Sawmill Music, a Boston based startup company, is gearing up for the production of a new line of guitar capos. Designed for guitarists who want a capo that is as visually appealing as it is effective, the Sawmill Capo is set to be the first wooden guitar capo with modern day functionality.
The patent pending design is offered in one of four species of hardwood varying in shade from bright white maple to deep red rosewood. Select models include a beautiful diamond-shaped Mother of Pearl inlay and for those interested in customization, Sawmill will be offering personalized laser etching and custom inlay design.
The Sawmill Capo is also intended to be gentle on both the guitar and the musician. The ergonomic geometry keeps the guitarist’s wrist in a comfortable position for easy key changes. Additionally, a series of rubber pads keep the capo from damaging the neck of the guitar while ensuring a good grip for the guitarist. Together, the wooden aesthetics and improved user experience combine to form a capo unlike anything currently on the market.
The project has been launched on Kickstarter (a crowd-funding platform) in order to raise capital for the initial production run of Sawmill Capos. Pre-orders are available now and can be placed through the link below:
