Default Good capo for Veillette Avante Gryphon?

Looking to find a capo that fits this little beauty's neck well. The ones I've got are all for regular acoustic guitars, and when they're not fitting awkwardly, they're muffling notes.

the g7 Heritage capo works great on my Gryphon (a regular one, not the avante). I'd suspect any capo that can be tension-adjusted and has the right curvature would be ok. i just tried a schub i had sitting here, and that didn't work too well, wrong radius.

Hi there Dog--email Joe. I'm sure he'd have some suggestions.
