Enter the scale length (in) into the Fret Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Fret Distance.

## Fret Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Fret Distance.

Dfret = SL / 17.817
• Where Dfret is the Fret Distance (in)
• SL is the scale length (in)

To calculate the fret distance, divide the scale length by 17.817.

## How to Calculate Fret Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Fret Distance.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the scale length (in).
• The scale length (in) is given as: 30.5.
2. Finally, calculate the Fret Distance using the equation above:

Dfret = SL / 17.817

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dfret = 30.5 / 17.817 = 1.712 (in)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

scale length (in) = 70.2

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

Dfret = SL / 17.817 = ?
