So maybe I wasn't paying attention, but my Shubb F5 capo, which I love, only let's me capo to B flat on my Nechville. Now as I scan through posts here I discover that this wasn't a big secret! So I guess I'm looking for a yoke-style radiused capo that's just a wee-bit wider. Suggestions welcomed.

Paige Capos makes a C capo, which can fit past the fourth fret on a standard 5 string. It is quite wide, and would probably work well for your Nechville. I'm not sure if you can order it with a radius though.

I use a Paige D on my Goldtone BC 350+. This jo has a wide neck. But as we know it only goes up to the 4th fret. For the 5th and above I use a Shubb 'C'. It works well.

Paige makes a wide capo with a radius. Elderly Instruments has them in stock. Other suppliers may have them as well.

Elliott capos will make one to fit your Phantom. The Banjo Store carries them.
