7 String Capos

Anyone know of any? I have a 7 string acoustic and would like a capo...

I've google'd but to no avail, so can anyone point me in the right direction?

Re: 7 String Capos

A capo for classical guitars will probably cover it, the fingerboard on a classical guitar is much wider than a standard electric or acoustic.

Re: 7 String Capos

Perhaps a 12-string capo would do?

Re: 7 String Capos

Aren't 12 string necks just exactly the same shape as the 6 string versions?

Thanks for the suggestions so far chaps.

I've been using a G7th capo for a few years now. It fits all my 7s.
