Which capo for Casino ?


Recommended Posts

So many different ones ????

Now I'm confused. Does it have to be for electric guitar or can the acoustic one be used ?

I use my Kyser primarily on my acoustics & acoustic/elec's. I rarely use a capo on an electric, so yeah, the Kyser will work on either.

This is why I like the G7th over the Kyser:

Very little to get in the way and it quick releases, no springs, no screws on this model. The one I have for my 12 string does have a screw, but it's a lot less intrusive than the Shubb.

 

Both guitars are Casinos, the G7th is on my Elitist and the Kyser is on my 2005 MIK.

One point regardless of brand:

 

Some are designed more specifically for shorter fretboard radius (more curve between high and low strings) and some for flatter fingerboards.

 

Check on that. Epis and Gibsons tend to have much flatter fingerboards than, for example, Fenders and their clones.

Also remember 6 and 12 string widths. I bought a Dunlop for 12 string about 20 years ago by mistake. I don't own a 12 string but I used it anyway with no complaints. One thing I do like is that the grips are on the back and out of sight.I also like that I can get to it easily with my left hand, more convenient for me. Had a Shubb but didn't like having to screw it down.

Yup to a bit wider for the 12-string. Ditto some differences for classical guitar fingerboards and/or nylon strings.

 

I'm at the point where I'm unsure which of my Kysers were purchased for 12 and which for 6. With my "Gib-Epi" type fingerboards it makes little difference.

 

OTOH, for my first-issue Ovation "Country Artist" AE nylon string from the early '70s, I still use the first capo I'd ever purchased, a rosewood classical guitar type that's now past age 50 and still works fine.
