Luthier's Featherweight Digital Caliper

A shop favorite, now more affordable than ever!
Our Luthier's Featherweight Digital Caliper is the perfect first step to doing better, more precise work.

Great for apprentices and for travel
By machining this caliper out of ultra-durable resin instead of metal, we've made a tool that is perfect for apprentices, students, or your traveling toolkit. It offers the same precision of our original Luthier's Digital Caliper—at about half the weight.

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.

Handy for lots of other measuring jobs in the shop—nuts, saddles, tuners, tool setups and more. Featuring LCD digital readouts in inches and millimeters. It measures outside, inside and depth dimensions up to 6" (154mm), with super-accurate 0.0005" (0.01mm) resolution.
