and doesn't apply excessive pressure to the strings. I would highly recommend it.
Great capo. 4 stars only because I'm not sure it's worth this kind of $ when competitors are considerably more inexpensive. I use those capos as well.
Cool G7th Capo
The G7th capo is a slick looking design and easy to move on the neck of your guitar. I like that when you put it on your strings it is not in the way of your fingering. The one draw back is getting the capo down on the string tight enough to keep them from making vibration noise. It does not have a spring to hold the pressure on your strings it only uses finger power and a locking mechanism. I sometimes have to adjust a couple of times to stop the noise. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a good capo that is out of the way of your fingers.
In my mind, the learning curve of how to actually accurately apply the capo isn't worth the result. In my line of work, I only have a couple of seconds to place the capo on the guitar. Having to figure out the exact pressure point is too much, in my opinion.
Smaller than my other g7
Smaller than my other G7
Not in love anymore
Loved this when I first received it. A few moths later it is useless. Will no clamp down to where the strings don't buzz. Went back to my much cheaper capos
Nope - better, cheaper capos exist
This thing is outrageously overpriced for reasons unknown. To boot, it just doesn't work that well. I have a lot of different guitars, and for the older, more "characteristic" ones (aka can't be set up with super low action) this just can't cut it. Doesn't get tight enough to eliminate buzz on certain guitars, and bent strings get stuck in their bent position. It's kind of a fun design until you realize it doesn't work. I sold it and bought the Planet Waves NS Tri-Action and am so much happier. It's also just about half the price. I gotta say, I'm done with G7th.
Not the best
Although the design is good, it doesn't work very well. I got mine and the next day it broke for absolutely no reason. The release mechanism just stopped working. I also found that it doesn't squeeze the strings hard enough which causes a buzz. Even after i applied as much squeeze as I possibly could, the capo didn't grip the strings hard enough. I might just have gotten a bad capo... But I'm not satisfied with it and it definitely is NOT worth $50. I would not recommend this capo for a gigging musician because it just isn't reliable.
I've had multiple "original" version G7 Performance capos and this new "version 2.0" takes everything that was great about the original and throws it out the window! The kicker... it even costs MORE!!!
The biggest disappointment is that it doesn't even work well. I've tried multiple times to use it on ANY of my guitars (various Taylors, electric guitars with different neck profiles, etc.) and no matter how I put it on I still get buzzing strings! It's like it just doesn't fit!? I can only get it to function if I completely squeeze the snot out of it and even then it's hit or miss. I actually feel like I'm going to damage my guitar to get it to work... not a good feeling.
Don't even ask about getting it off of the guitar! The new clutch mechanism is absolutely horrible as well. The old one was smooth and was easily removable without much effort. Just press the release lever and voilà, off it goes. I have to wrestle with the new capo's release lever (and push REALLY HARD) for it to "maybe" decide to release.
All in all... a big let down. Sorry G7th, go back to the drawing board! You took a great product and destroyed it.
