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.

An Idea to Measure Narrow Fret Divots

By

Verified Buyer


I've super glued a tiny length of low E string core wire onto the depth gauge and can now get it into those narrow divots on the first few frets of the high E and B strings.

really good

have owned two other sets of calipers. these are well made, don't stray from the reading when turned off and on again, and the fraction function is so great (my others didn't have that). only gripe is that the cap that holds in the battery doesn't actually pop into place for some reason. maybe just my set. but really good calipers

Every feature a luthier would want and need in a caliper. The ability to toggle between different measurements (inches, millimeters and fractions) is a winner! Extremely versatile and precise.
