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.

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. :)

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.
