Thread Name: 5th String Capo
Subject: 5th String Capo
Well, I did it. I bit the bullet today and ordered a 5th string capo for my Vega longneck.

I've been queazy about doing anything so permanent to it, cuting, driling, etc ... so instead I've been twisting that 5th string up and down into keys it ought not to go (Bflat, even C, once or twice). But I'm tired of having sigificant retuning efforts, every time I twist that sucker up to B flat - and down to F.

Any experience with installing the 5th string capo? Any comments about using 'em?

Anyone want to commiserate about "a banjo tuner's work is never done?"
