Luthier's Digital Caliper

About This Item

Our Luthier's Digital Caliper is a step above the normal hardware store caliper. With steel construction and completely upgraded professional features, this precision fretting tool will be on your bench for a lifetime.

Customized for fretwork and more!
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.

The most precise work you've ever done
But these pro calipers are for more than just fretting! These upgraded calipers will let you do any job with extreme accuracy.

    Pro-level features:
  • Solid stainless steel construction
  • Lockable jaws
  • Micro-adjustable thumbwheel
  • And 3 types of measurement readouts—inches, millimeters, AND fractions!
    Additional features:
  • Measures fret height before AND after fret installation
  • Accurate 0.0005" (0.01mm) resolution
  • Measures outside, inside, and depth dimensions
  • Durable plastic storage case included
  • CR2032 battery included

They're extemely 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 0.0005" (0.01mm) resolution. The jaws can be locked at any position.

These heavy duty calipers and made for daily use in a busy shop. Just getting stated? Our Luthier's Featherweight Digital Caliper is perfect for apprentices, students, or your traveling toolkit. They're a super-affordable way to start doing more accurate work.

Solid caliper, buy with confidence

Although I have another imperial/metric 6” digital caliper, I decided to get this one as well. I kinda’ like the fractional display, in some instances it is handy to have direct read fractions. I’m trying to train myself to work at home shop in metric measure, having worked at a fiber optical industry which was full metric. It has a nice “heft” to it, the readout is substantially larger than the other caliper I have, and they both take the same CR2032 battery. Taking some measurements on various drill rod stock, etc. comparing one caliper against the other, both are in agreement, so I feel OK that the new one is accurate as well. Although I won’t make use of the fret utility of this caliper all that much, I can definitely see where it would be a good feature.

This has many applications and works perfectly. Sure you can get by without one, but it is a pleasure to have a precise tool like this.

Nice tool.

This was a big improvement over the HB Freight caliper I had. The feature for measuring the crown height for the frets is very helpful. The tool feels sturdy and is easy to read.

Very Innovative Caliper

By

Verified Buyer


I've owned a pair of these for a few years now. I really like being able to easily measure fret tang depth and crown height using the mods that Stewmac builds into these plus making other more common measurements. I couldn't quite go five stars because any time they're bumped (even in the case) they can switch on automatically and run the battery down between uses. I used to be able to mostly avoid that by using the lock screw to prevent the movement that turns them on, but unfortunately the threads stripped long ago. I'm not that rough on my tools. I wish this were made just a little better.
