OVERVIEW

A smart capo that adjusts to apply exactly the right amount of pressure.

With its light weight and low profile, the G7th Newport Lightweight Capo 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.


Try this impressive capo and you'll wonder how you survived without it. Order today.

      Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

      This capo is small and unobtrusive when playing, and is made with quality materials. It is very small, lightweight, and easy to use.

        Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

        I've tried several capos over the years and I like this one the best so far. I notice that I have better control over the tension it exerts upon the smaller strings, thereby keeping them from going too sharp. I have found that it works best on my guitar if I insert it over the guitar neck from the bottom of the neck with the capo's opening pointing upwards. This seems to allow the G7th Newport's adjustable tension knob to favor its pinch force over the E,B & G small strings, which, as you know, are the strings more prone to going sharp when using a capo. Something else that is helpful when using capos (I saw this in a video once) is to position capos nearer to the frets instead of in the middle between the frets. Positioning a capo a little closer to the fret (but not too close) seems to cause a more equalized pressure over the six strings before they touch the fret.

        Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

        It is easy to use and if applied correctly you will never have to retune . it is light weight and small and works. You have to use it for awhile before you figure out the best way to apply it. They also replaced the capo for a strange defect it would no longer tighten down, but they gave me no problem and sent me a new one I also kept the old one I want to try and figure out what went wrong but they do stand behind their product and that is priceless. I use nothing else but this one now. The newport is a great capo . It came from the UK and that is a long distance . No shipping charges for me .

        Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

        The design is beautiful and the engineering is flawless. It is basically a sleek version of the Shubb lever-action capo with two key advantages: the knurled knob that adjusts the tension can be turned even when the capo is closed, and the clamping tension need not be changed as the capo moves up the neck. My only complaint is that the capo is wider than it needs to be for a standard-width steel-string neck. When the capo is perfectly centered on the neck, the open end extends just a bit further beyond the neck than would be ideal for comfort.

          Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

          This G7th capo is great improvement over other capo designs. It is so compact it doesn't stick out all over the guitar neck when you use it like those spring loaded clothes pin like capos.

          When you're not using it, you can keep it in your shirt pocket and not have to worry about it pinching you on the nipple either!

              Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

              This capo is shorter than appers on the photos, so it doesnt work on my classical guitar (i can only use it on the first 4 frets).   I think it would be work great with electric guitars. Over all its a high quailty and beautiful piece.

              Small enough but also big enough to last . the only problem I see is where to store it when playing in the key of G , it is small enough you could put it in your shirt pocket.

                Small enough to be ought of the way but you have to have it just right for string clarity. Only real complaint is no where to keep it. I put it under my fifth string on headstock but if you move to much it falls. Really a great concept.Lets see about longevity.

                An Excellent Interpretation of the Shubb Capo

                Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

                A very nice Shubb.
                Works essentially like a Shubb. Like a Shubb it works very well. Also like a Shubb, and unlike the more expensive G7th "Performance" model, it can't be easily clipped to your headstock between songs, and does not have that no prior adjustment required and perfect string pressure that you can easily achieve with the "Performance" model. The Shubb is a great capo and the Newport refines it a little, but the Performance model is cut above.
                Very well made.
                Expensive.
