I Have a Tacoma DM14CE acoustic electric. This capo works great on my guitar. My Tacoma is 1and 7/8ths inch wide at the nut and at the ninth fret it becomes 2 and 1/16th inch wide. The 10th fret is just slightly wider. This capo is almost 2 and 1/8th inch wide at the top inside dimension and has a 3/4 inch adjustment up and down on the screw. My Tacoma guitar keeps it's neck profile all the way to about 3/8ths of an inch forward of the nut. so this capo parks easily on the nut and beyond if you really want it out of your way and you can sinch it down there without putting to much pressure on the strings. Also you can move it to the 1st 2nd or 3rd fret and hang it on a wall hanger. NOW AFTER SAYING ALL THAT. I want to let some people know that this capo will not fit on the nut of some guitars, But will still work by opening and closing the little U shaped latch once you get it worn in to open an close easily. My brother has a High end Yamaha acoustic electric. The profile on that guitar starts to change about 1/4 inch before the nut and is too thick for this capo to ride up on the nut. Some guitar makers make their guitars thicker where the neck starts to bend at an angle past the nut because that's where most guitars break if they fall over, especially if the truss rod adjustment is on that end. This capo works as well on the 9th fret of my guitar no buzz clear as a bell sounds like a mandolin as it does on the 1st fret.

6 string capo: Does not work above 6th or 7th fret depending on your guitars neck size. Also if you use a guitar strap connect above the nut like I do you have to take the capo completely off after use (versus leaving it clapped above the nut as recommended by the manufacturer). Disengaging the cape with the tiny little "U" hook is not that easy either. Does work great when properly fitted and connected though. Personally speaking I think this is a work in progress as I still require the use of my Shubb or Kyser. Now that's 2 capo's I carry for the 6. The same is true for my 12.

    Comments about Paige 6-String Guitar Capo:

    I never tried a Paige capo....especially a screw type capo. I liked the convenience of a spring load. But, after trying this model I am sold. It actually seems to keep the guitar in tune up the neck much better than my old ones. I takes some practice to use it, but it is light and slim (so you can get it close to the fret). I am a fan. I now have one in each of my cases and a couple in the gig bag.

    Comments about Paige 6-String Guitar Capo:

    I really like this capo, it improves the sound. I'm a bluegrass player so it is always a struggle because we have to capo our guitars and then pound on them and expect them not to buzz. This one works really well on my Collings D2H (which is basically a prewar D28) even tension and good sound. Only negative is it won't park behind the nut on this guitar due to the width of the neck and the volute. So if you have something similar like a D28 or heaven forbid a 1 3/4" nut it may not work for your situation. I have to take this unit on and off like other capos. I may have to give this away to my banjo player and get a little wider one. Once again, nothing wrong with the actual unit, but someone dropped the ball on the description. This will not park on a lot of high end acoustics currently in use today. The capo is exactly 2" wide so measure! They don't tell you this and really should. Paige does make a wider unit some of my buddies have one. One other note: capos are finicky. I have found: Standard series Martins (D-18, D-35)work best with a Shubb capo. Guilds have a weird fretboard and require a planet waves screw-type unit. These Paiges work good on vintage style guitars w v-shaped necks. Hope this helps.

        Comments about Paige 6-String Guitar Capo:

        I've tried them all and this is one of my two must have capos--there are two because different guitars/cases dictate different choices to achieve a combination that allows the capo to never leave the neck. For my acoustic, this capo rests just above the nut when not in use. The accurate tension adjustment allows just enough pressure to hold it there without affecting tuning. Very economical because it elliminates the inevitable loss of capos which are set aside between uses. When in use: it slides quickly into place and adjusts easily to a perfect tension.

        Excellent Choice in Capos

        By Tweeker

        from Vicinity of Houston,Texas

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Paige 6-String Guitar Capo:

        This capo is one of the best I have ever had, and I've had plenty. Been playing for 50 years, and this one is my first choice when performing or recording. It takes a few seconds more than dunlop, kyser, or shubbs, but it is a precision capo that rarely, if ever, requires an adjustment in tuning after it is placed on the guitar. Very unobtrusive and easy to use; very small and easy to store!
        I had used this particular capo for 12+ years without any problems, but a few months back, the plastic/rubber sleeve on the crossbar fell apart. At that point I figured after 12 years it's time to get another. But, before I bought a new one, I wrote Paige Co. to see if I might be able to get a sleeve from them; about a week later I had two replacement sleeves at my post office. So ... I'm guessing since they sent me 2 gaskets, I'm set for the next 24 years. Not bad for a $15 investment. I have a couple of Kysers I use for alternate tunings, but in my opinion, Paige is the best choice.

                I've been playing over 35 years. The problem I've had with most capos is they don't clamp the strings down tight enough and the strings will buzz. Only one other company made a capo very similar and it went out of business several years ago. This one holds the strings in place, and keeps a great tone. I would recommend this capo to anyone .

                  Best alternative to the removable capo. I like it because it stays on the neck and you adjust the tension rather than a clamp on style. This is what I grew up with as a "blugrass" capo.

                      I've always hated capos. They are generally bulky, a pain to use and don't always stay in place. Not this one. It is small and easy to use. It doesn't distract from the look of the guitar and once placed stays in place. I can keep it right above the nut and slip it in place in seconds.

                      I've played guitar obsessively for twelve years now, have used a bunch of capos, and I like this one best of all. The Shubb is great, too - but when you remove it, there you are, holding it, about to put it somewhere you hope you'll remember... not so with this one. Stays behind the nut and, unlike the old gigantic Hamilton "screw" capos, this one doesn't bend the strings out of tune. This baby has been *engineered* to apply pressure less "arbitrarily" than the older screw-type capos. There's a few "high-precision" capos out there costing $100 or more, but they work the same way as this one, practically. The Paige IS high-precision! By the way, this is not a classical guitar capo - it's for radiused fingerboards - curved, that is. Even if it were wide enough for a classical, it wouldn't work. Those fingerboards are flat; the strings in the middle would buzz. If your music store clerk tells you it's for any guitar, s/he should brush up on his/her knowledge of the merchandise. Don't blame the capo as being bad - blame your ignorant clerk!

                      Have used this capo for years. It is the most solid capo on the market. Have used many other capos and they lose there spring and will buzz especially around the first and second frets. This is a monster. Doesn't fit on all guitars, but you should know the neck size of your guitar. Buy this capo. You won't regret it.

                      The Paige capos are pretty well designed, and do what you want a capo to do. All capos, regardless of whether you spend a lot or a little, get a cloth one or the newest design, will do the job. You just have to learn how to best use it. The Paige is a little obtrusive on the back side of the neck, but less than most others, and is fairly quick to set up. If you want something very quick get a Kyser.The Paige is used by many, and abused by many as well. While many tout claims to be able to store it behind the nut when not in use, this is really ridiculous. Take it off and put it in your pocket. It CAN be tightened too tight, damaging your instrument, so just tighten enough to achieve your need and no more.I have a dozen capos probably, accumulated in 40 years of guitar playing. The Paige for acoustics is pretty good, not so much for electrics, 12-strings, and certainly not for banjos. If you play banjo get a Shubb.

                        Other than a McKinney, Paige makes this style of capo as well or better than any other brand on the market especially at such a reasonable price. There is one or more in all of my guitar and banjo cases.

                        Good idea but definitely has limitations.

                        6 string capo: Does not work above 6th or 7th fret depending on your guitars neck size. Also if you use a guitar strap connect above the nut like I do you have to take the capo completely off after use (versus leaving it clapped above the nut as recommended by the manufacturer). Disengaging the cape with the tiny little "U" hook is not that easy either. Does work great when properly fitted and connected though. Personally speaking I think this is a work in progress as I still require the use of my Shubb or Kyser. Now that's 2 capo's I carry for the 6. The same is true for my 12.

                          This is the best type of capo made. It's slim line makes it easier to note on the fret board. I can hold chord positions with it better than most capos. Where you can twist it on and off, it holds the strings down on the fret board more better and gives it a cleaner sound. I've used many different brands and types of capos over the years and I feel this is the best "Cheater" on the market. It does a great job.

                            it is easy to control the tension, stores nicely above the nut when not needed. again, for the money it's worth it.

                            It is great to have the ability to set the capo behind the nut when you aren't using it BUT I use wall mounts in my home/studio situation and it can't be used on the wall.
