Solid stainless steel. For 12-String Guitar or any steel string guitar with a wide neck.

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. Made of solid stainless steel to resist wear and nicks, this capo will look as beautiful years from now as it does today.

Deluxe Capo S3

$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 12-String Guitar

 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.

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!
