        The version I received is different cosmetically that what is in the picture. The new version has ridges and a prominent 'Kyser' logo with a religious symbol (crucifix). Functionally the product works the same as the old one - meaning it's terrific. I've used the old version heavily over the past 10-15 years and it still works great. Just be aware that it may look differently that what is shown (I purchased the silver one).

                    Comments about Kyser Quick-Change Capo 6-String:

                    I think many of you are missing the point of this Kyser Quick-Change capo: It provides less pressure on the strings so it DOESN"T pull your strings out of tune and can be more easily used than their stronger-springed units that work so well on acoustic guitars. I've played guitar for over 50 years, now and I have used Kysers for many years, those for 12-stinged guitars with the strongest springs, the 6-string acoustic models with somewhat less spring strength, and then the Quick-change still with the least spring pressure of them all for use on low-action electric guitars.

                    A 12-string guitar requires a somewhat wider capo to accommodate the wider necks, as well as the strongest spring to handle the tension of a .012-.056 or .58 gauge set of strings. A 6-string acoustic guitar requires the narrower width and spring tension of 6 fewer strings (less strong spring).

                    Some electric guitarists are using capos on a set of .008s and very low action. This app requires the Quick-Change capo you're seeing here.

                    You don't wear combat boots to an outdoor wedding, you wear what is appropriate for the setting. If you want to hate a Kyser or any other brand capo, use one made for 12-string acoustics on a .008" set of electric strings with extremely low action. You can really complain, then! But it's totally inappropriate and not fair to the manufacturer.

                    If you want to be happy, choose the right capo for the application. You don't buy a novice a $4200 electric guitar to learn on. They won't appreciate it and can't take advantage of its' nuances. Likewise, if you're a beginning guitarist, let a salesman/sales woman or a savvy friend guide you on choosing a capo for your particular guitar(s)and string set. Then you'll be in a much better position to give accolades or complaints. You certainly can't blame Kyser if you don't know enough to choose the right capo. It's inexperience that's to be faulted, here,not the manufacturer. Please don't throw the baby out with the bath water! There's nothing wrong with this capo unless a part breaks on you. Then you just buy another one,and get your money back on the one you bought. Any production line today can have quality control problems, like what you see with automobile parts. You return a faulty example to the auto store, you don't trash the item online because of one failure in your particular example. If you can't tell the difference between a Strymon reverb guitar pedal and the common garden variety reverb pedal, then buy the off-brand cheaper one and you'll be happy. After you've played for a few years, revist the array available and see if you can tell the difference then. If so, then buy the better pedal if you can distinguish between them and only if you can.

                    I need all three of Kyser's capos for different applications, but there might even be a need for more types than what I can distinguish, I don't know. I'm betting Eric Clapton or Steve Morse might know even more differences in these capos today where I can't even appreciate them at my level. For me, where I am now, I need 3 different ones, no more.

                    Please don't kill the market for the Quick-Change Kyser capos...some of us need them.

                            Having a capo to either make the chords easier, or pitch the song appropriately for the singer is essential. This style allows you to clip it on the head stock of the guitar when not in use, then quickly place it on the fretboard, even during a song with a key change, to get the chords and pitch you need. I have owned many and bought many for my guitar students, and this is the most dependable versatile design.

                              This is the most easy to use of the good capos available. Even changing capo position during a song is simple. The only problems I have with it are that it's a little overpriced IMO, and the spring will wear out and break. I find I have to carry two of them to performances because I never know when the spring will give out. It would be great if the spring were replaceable, but then they probably would never have to sell me a new one!

                                  Despite the fact this capo is advertised as an Acoustic capo, it works great on my electric guitar neck, I have several other capo's, and this one beats them in every way, it does require a little bit more effort to get it on, especially on acoustics with thicker necks, but after that, it works great.

                                    This is a good capo for the money. The spring is strong enough to hold strings firmly on any guitar I've used it on. I couldn't see paying extra for the fancy paint job. The silver works just as well for less money.
