Luthier's Digital Caliper

About This Item

Our Luthier's Digital Caliper combines precision, ease of use, versatility and an attractive price, but its usefulness for fret work makes it special.

Customized for fretwork!
We added a custom jaw notch for accurately measuring fretwire crown height (the height above the fretboard). This is essential for comparing new wire to original wire. And thanks to a great idea by repairman Frank Ford, we've also added a notch on the depth gauge to measure fret height on the instrument—a real time saver.

  • Measures fret height before AND after fret installation
  • Accurate readouts in inches, millimeters, or fractions
  • A must for all precision guitar work

Handy for lots of other measuring jobs in the shop—nuts, saddles, tuners, tool setups and more—this caliper has long-life stainless steel jaws. Featuring LCD digital readouts in inches, millimeters or fractions, it measures outside, inside and depth dimensions up to 6" (154mm), with super-accurate .0005" (.01mm) resolution. The jaws can be locked at any position.

CR2032 battery and durable plastic storage case included.

Good replacement

I ordered these to replace the ones I purchased years ago. I loved the old ones. These are definitely not the same, so it's taken a bit to get used to them. I like the new features. They seem a bit sturdier then the old ones. I like them.

If I hadn't already had a micrometer, I buy this one. The fret groove would be handy and the fraction function is really useful.

I just received my new calipers. I checked them on NIST traceable gauge blocks from .0625" - 6.000". The measured dead-on. I am quality manager for Large wire fabrication company. As part of my job I handle/verify many differnt types and brands of calipers. Starrett, Brown and Sharp, T&O, Mitutoyo. For the money you just cant beat these. The quality definitely exceeded my expectation. I do NOT work for Stewmac. But I am a happy customer. Peace. When I was researching these about a year ago. Many reviews complained that the caliper was turning on in the case (if bumped or jarred) and killing batteries. There is an on/off switch on these so not to worry. The design has been upgraded.
