G7TH Newport Partial 5 String Guitar Capo #5 – Silver
1 in stock
Designed to capo 5 strings of your 6 string acoustic or electric guitar.
Extend your bass, without the need for lengthy retuning afterwards!
Fast, easy open tuning without retuning!
The Newport Partial #5 is a cut capo in the Newport Series combining traditional flip lever action, with a low-profile and classic G7th design.
This quick-release partial capo clamps 5 strings for a drop-D style effect. Then simply flip the lever to release and you’re instantly back in standard tuning!
The Newport’s low profile doesn’t interfere with your fretting hand, while its fine tune adjustment dramatically reduces tuning problems.
As on all G7th capos, the inert silicone wrap around rubber and internal G7th design features eliminate deadening of tone and avoid dangerous metal to wood contact on your guitar neck.

Why would I buy the G7th Newport?
Safeguards your Tone & protects your neck
Wrap-around silicone rubber and internal bar features eliminate deadening of tone and avoid metal to wood contact on your guitar neck.
Faster and easier to use.
Easily fine-tune capo tension – in place on your guitar neck.
Lighter weight and lower profile
Low profile design keeps the Newport capo out of the way of your fretting hand.
The Newport capo’s flip lever design suits players who prefer to dial in the tension of their capo with an adjusting knob. It is particularly suited to instruments that are problematic to use with a capo, such as guitars with a high action and 12 string guitars.
New Compensated String Pad for 12 strings
Our Compensated String Pad allows you to fret all 12 strings at the same time and with the same tension by compensating for the different gauges of strings using carefully designed ridges in the string pad’s rubber.
