All about the MODEL
The model 1 is our most popular model. For your steel string guitar, whether acoustic or electric,
capos on this page are probably the right choice.
If your guitar's neck is exceptionally wide, (string spacing
2" or greater) then you might need our model
3 (for 12-string guitar.)
If your guitar's neck is exceptionally thick, as some vintage
guitars and some V-neck models, then we have a special capo for
you: our S3V.

rare cases -- perhaps custom instruments, or some resophonics played Spanish style -- then our model 2 would
be the right choice.
