Solid stainless steel, to resist wear and nicks. For steel string guitar, fits most acoustics and electrics.

Many people thought that the original Shubb Capo could not be improved. But in 1998 we introduced the Shubb Deluxe, which marked an upgrade in material, design, ergonomics, and geometry. Its design remains unchanged since its introduction.

Deluxe Capo S1

$29.95

When the Shubb Capo was first introduced in 1980, capos were elevated to a whole new level. In 1998 the Shubb Deluxe pushed the envelope again. Many people thought that the original Shubb could not be improved, but with the Deluxe we introduced upgrades in materials, design, geometry and ergonomics. It became the flagship product of our line.

 

For Steel String Guitar

  Our model 1 capos — “for Steel String Guitar” — fit almost all steel string guitars, acoustic or electric. The model 1 capo is available in these various styles:

 

 

Unless your steel string has an unusually shaped or oversized neck, any of the model 1 capos listed above is for you. Some exceptions:

•  If your steel string guitar’s neck is wider than most, it might require our model 3.

•  If your steel string guitar’s neck is thicker than most, it might require our model S3v, specially designed for the thick necks on some vintage guitars.

•  If  your vintage Fender has the more extreme radius of 7.25″, then it should use our model 4.

FRETBOARD RADIUS

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!
