Measures fret height before AND after fret installation
Accurate readouts in inches or millimeters
A must for all precision guitar work
Always one of our most popular items when we exhibit at luthiers conventions! This caliper combines precision, ease of use, versatility and an attractive price, but its usefulness for fret work makes it special. 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.
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 or millimeters, 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.
Battery and durable plastic storage case included.
