New Gear Review: On-Stage Gear GA300 Classical Guitar Capo


The GA300 joins the GA100 guitar and GA200 ukulele capos with its quick-squeeze trigger design that allows musicians to play open strings and chords in whatever key they want. The GA300 features an elongated handle that fits comfortably in the player’s hand and, by way of a simply squeeze, is removed and/or repositioned nearly instantly.

Classical guitar players can relocate the capo mid-measure for key changes with no problem at all—a move not really possible with thumb or screw-style capos. The lightweight and durable GA300 is constructed from zinc alloy and offers a scratch-resistant anodized finish. Silicone padding offers true string pressure that will not scratch your guitar yet gently applies pressure to nylon strings found on most classical guitars.

The GA300 Guitar Capo provides ample coverage for 6 and 12 string guitars.
It is available in a black finish and is priced at $23.99 MSRP.
