Luthier's Digital Caliper

About This Item

Our Luthier's Digital Caliper combines precision, ease of use, versatility and an attractive price, but its usefulness for fret work makes it special.

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.

An excellent tool.....but.....

By

Verified Buyer


A good tool. However the fret height notch is a pain in the arse, requiring the caliper to be seated on a flat surface & zero to be selected before accurate measurement can take place. The depth bar should be to the end of the caliper, not to the top of the notch. I notice that a few of your reviews mention the same observation. This all adds up to lost time if you want to measure an entire fretboard.

Very accurate, easy to use

This caliper is exactly what I needed for measuring necks. Quick, accurate readings. My only issue is that the thumb wheel feels loose and a little cheap, but it serves the purpose. I would recommend this caliper.

Finally bought one of these after wasting money on a few very inaccurate versions. Best thing I ever did. This has so many good features about it, I'm yet to fault it and I use it every day.
Thanks Stewy

Just right

Just what I was loooking for. Nice big display for my eyes that don’t see 64th s so we’ll this year. The 3 display modes are great, I use them all. And zeroing at any point is helpful. I have not yet used it for fretwork but I suspect the milled out sections will be helpful. My first non anolog version seems good and sold

I can't even begin to estimate how many times I have used my non digital caliper and had to convert to Fractions - this is a very high quality tool that will save me hours and give me more accurate readings to boot.
