All about the MODEL
3

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.

fretboard radius

Almost every steel string guitar has a radiused fretboard. The radius usually ranges from 9.5" to 16". While this may sound like a wide range, it is almost impossible to perceive the difference by eye. Our model 1 will fit any of these steel string guitar fretboards perfectly.

A few electrics, notably certain older Fenders and copies of them, have a more extreme radius. This radius is about 7.5", and the difference is visible. For these, we have the model 4.

Sometimes people think of their acoustic guitar fretboard as "flat." If they are comparing their Martin to their Telecaster, it may be flatter ...but chances are, it is not flat. It is very unusual to find a steel string guitar with a truly flat fretboard, but in those rare cases -- perhaps custom instruments, or some resophonics played Spanish style -- then our model 2 would be the right choice.
