As Kyser celebrates its 40th Anniversary, the Canton, Texas-based company looks to the future by unveiling the Meredith Signature Quick-Change Acoustic Guitar Capo – a custom signature capo for its owner and president Meredith McClung-Attebery.

The Meredith Signature capo is built in time-honored Kyser (opens in new tab) fashion – by hand in East Texas. Kyser engineers each capo from a top-quality aluminum extrusion body, using the same drilling machine developed by its founder, Milton Kyser. A minimum of 14 people work on each unit. This focus on craft and attention to detail is one of the reasons why Kyser has built a formidable reputation for quality.

Finished in Candy Teal and stamped with McClung-Attebery’s signature in silver, the Meredith Signature capo features a low-tension spring for a lighter grip that’ll help maintain tuning stability and complement contemporary low-action setups. 

Only 2,020 units will be made, each issued with a certificate of authenticity hand-signed by the women of Kyser who lead the handcrafting process.

One thing I have learned about being a female in the music industry is that we have to work twice as hard as a man

The capo is typically innovative, tooled for today’s guitar player. But Kyser has grander ambitions for its 40th Anniversary, believing that, in honoring McClung-Attebery’s nigh-on decade of leadership, it sends a powerful message to the music industry that it can do more to promote inclusivity and equality in the workplace

“One thing I have learned about being a female in the music industry is that we have to work twice as hard as a man,” says McClung-Attebery. “I was fortunate enough to surround myself with men who valued a woman in the CEO role of a major company in the industry. I want to be able to say that my work was 100 percent mine, and that I didn’t do anything to compromise my integrity or the integrity of my companies.”

Kyser CEO Scott Attebery believes that McClung-Attebery is a natural leader. “Meredith’s strength lies in her independent thinking,” he says. “She is true to herself and confident in her skills.  As a result, she inspires our team with that same confidence.”

Under McClung-Attebery’s stewardship, Kyser maintains the same family-run ethos as it did under her great uncle Milton. It is a community and family first company that has diversified its leadership and roster of brand ambassadors, while extending its presence to over 35 countries worldwide. A path it very much intends to continue on in its next 40 years.
