Our model 3 capos — “for 12-String Guitar” — are 2.25″ wide and curved. Not strictly for 12-strings, they fit any steel string guitars with wide fretboards. The model 3 capo is available in these various styles:
• If your steel string guitar’s neck is thicker (deeper) than most, it might require our model S3v, specially designed for the thick necks on some vintage guitars.
Almost all steel string guitars have a radiused fretboard. There may be an occasional steel string with a flat fretboard, but they are rare; perhaps on custom built instruments. For these rare instruments, our model 2 (“for Nylon String guitar”) is the right choice.
While the radii on steel string guitar fretboards are not all identical, they are well within the Shubb Capo’s range for a good fit. This is because its proprietary sleeve material is engineered to be ultra resilient; it conforms to the fretboard’s shape, while cushioning and pushing back on the strings … just like your finger does!
