Luthier's Digital Caliper

About This Item

Our Luthier's Digital Caliper combines precision, ease of use, and versatility all at an attractive price. But what makes it really special is how easy it makes fret work.

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.

THEY ARE JUST PLAIN GREAT!!!!! Accurate, nice snug movement, big display, etc! I measured fret height on my aco. guit. 60 times BEFORE I do my extensive luthier work. After fret level, before I crown them, I will measure 60x and see how little I've taken off! Also going to replace saddle and the calipers are going to play a big part, after sanding, for a snug fit in the bridge. I can't tell you how much I love them, can't figure out what great tool to get next!! Have a good day!

Wonderful Upgrade!

I was finally ready to get an upgrade from my HF calipers. This are such a huge improvement. The big readout screen and the ability to switch between fractions, decimals, and mm is perfect. Couldn't be happier. Came with a nice case and an extra battery.

Glad I purchased this Lutier's Digital Caliper . I've owned othe digital calipers but the seemed a little flimsy and wouldn't hold the reading even when the set screw was tightened . But this caliper keeps the setting and is very accurate .

The real deal

For working with precise measurement, you just can't go wrong with this Bad Oscar. At first, it seemed a bit on the pricey side however, you get what you pay for. I like the different measurements from fractions, MM's and Inches. It measures Fret Height and I really like the little fine tune wheel. I highly recommend this Instrument and I am very happy that purchased this and will last a lifetime.

Better than expected.

This caliper is finding all kinds of uses that I didn’t expect and is most helpful, for example measuring tenons to fit mortises, etc. that apply to jobs other than instrument making. It’s quality is much better than I expected and the case is nice too. Thank you!

Don't know why I waited so long to own one of these, but it is just about perfect for any job that requires precise measurements. Comes in a solid case with extra battery. I will find many uses for it. Thanks StewMac.

Quality amazing tool but one small annoyance

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to replace my cheap callipers. It’s super accurate, sturdy, smooth, and switching to fractions is great especially because I grew up with only metric.
The only down side is having to either zero the depth gauge or subtract 2mm every time you want to measure depth. I don’t think I’ll ever measure fret crown heights so doesn’t seem worth the hassle. I’ll probably DIY something to the end unless the StewMac wizards come up with something.
Still a great tool!

Excellent tool!

I have check this against a set of digital calipers costing four times as much and it's right on the money. Plus the ability to measure fractions is a HUGE plus for guitar work. I'm a huge fan of this caliper. Highly recommend! It's the only one in our professional shop.
