In case anyone is wondering whether to buy the Fretpaw Capo, I say DO IT!
Got mine last week and so far that thing is spot on ,tuning wise. I love it. its almost like theres no capo, that the neck is just shorter . that's how clear it sounds. Im not a spokesman for Fretpaw. Just a very happy customer. True, its not streamlined looking and you cant keep it behind the nut ,but who cares? Its the most accurate capo I myself have used on my banjo. Im probably gonna get one for my guitar next.

Is Al Ferguson still making these?  I heard that he had health problems a while back and might sell the business.

I heard the same thing that Bob heard. I tried to buy a brand new Fret Paw in December and received an email from him stating that he was unable to make any more at the current time and that somebody else may Start making them but that he was no longer able to. There were none available for me to buy new.I bought a used one off of someone here on the hang out and it works great for me also. I do recommend the Fret Paw.
