      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.

      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.

          This is a great capo small and can be put back off the fret so one's hand doesn't hit the capo when play next to it..I recommend highly.

            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.

            Comments about Paige 6-String Guitar Capo:

            I play mostly acoustic guitar and having a dependable capo is a must for me in live performances and in practice. My experience with other capos such as spring-clamp capos and elastic wrap have not been great. Both have a tendency to wear out in about a year or two of dedicated practice and play; the springs grow weak and eventually break, and the elastic bands lose their tautness. I've been addicted to this Paige capo ever since I got it in. It's insanely effective in ELIMINATING buzzing and muting by distributing the desired pressure across the entire fret board. The frame having been made of metal is very well made. Though it takes a tad bit longer to apply to your guitar than your standard quick-change capo, it exceeds any other in performance. It has a very slim design that makes it easy to work around and hide away at the nut when not in use. This is a smart investment for anyone who wants to use capos to explore new possibilities with their guitar.

              Comments about Paige 6-String Guitar Capo:

              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.

                This is an excellent Capo to use if your having problems with notes going sharp. The pressure adjustment is very sensitive and even. It's not clumsy either. However, I find the metal clip annoying. I still prefer the heavy duty spring loaded capo's when not having problems. I use this capo when I need the notes to be more precise up the fret board. It's also not bulky.
