I bought this capo for my girlfriend for her guitar, She play a western guitar with a thick neck. Altough the capo is solid it fits the guitar very well. We have already ordered two other non metal capo, but they broke after a few month. This was the first solid capo we testet. We are very happy with this capo. We use this capo for 3 years now! Still in perfect shape and the pressure to the neck is still strong and pulls down the strings very nicely. My girl ordered a second one for her electric and the capo works fine for the electric also. We feared that the metal could damage the neck, but after 3 years of use we couldn't notice any damages. We both attest this poducts five stars and could not image a better capo.
