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.

Great instrument!

I use this doing regular maintenance and set up on my Electric guitars. It is well built, provides a stable reading, and is a quality tool! It is also very useful in measuring fret height to evaluate fret wear.

I already had one of these digital caliper that I have been using for the last few years - It's been very accurate and reliable, I just ordered a second one only because of the way I have my shop set up - I have two benches - one I use just for setups and inspections in the front of the shop, and a bench in the wood working area - Now I have a Caliper for each bench. I would definitely recommend the purchase!

Got this for my husband for Christmas....he was SO pleased and surprised! I thought he had something like this and felt like the digital might be better.....He said this was one of the things he needed so badly and was so surprised that I found it!

Stewart-MacDonald always seems to have just what he needs that I don't know about. I saw this and something told me this would be perfect. It was!

Thank you so much for your quality products and the best customer service!

Even better than the earlier version!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I used the earlier version of the StewMac digital caliper for years and was quite happy with it - until I saw there was a new model. It had new features I couldn't pass up: a bigger display, readouts in both digital and fractions of an inch, and an auto shutoff. So, I moved my other caliper to a different bench and bought the new one for guitar work. I absolutely love it and look forward to many years of great service from it.

Be aware of Battery operated Calipers

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These Calipers are fine until the batteries start to deplete. They even warn you in the instructions that the accuracy will go down as the battery depletes. They are suspect at best to me unless a new battery is installed, which is a pain.

Seems to work well and provide repeatable accurate results. I love the fractional inch mode and look forward to being able to measure fret height when needed.
