The McKinney-Elliott Banjo 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. Padded with genuine leather, the saddle seat protects your instrument’s finish.
