Fret distance calculator

In this page, you can calculate the distance between the capo and each fret, based on the equal temperament. you can use these distances to make your own fretboards and templates. Distances are calculated from the nominal capo position to the center of each fret.

Calculation is based on equal temperament, dividing the octave in 12 semitones and on Mersenne’s formula that links the frequency of vibration to the string lenght.
