Paua is the Maori (native New Zealand) name for a species of abalone whose shells are the most beautiful and colorful. Luthiers often use Paua shell for the inlays on their most special guitars. Fine jewelry crafted from the shells are known as Paua Pearls.
When we came up with this new finish, its dazzling iridescence reminded us of paoa pearls, and so that became its name. It uses the same durable titanium process as our other Capo Royale models, so its color-shifting beauty will last practically forever. And like the Paua shell itself, no two are exactly alike. Randomly occurring color patterns mean that no one else’s Paua Pearl capo will look exactly like yours!
- The model C2p is for NYLON STRING guitar — flat fretboard, 2.25? wide.
