About Fret Distance Calculator (Formula)
The Fret Distance Calculator is a tool used in guitar making and repair to determine the placement of frets on a guitar neck. The formula used in the calculator is based on the scale length of the guitar, which is the distance between the nut and the bridge.
The formula for calculating the fret distance is:
Dfret = SL / 17.817
Where Dfret is the distance between the nut and the fret, and SL is the scale length of the guitar. The value of 17.817 is a constant that takes into account the position of the fret in relation to the nut and the position of the bridge.
By using the Fret Distance Calculator, guitar makers and repairers can accurately determine the placement of frets on a guitar neck, resulting in a well-intonated instrument that plays in tune across all frets.
