G7th Capos Updates the Heritage Series

The new capos feature Adaptive Radius Technology.

Peterborough, UK (February 15, 2018) -- Following its launch in 2016, G7th The Capo Company have released updated versions of their yoke-style Heritage guitar capos, including their ground-breaking Adaptive Radius Technology (ART).

On top of a few technical changes, such as making the adjustment knob shorter so it can be left behind the nut in a guitar case, the ART found in the Heritage has been finely honed to perfection.

“We’ve worked through various iterations of the ART design, but we’re absolutely delighted with where we are now. It’s so much more convenient than having to remember which capo matches which guitar radius, or messing around with changing inserts. You get convenience and the maximum tuning stability using the minimum tension necessary, all in a stunningly beautiful and lightweight capo!” Noel Sheehan, G7th Managing Director

All Heritage capos have several engraved options available, including stunning Acanthus leaf designs and customized text. Prices from $139, including bespoke branded leather pouch and cleaning cloth, all supplied in a presentation case.

In addition, the two guitar models (standard and wide widths) are also now available in 18kt Gold finish in extremely limited numbers, and exclusively from the G7th Custom Shop.

Gain is fun in all its forms, from overdrive to fuzz, but let’s talk about a great clean tone.


We’re all here for one thing. It’s the singular sound and magic of the stringed instrument called the guitar—and its various offshoots, including the bass. Okay, so maybe it’s more than one thing, but the sentiment remains. Even as I write this, my thoughts fan out and recognize how many incarnations of “guitar” there must be. It’s almost incomprehensible. Gut-string, nylon-string, steel-string, 12-string, 8-string, 10-string, flatwound, brown sound, fuzztone…. It’s almost impossible to catalog completely, so I’ll stop here and let you add your favorites. Still, there’s one thing that I keep coming back to: clean tone.

A supreme shredder’s signature 6-string dazzles with versatility.

This immaculately built guitar sounds great and can do it all.

The more affordable price is still out of reach for many guitarists

Charvel’s first Guthrie Govan signature model was released in 2014, after an arduous two-year effort to get the design just right. Since then, the guitar—now in its second edition—has become one of Charvel’s most coveted models. Unfortunately, its $3,699 price keeps the U.S.-made axe out of reach for many.

This year, though, the company released the Made-in-Japan signature MJ San Dimas SD24 CM, which sells for a slightly more manageable $2,799. Needless to say, that’s not cheap. But depending on your priorities, it’s a fair price for a very high quality, pro-level instrument.
