    anyone know of a decent one (to be used on my tele) that will hold firm but not mess up the back of the neck? thanks!

    Dunlap made some inexpensive ones with an adjustable nylon stap that work O.K. but my favorite is made by Planet Waves. I paid $15 dollars for it at a guitar show and it is the one I use all the time and it won't mess up your guitars neck.

    Planet Waves NS capo. Anywhere from $11-14. I own two, one for my electrics and another for my acoustic.

    the kyser has always been my goto, i have 3 6 string and a 12 string one....never done any damage to my guitars.

    I've used the nylon strap ones, and they suck to get pressed down evenly, and other's just haven't lasted as long as my kyser's have.

    Planet Waves are fine-in fact any adjustable tension capo will do the job. I don't like the Kyser 'Death Grip' model at all. They squeeze light gauge strings out of tune, and have a nasty habit of jumping out of your hand.

    I use G7th and Shubb.

    I went through a phase where I bought every Capo I could find. Planet Waves (multiple models) won hands down. The NS is a great choice.

    Lately I've been reaching for the Shubb most often, but for low impact on the guitar/strings, I always felt the Bird of Paradise did that best: http://www.birdcapo.com/home.html
