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.

strat guitar project

I acquired a new strat w/rosewood board 4 yrs ago. I prefer maple boards so i ordered your replacement neck the same day. Fretwork was excellent, soft "v" profile feels great. I've rolled the edges and this neck has now been through several bodies. It reminds me of the neck on a Fender Clapton Signature Strat i owned. It has held up really well, finish aging nicely. It is without a doubt the best playing neck I've used.

Another Strat Completed

This is the 4th replacement StewMac neck I have purchased and used for my guitar building projects. This latest neck is for an active pre-amp outfitted strat. Fits perfectly with good clean action. I do augment the neck finish with antique maple finish for a more golden color.

Great quality necks!

Hey guys, I've used your stat necks and uncut headstock necks on a variety of customer guitars and have always had great results. Strong and straight and perfectly fretted. In response to the review by Wilbury out of Russia, frets "sticking out" is common with all guitars, not a flaw. The weather in your part of Russia is probably less humid than where these were made. Things like electric heat sources will also help to dry out the wood in the neck, shrinking it slightly, and making the frets stick out so to speak. It's a common occurrence and a common repair for any workshop. I don't even think about it anymore, when a guitar comes in for a setup during the winter especially, I take a few minutes to do the fret ends.. (Using my trusty Stew-mac files) Again, great products guys!

Maple Strat Replacement Neck

I was first very satisfied with this neck as it arrived. It looked and felt quite good, especially taking into account the price. But, unfortunately, after six months I noticed that all the frets began to stick out along the edges of the fretboard (quite painfully scratching fingers). I have to say that the neck was not exposed to any extreme conditions such as temperature changes or low humidity. The reason, I guess, might be that the neck and the frets 'set in' this way. Also I surmise that the frets might have been installed without glue. Alas, in my particular case Mighty Mite is really poor quality. I wish I'd paid more but had a better quality product.

We're sorry to hear you're having problems with the fret ends on this neck. Humidity conditions can wreak havoc on many guitar necks. Here's a great Trade Secret article, Fixing fret ends that stick out in dry weather covering this very topic. We appreciate your feedback and your business.

Replacement neck

I purchased one of your rosewood strat necks because the neck on my strat was one of those crappy Fender Bi-flex necks that Fender used. After about 10 years of using the strat, the neck was in bad shape and could not be re-fretted or fixed. So I bought your neck (which is really a mighty mite neck). The lady that took my order was great the neck was unbelievable and I will be buying another neck for my other strat which has the crappy Fender bi-flex neck. The neck has made my strat play so much better and even sound so much better.... thank you again

Love the feel

After cleaning up some sharp fret edges, and a slight head modification, this neck is perfect. I got the maple compound. Make shure you get the right bridge radius. I love it.

Pretty good for the price

I was looking at buying used MIM Fender necks online but decided to buy one of these because they were a bit cheaper. The rosewood fingerboard feels nice, the frets are level and there doesn't seem to be any more buzzing than usual. A good neck for the money.
