Can I use an electric guitar capo on my acoustic guitar?

The capo is a little tight but it seems to be alright. I just don’t want to harm the guitar because it’s my dad’s. Will the electric guitar capo harm an acoustic guitar?

Chosen Answer:

Sure you can! It won’t harm the guitar. To avoid sharpening the notes place the capo ON the fret not in between the frets. Though this might impede your playing depending how close to the capo you’re playing.

    It won’t harm the guitar, but it will probably pull all the strings sharp, so you’ll be out of tune.

    That’s why spring-type capos suck. Buy a Shubb.
