Tastefully decorated with durable enamel, Rosette is reminiscent of patterns favored by luthiers on their finest custom guitars, and it sports a tiger’s eye inlay.


Rosette C1z


Rosette’s tasteful design calls to mind patterns favored by luthiers on their finest custom guitars. This capo exudes elegance and sophistication and you can rest assured the durable enamel patterns will last a lifetime. The crowning jewel of Rosette is its tiger’s eye gemstone inlay on the thumbscrew. Traditionally tiger’s eye was carried as a protective amulet to ward off curses—in this case it’ll ward off intonation issues. Elevate your playing experience and pay homage to Shubb’s legacy with Rosette.

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 6-string, steel string guitar’s neck is wider than most, it might require our model 3.  (12-string) capo.

•  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.

If you discover that you have gotten the wrong model, we’ll swap with you for the right one. We provide an exchange form for convenience, but it is not required.


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!
