Why did they stop selling them?
You'd have to ask Anders Sterner why he stopped selling them, but since most of my guitars aren't round, I wouldn't use one. There were too many people whose guitar necks weren't round and who were getting indentations bitten into their instruments' from the spring steel "strap."
This was Sterner's response to this:
For the record, no capo I use has been acknowledged as having damaged a neck, and I plan to keep it that way.
Whatever you decide to pursue and use on your own guitars, good luck!
I remember e-mailing him about this exact thing. I think that's why I never ordered one, but I was in love with the minimalist design that wouldn't get in the way so much.
I've since dropped using a capo altogether, which gives me the maximum amount of freedom. Victor capos were my favorite, though
before Dunlop bought them out.
