Perhaps we're talking about different capos - PW makes many models. The one I'm referring to is http://www.amazon.com/Planet-Waves-Classical-Guitar-Black/dp/B000OZ981I

...


That's the one I was meaning ... Of course, on the backside a Dunlop or a traditional cejilla is less obstructive. On the front side a cejilla is certainly more obstructive, and Dunlop more or less the same (lower but wider).

Actually the neck is perfect, the capo's relief just does not fit it very well due to the new roller ball system. I think if I got one without the rollerball it would work better.

You are ALL mistaken... This is by far the best capo.

The Big Lebowski uses it, and we all know he's bad...

Cheers!

RE: Beware the Shubb Classical Capo ... (in reply to Leñador

I can't stand capos with too much crap sticking out the back - I use the Shubb classical and it works like a charm, not sure if mine is a slightly different model or what.

There was a nice guy on here selling homemade cejillas a while back, I think his name was Tony. Someone else might remember his username. I had one and liked it, but the Shubb was just less fussy to work with. I do agree with Riconde that a traditional cejilla has a much higher cool factor

RE: Beware the Shubb Classical Capo ... (in reply to Ricardo

I have a roller shubb and the older one without the roller, they work fine on my guitars and are less likely to rub the finish off than a Jim Dunlop type.

quote:

ORIGINAL: Ricardo

traditional wood with peg cejilla is the best because they look by far the coolest. I always have two on hand in case the string breaks during a show. I find some of these modern alien space age capos offensive.


I am interested in a cejilla: as they don't angle back away from the fret on the 6th string, do they inhibit left hand movement at all?

RE: Beware the Shubb Classical Capo ... (in reply to wiking

Anybody use these?
Curious to find any reviews or thoughts ...
Seem bulky at the back but look practical
I like either traditional wooden or the Dunlop
But awkward changing positions particularly with the dpa 4099 clip on microphone

Lenador, Doesn't that metal buckle tend to scratch the neck?
