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.

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.

I already had a digital caliper that read millimeter and inch. It works well for most of my applications.
I debated buying another digital caliper.
The Stew Mac caliper is so much more as it's designed specifically for the luthier. After a short period of using, I highly recommend this tool.

Great Luthier's Digital Caliper

Verified Buyer


I've been using a plastic, dial caliper for 30+ years and always wanted one like this one and finally bought it. The little extras that tune for luthier use make it worth a little extra than cheaper ones I can buy in a box store. It will work for guitars and any other home project, such as ammunition reloading where measurements need to be precise. This one does the jobs.

I've always used a "dial" caliper and when I saw this, I thought I'd try it out. Easy to use and large numbers. Very Happy!

I picked this up to replace a cheap caliper I had been trying to use that was really just junk. I was very impressed just picking this tool up after unpacking it. You can tell this is a professional tool the moment you pick it up. The weight is great, the accuracy is perfect, and it’s very easy to use overall. The only complaint (not really a complaint, more of a warning) is the points are brutally sharp so be careful with your fingertips. :)
