Oh, Glad to see you dan !
I just grabbed it and play very smoothly for a while after I got it and walked to an unoccupied area by the street. But it occured to me that this fella had a so called "baseball bat" neck, stopped, looked, felt it,,,WooooooooW, it did ! ...It turned out to be that I just forgot it...hahaha I have a medium sized hand.

Actually it's thicker than that of my 1944, cause I can use Paige capo on 1944 but not on it.

Thank you dan.
I just bought a Shubb vintage capo from JT's recommendation link. It works well on 1942 J-45 reissue except that it's far heavier than Paige.
