Replacement Neck for Tele Guitar

The 22 frets are nicely finished, and the nut is shaped and slotted. Maple or rosewood fretboard with dot inlays and side markers.

Screwholes for attaching to the body are not drilled. Each neck has a truss rod with a 4mm adjusting nut at the peghead. We recommend Allen Truss Rod Wrench for adjusting neck relief.

Peghead is drilled for 6-in-line tuning machines. 11mm-diameter holes fit sealed gear tuners with threaded peghead bushing. See all tuners.

Scale length 25-1/2" (647.70mm)
Width at nut 1-11/16" (42.86mm)
Width at 22nd fret 2-3/16" (55.56mm)
Fretwire .045" high x .095" wide (1.14mm x 2.41mm)
Approximate heel length 3-5/8" (92.07mm)
Fretboard radius 9-1/2" (241.30mm)

Compound radius necks
The fingerboard surface radius gradually changes from 9.5" at the nut, to 12" at the 22nd fret (241mm to 305mm), for lower action and cleaner string bending. 14.75" (375mm) bridge saddle radius is recommended.

Neck thickness (approximate; not including fret)

Ideally, the neck should just drop into the neck-pocket, or be a little snug. Don't force the neck into the pocket. If the body is unfinished, remember that the finish will make the neck pocket smaller with lacquer build up on the edge of the rout. Be sure to compensate for the finish buildup or the neck will be too tight after finishing.

maple strat neck

i have been playing the guitar for a living for over 20 years now and i can assure you that you `re never going to hear the sound you need from your instrument if the neck is not able to talk loud and clear.even if you use the greatest pickups on earth.i have 10 el.gyitars at this moment and i used to have even more in the past.i have been customizing them all in any way i could and i know exactly what i mean when i say that no pickup can make the difference that a neck can do.this maple neck you made can really play. thank you very much, good job!

Squier strat replacement

Replaced a Squire Strat neck with this. Major improvement. Had already replaced the electronics, which made it sound great, now it plays great, too.

It made the guitar

I changed the neck on my Line 6 JT-69 Variax to a 5714 Compound Radius Maple neck and it made all the difference in the world. It went from being difficult to play, mediocre guitar to an instrument I am happy to play out on gigs. I highly recommend this neck swap.

Good neck ever ! but too much pressed frets

This neck is good. Response is good. But one or two frets was really crushed.It seems be too much pressed .I must level the frets .This is not a too much problem for low price and high quality.

je suis totalement (flabergaster)

En effet, le manche est totalement parfait a l’exception du bord des frets qui écorchent les doigts légèrement mais ce petit détaille est très facilement remédiable. En fait il est tellement bien que j’hésite a installer le lock nut a propos si vous avez des suggestions j’apprécierais beaucoup vos commentaires. Merci! je suis totalement (flabergaster)!

I like to neck

The satin poly finish on the back of the neck has the best feel of any neck. The back of the neck has a great shape of a gentle V near the nut and comfortably round and just the right amount of meat going up the neck. It is not too small and not too big. Frets are perfect med size and beautifully finished. The slotted nut needed no work. Amazing value for the money.

Good for the bucks!

The woods are really good. The craftwork is almost perfect, because the frets may need a finishing at the edge, to make the playing easier.

Nice Neck!

I would definitely buy this neck again although maybe not the compound radius. I had to try one though. I'm not feeling that great a difference in the compound radius and compared to the single radius neck it pretty much throws every action setup technique I've used previously out the window. Great quality & beautiful wood, and the frets were perfectly level right out of the box although they would benefit from a little dressing up. But that should be expected from any pre-made neck. I've been wanting to carve my own neck from scratch but these necks make it difficult to justify especially at the price point. I've only bought one, but so far there's absolutely no reason for anyone to be dis-satisfied.

Maple Strat neck

Nice dense tight grained neck for my son's new guitar. Perfect fretting. Lovely feel. Good price. With Gotohs, The Golden Age wired pearloid pickguard is next for the Hank/Hendrix tone he's chasing. Thanks.
