Returning to the early generation of the McKinney Capo, the McKinney-Elliott Classic model brings back the capo of years past. Coming out of the "forked" saddle era, the Classic mirrors the first "tang/guide" style capo, born in 1981 from Tom McKinney.  The Classic frame is .025 narrower and .015 thinner than our standard frame specifications. These dimensions are the same as the JD Crowe model we currently craft, as well as the legendary guitar capos we crafted in recent past. The Classic frame is non-contoured and features an 8/32 screw. 

The McKinney-Elliott Guitar Capo continues a time-honored tradition of high quality capo manufacturing. It is hand-crafted from stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish. The unique saddle utilizes a frame guide and tang, designed to keep the capo aligned over the fret board. The saddle is padded with genuine leather to protect your instrument’s finish.

History of the McKinney Guitar Capo by Elliott Capos


The McKinney-Elliott Guitar Capo is based on the original design by Tom McKinney. The McKinney guitar capo by Elliott Capos features the McKinney style saddle and bail latch top bar design. Elliott Capos is the only authorized manufacturer of the McKinney guitar capo. This relationship has been in place since 2005.


“After 32 years of development and design, the McKinney Capo is in the very capable hands of Phill Elliott, and is now the McKinney-Elliott capo, and I look forward to a long partnership with Phill, who makes the best capo in the world!” –Tom McKinney

Item Reviews
Amazing capo! Love it!!!
I'm been very impressed with the Classic capo! It's easy to move, fits my guitar neck perfectly, rests snugly up at the nut when I'm not using it, presses all 6 strings down evenly, doesn't buzz, and holds the tuning amazingly well. I hardly ever have to tune again after changing keys. After using many cheaper capos over the years, I was blown away by the quality of this one! You get what you pay for; it's worth every cent! I highly recommend this to all guitarists, bluegrass players especially!
