For example, there are Shubb Capos for Steel String Guitar which fits most acoustic and electric guitars; the Shubb Capos for Nylon String Guitar are designed for guitar with wide flat fretboard, etc. Furthermore, each model is available in different styles, namely Original (nickel plated or plain, unplated brass), Capo Noir (black chrome) and Deluxe (stainless steel with improved roller design on the lever) .
