OVERVIEW

Engineered for optimum performance in a sleek design.

With its light weight and low profile, the G7th Newport allows for fast, accurate capoing with fine tune adjustment - in position - on the fretboard of your instrument. An advancement on existing designs, the Newport's refined adjustment means that only the right amount of pressure needs be applied to clamp the strings - dramatically improving tuning problems and without the loss of sustain associated with the thick rubber of other capos. Its classic G7th styling will also look great on your guitar.

FEATURES
  • Fast and accurate
  • Can be fine tuned
  • Sleek design
  • Applies just the right amount of pressure
  • Maintans intonation and sustain

            Comments about G7th Newport 12 String Guitar Capo:

            I've yet to find a capo that works on my Alvarez 12-string without deadening strings or putting it hideously out of tune. I read a review of the G7 and decided to give it a chance, but it was a waste of time and money.

            If you jiggle and readjust the capo enough, most of the strings will sound, but I almost always have at least two or three that sound like dead rubber bands. The strings that sound are usually close to in tune, but the capo needs so much tweaking that it ruins the flow if I'm trying to play a set. I've given up on it and will go back to playing 12-string ONLY without a capo.

              Great design, other G7 works great with 6 string, but this 12 string version does not work well with my 12 string. You have to adjust just right to get to work right.

                Well made--I was worried about it fitting my 12 string Guild--you have to place it right and not too tight and it seems to work well

                  This works perfectly on my 12 string, before I could not find a great capo for my 12 string easy to use as well.

                    These work the best hands down for accuracy and intonation of 12 string guitars. The fine tuner really works and clamps perfectly in tune

                      It's still too narrow to cover the fretboard for a 12 string. The low and high E's still buzz when it's in position. Works okay on a 6 string, but I have other capos for them.
