Elliott McKinney 1 3/4" Classic Stainless Steel Guitar Capo

Monthly payments available Learn more

 This is a beautiful recreation of the very first high end capo I ever remember seeing.  It belonged to a Mr. Tony Rice, perhaps you’ve heard of him.  Capos just don’t get any nicer than what Elliott makes.    

Returning to the early generation of the McKinney Capo, the McKinney-Elliott Classic model brings back the capo of years past. Coming out of the "forked" saddle era, the Classic mirrors the first "tang/guide" style capo, born in 1981 from Tom McKinney.  The Classic frame is .025 narrower and .015 thinner than our standard frame specifications. The Classic frame is non-contoured and features an 8/32 screw. 

The McKinney-Elliott Guitar Capo continues a time-honored tradition of high quality capo manufacturing. It is hand-crafted from stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish. The unique saddle utilizes a frame guide and tang, designed to keep the capo aligned over the fret board. The saddle is padded with genuine leather to protect your instrument’s finish.

The McKinney-Elliott Guitar Capo is based on the original design by Tom McKinney. The McKinney guitar capo by Elliott Capos features the McKinney style saddle and bail latch top bar design. Elliott Capos is the only authorized manufacturer of the McKinney guitar capo. This relationship has been in place since 2005.
