AAA Grade Hawaiian Koa

Our new super curly koa is a master grade Hawaiian Koa that was salvaged from the slopes of Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Amazing flames and figuring!  Just wow is all we can say!

All Hawaiian Koa products made by Thalia come with our Hawaiian Koa Reforestation Commitment.  $5 from the sale of each Capo or Phone Case goes directly towards planting and maintaining new Koa trees in Hawaii.

We offer this koa in three different stained colors:  Vintage Blonde, Kentucky Bourbon & Kona Coffee

By staining this amazing curly koa, we are creating close matches to other woods found in fine guitars.  Blonde is our match for vintage maple and Kona Coffee was stained to match Indian Rosewood.  We hope you choose our curly koa and help us in our sustainability mission.


When sunlight or any direct lighting source hits this curly koa it glows. Shown from left to right: Kona Coffee, Kentucky Bourbon, & Vintage Blonde.


Without any direct light this Curly Koa takes on a darker appearance.  Shown from left to right: Kona Coffee, Kentucky Bourbon, & Vintage Blonde.


Sometimes video is the only way to see the true magic of this wood.  Here it is in all of its glory.

Function Meets Beauty

The Mexican Greenheart capo complements the abalone fret markers beautifully. With the 16" radius insert it's like a custom fit capo for my guitar.

The Custom Fit is Great

The Indian Rosewood capo has very nice perhaps understated look that matches the theme of my 15M series Martin, while providing a contrasting wood appearance. What makes the Thalia capos the best are the included inserts to match the radius of various fingerboards, which provides essentially a custom fit.

Perfection at last!

Five stars without hesitation. Every great thing I read about Thalia capos is true. I've been waiting for over 50 years for a capo that wouldn't require me to retune my guitar every time it's moved. My Martin sounds sweet capoed at any fret now. And as if that wasn't enough, it looks stunning! I'll NEVER go back to a generic capo again. Chris, your young daughter is a genius. Thank you!!!!

Electric Blue!

This capo is just as awesome as all Thalia capos. The color really is electric blue. You can see it in the attached photos.

Birthday Gift

While looking for a guitar related gift for my brother I found the Thalia web site. I settled on the Indian Rosewood & Cross Capo which I sent to my brother for his birthday. He loves it. He is very active in his church and plays his guitar there frequently. I've enclosed a picture he sent me.

Fretboard Radius Guide By Guitar Make & Model

To achieve a perfect fit, the Thalia Capo comes with multiple interchangable fretpads so that you can match the fretboard radius of your specific instrument. The following table lists common fretboard radii used by major manufacturer.  If you do not find your specific brand and model below you can Google your guitar make/model plus the words "fretboard radius"; if that doesn't work you can use the manual method which is described here 

Please Note:  12-String & 8-String Guitars should use our High Tension OctaveTouch fretpads to get the best performance.  Standard Tension and High Tension Rubber fretpads are included with every capo.  Our Teflon fretpads will likely not work on instruments with octave strings. size chart guide fret board
