Thread Name: Fifth string capo
Subject: RE: Fifth string capo
MARINER - Make your own !! The Factory jobbies dont work upside down or back to front , so get some thin metal strip ( A heavy Duty Carton Staple works) , bend to fit round the neck in TWO pieces with an elastic band as tensioner ! About a qarter inch is enough to fret the fifth string , and just enough at the other end to hold it in place !
I am away from home at the moment , but have a diagram I can E mail when I get back to U K ! PM me your E mail address and I will send it off !!
