        "Looks good on paper ..."

          Comments about Paige 12-String Guitar Capo:

          A capo that adequately works for the octave strings has been elusive. The concept behind raised sections to address that look good, but materials used could be higher quality. (BTW - I would expect that to come at a higher $$ amount, and it would be worth it.)
          The hinge for the piece that secures the capo in place seems cheap, and and it does not glide on/off easily. I actually lubricated it to see if it would help - not so much. One review I read noted that the bare metal on the top and bottom can actually come in contact with the neck and result in dings to the finish. Valid observation. As also noted by another review, the spacers are difficult to slide on, and the suggestion of helping with a little Finger Ease was a good one. Once in place, the concept works well. Secures everything in place, no intonation problems.
          So my conclusion is that this is a good concept poorly executed. I'd like to see the same basic design with a bit more attention paid to the quality details.
          I would not recommend the current design.

          depth of reach needs be a little deeper. otherwise, this is an excellent capo.
          best 12 string capo i've ever used.
          just difficult to assemble.
          better instructions would be helpful, too.

              Comments about Paige 12-String Guitar Capo:

              I got the Paige capo a couple of months ago, thinking of using it with my Jay Turser JT-Hawk 12 electric. I got around to opening the package today, to try it on my "new" (to me) Fender Villager acoustic-electric. I had read the reviews before I ordered it, but forgot about the little rings/tubes until I saw them in the package, after I had installed the capo on the Villager. I'm glad I didn't lose them.
              So far, I've only tried the capo at the first fret, and it seemed to work pretty well, with no buzzing, flatting, or other "rude" sounds. I unclipped it and stored it behind the nut, but under the strings. I'm not sure if there's enough length in the adjustment screw to store it on top of the strings, and just move it into place behind a fret, as another reviewer did.
              The tubes/rings will be taped inside the blister-pack, in case I need them someday.
              I might try it on the Hawk-12, just to see if it fits, but I'm thinking I might go with a different brand for the electric twelver.
              My Yamaha FG-230 has a couple of other types of capos in its case, probably a good thing since another reviewer found the Paige doesn't fit a Yamaha's neck so well. I've kept the FG-230 (a 1973, I think) tuned a half step below concert pitch for years, just to try and reduce some tension on its neck. It has earned its retirement, anyway.

                I took the rings off, and tightened the capo up nice, and tight, and it worked well. With the rings on everything went sharp and buzzed like a bee.

                Comments about Paige 12-String Guitar Capo:

                This is the only capo that I have ever found that works on a 12 string acoustic guitar without bending the smaller octave strings sharp. It is a good design, but it needs improvement. It is not usable past the fourth fret on my Seagull, because the capo is too narrow. When new, you have to install the four little plastic tubes onto the capo. There are no instructions regarding installing the small tubes, so I had to use Fast-Fret lube to get them over the first tube. It was not easy. Also, you have to position them correctly so that they make contact with the correct strings once in use. The capo is awkward to use, and I had to put electrician's tape on the sides of the capo so it wouldn't scratch the neck of my guitar. In spite of all these issues, this capo does a stellar job on my 12 string for the first four frets. I can coax it up to the fifth fret using extreme caution not to dig up the neck. I was on the verge of selling my guitar out of frustration because no capo ever worked for me without having to retune every time I changed position. I really hope that Paige comes out with a bigger 12 string capo. In the meantime, at least I now have a limited use 12 string capo.

                    Played guitar 30 yrs. Currently play a Taylor 12 string with Kyser capo. Notice the thin unwound strings next to the thicker wound strings weren't voicing properly. Bought the Shubb C Series 12 string, the G7th 12 String, and the Paige 112 String capos. Tried them all. Paige is the only one that worked flawlessly. G7 has to be pinched and adjusted. Shubb is easist to clamp, but doesn't always work. Paige is hardest to clamp and configure (with the o-rings) but once set,...it works all the time. Cannot make quick changes with Paige so probably not as good for live music,...but provides best voicing.

                    This capo really provides clean, buzz-free sound, and I really like it! Since it is somewhat difficult to take on and take off a guitar, particular if one is performing, the clamp should simply be loosened, slide the capo down and behind the nut at the top of the neck; don't unhook it. Then slide into place and tighten as needed. I even store my guitar in the case with this capo remaining over the nut. It's not the kind of capo you want to use with many different guitars, but dedicate it to one guitar for the least hassle.

                    Reliable Capo

                    Comments about Paige 12-String Guitar Capo:

                    I've searched for ages for a dependable capo and this is it. An ingenious design with the tubes providing pressure on the first four harmony strings without muting the main strings produces even voicing across all the fret and strings. You must find the ideal spot for where the tubes line up but once that's done, this capo will work on any fret without buzzing or detuning. I'm thrilled with it and recommend it to anyone with an acoustic twelve string.
