      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.

                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:

                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.

                  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.
