Good for the price – Stainless Steel Guitar Capo for 6-String Guitar Reviews

Pros:
It's a good capo. It does its job like its supposed to. It's easy to move around. I haven't noticed any wear on the rubber yet, but then again, I've only had it for a couple of weeks.
Cons:
When I open it, the hinge kind of squeaks a little bit, but it's not really a big deal, considering that it's quiet, and you usually don't need to change the capo mid song in performance. Also, when it arrived, the paint had chipped while in packaging. Again, not really a big deal, as it doesn't impair the function of the capo.
Other:
Your guitar is probably not the same as mine. But the gold matches the frets on my acoustic pretty perfectly. It's actually more of a dull light bronze color.
Bottomline:
At a third of the price of a similar capo at a music store, and the same functionality, who cares about a little squeak and some chipped paint? If you need a quick change capo, this is a great buy.
