Product Description


G7th G7P3BK Performance 3 Steel String Capo - Black

The Performance 3 is the culmination of years of designing, tweaking, and improving - but most importantly, listening to guitarists and their views on what a capo SHOULD do. The Unique Tension Control system with the revolutionary ART string pad mechanism gives a near-perfect capo experience. The Adaptive Radius Technology system within the top bar of G7th Performance 3 capos adapts to the true curvature over your strings and fretboard, exerting completely even pressure across all the strings - setting a new standard of in-tune, buzz-free use. It gives you the maximum tuning stability with the minimum possible tension in EVERY position, on ANY guitar neck.

Unique Tension Control By simply squeezing to attach and squeezing to release, the Performance 3 capo gives you complete and intuitive control over the pressure you place on your strings. Whether it's an acoustic or an electric, you can have confidence that you are in control and will keep your guitar in tune.

Easy to use and designed for one-handed use. With a little practice it's nearly as quick to move between frets as a spring capo, but without the need for frequent retuning. Versatile Stores easily behind the nut for quick and easy access, or on the headstock. Perfect for any steel six-string acoustic, electric or hybrid nylon string guitars.

Excellent capo, and all-round great buying experie

By: on 7 June 2022
I'd only had basic plastic capos in the past, and considered just incrementally upgrading to a metal version of the same spring-operated type. But then by chance a few weeks back I tried a friend's G7th and realised right away that I'd always be comparing other capos to this. It really is a benchmark product, the quality and performance is outstanding. I think the much higher price is justified on the basis of build quality and robustness alone, even if you were to overlook the superior acoustics -- it feels like it could last a lifetime (though I imagine the rubber could wear out eventually), so when you factor in having to replace cheaper ones it could end up saving you money long term anyway.

G7 capo

Expensive for a capo sure but....just buying my second as I have two "good" guitars (as far as my price range goes) and after having used the G7 that I have I never use the other el-cheapo capos anymore. So easy to put on, move up and down the neck and it doesn't squeeze the crap out of your strings making retuning after capo use far less of a regular event. Especially good for my old acoustic where putting on a cheap "squeeze" capo is a gym workout in itself whereas the G7 is easy as to put on. Recommend if you can afford it. Would add have dealt with Artists Guitars before and highly recommend re customer service.

I ordered a quality capo which arrived in 3 days. Product was in original packaging and exactly as ordered. I will certainly be buying from Artist Guitars in the future as the website and ordering is also very easy and quick.

Excellent capo

This is a really good capo! It costs a lot more than you might think, but it's worth it. It functions perfectly with zero buzz on a range of neck profiles - v-neck, flat, and rounded. Service and delivery from Artist Guitars was great to match. Highly recommended.

Great Capo

Having several guitars, with various neck radius the G7th was an instant improvement on all previous capos.
