Our capos also come with a Free Lifetime Warranty, so if one develops a manufacturing fault or failure we will replace it free of charge, anywhere in the world. Simply contact us and we'll give the instructions for our replacement procedure.

If you've ever wondered why there are no cheap copies of the Performance capos, it's because the clutch is extremely difficult to manufacture and no one has managed to replicate it! That speaks to the level of quality consistently produced there.

My guitar has a nitrocellulose finish. Is my G7th capo safe to use on it?

A nitrocellulose finish should be a pretty durable one. However, the danger occurs when it is exposed to additives or release agents which can be used in the processing of rubber components - these can soften and mark the finish.

We use high-quality silicone rubber on our capos and the components are cleaned before use. We would not expect you to have any problem with the rubber components used on our capos but would recommend that you don’t leave the capo on the guitar when you aren’t using it. This isn’t good for the capo either!
