Choose your 12 string capo

12 string guitars are notoriously difficult to capo. The standard approach for capo makers has been to apply masses of tension, which inevitably pulls the bass strings sharp. Now, G7th can bring you a solution that doesn't simply rely on brute force - this is our Compensated String Pad, available on the Newport and Heritage capo models.

The Compensated String Pad

Free Lifetime Warranty

Like a compensated saddle on an acoustic guitar, the patent-pending Compensated String Pad takes into account the different gauges between the bass and octave strings, compensating for them with the ridges in the rubber over the fingerboard.

This means all 12 strings are fretted at the SAME TIME and under the SAME TENSION, so you won't pull any out of tune!

Suitable for both acoustic and electric 12 string guitars*.

*Not suitable for Rickenbacker 12 string guitars due to the reversed octave string positions.
