Will Faust demos the Sawmill Capo
Watch Will Faust play an awesome cover of House of the Rising Sun and an original song with the Zebrawood Sawmill Capo. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for more demos and Will's thoughts on the capo!
Wood is good.
The Sawmill Capo is the first capo with a solid hardwood exterior, just like your guitar. No veneers, no plastic. We wanted to create a capo as beautiful as the guitar itself.
The Sawmill Capo's patent pending design eliminates the need for the large springs and hinges normally used in capos. The novel mechanism allows our capo to be slim in all the right places.
Spend more time playing and less time changing keys. It only takes one hand to move, so mid-song changes are quick and easy.
Keep your wrist happy. The Sawmill Capo's motion is more like a handshake instead of a death grip.
If at any point you are unhappy with the Sawmill Capo just send it back and we'll either get you a replacement or a refund. No questions asked.
About this time last year, we launched a Kickstarter for a previous version of the Sawmill Capo that fell short of our funding goal. We're back this year with a totally new design based on feedback from our initial backers. It's stronger, slimmer, and more beautiful than the last version and we can't wait to get it into your hands.
The design is finished, the prototypes are built, and all of the quotes are in. We've already completed as much of the project as humanly possible to make sure we get a quality product into our backers hands quickly. All that remains is to place the order for the first production run, check for quality, and ship them out to our backers.

Risks and challenges
With any project there are bound to be challenges and but we've done everything we can to eliminate risk for our backers. The first and most important challenge is making sure that the product itself will be strong and reliable. At Sawmill Music our specialty is mechanical design and we have years of experience spanning fields from consumer goods to biomedical devices. We've designed a variety of products that are currently built by the thousands and we will work our hardest to make sure the Sawmill Capo is another successful design.
Managing production is another challenge when dealing with a large scale product. For the Sawmill Capo, we are working with a variety of vendors that have already proven successful for us in the past. Our existing relationship with these vendors allows us to set clear manufacturing expectations and make sure that they are met. In any production situation there are bound to be a few hiccups, but we have the engineering experience to work through the issues and make sure the end product is a success.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
