The range of capos come in four “Classic Colours”: Surf Greene, Butterscotch Blonde, Daphne Blue and Olympic White. They also feature a 9.5-inch radius for compatibility with most Fender guitars, as well as many other fretboards. The colours have been matched with “state-of-the-art photospectrometry,” and shade comparisons with several vintage and new Fender guitars.
Fender’s Richard Bussey said of the collaboration: “Fender is excited to partner with Kyser, joining two classic American brands rooted in musical traditions to help players jam and write songs with more ease.
“With an all-new radius redesign specifically engineered for Fender fretboards, the Classic Color Collection represents the proud lineages and bright futures of these brands”
Kyser’s owner and president Meredith Attebery added: “We felt this series would bring us back to the roots and classic colours that have been highly admired and embraced by musicians for so many years. We aim to continue to achieve Kyser quality, as well as industry collaboration and community, through this series and all of our products.”
Previously, Kyser and Fender have teamed up for the Fender Red capo in 2013 and a silver capo celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster in 2014.
