Thickness Caliper

High quality caliper is designed specifically for luthiers, with a deep 9" (228mm) reach to accommodate an archtop guitar, mandolin, violin or viola.

Inch or metric models for archtop carving!
To carve an archtop instrument you need fast, precise measurements of critical top and back thicknesses. Our caliper does the job with just a flick of your thumb.

The dial indicator is accurate to .001" (the metric model to 0.01mm) for thicknesses up to 1" (25mm). It has an adjustable zero point, and can also be positioned for left-hand use. You can install the removable brass foot for convenient freestanding operation, or take your measurements freehand; the sturdy lightweight aluminum frame is easy to handle.

I've been using it for 2 or 3 years now and so far so good.

This is a great tool for the range of finish dimensions of a top or bottom, but I noticed that anything above ~ .150 inches the brass pull on the end of the dial caliper actually gets in the way and causes errors in measurements of as much as .050.

An excellent tool, extremely accurate when used the right way. I need it only for measuring top and back thicknesses and perhaps accuracy up to 0,1 mm would be sufficient for this job.
