The 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.

More specifications:
Scale length 25-1/2" (647.70mm)
Width at nut 1-11/16" (42.86mm)
Width at 21st fret 2-3/16" (55.56mm)
Fretboard radius 9-1/2" (241.30mm)
Fretwire .045" high x .095" wide (1.14mm x 2.41mm)
Fret count 21
Approximate heel length 3-5/8" (92.07mm)

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.

you get what you pay for

Neck is straight and the woodwork is allright. The frets needed severe dressing and end filing. I expected something better from StewMac but considering the price, well, you get what you pay for...

Nice necks

Great necks for the price.A quick dress and polish was worthwhile but the fretwork is good, profile great and plays as well as any tele out there. Also worth adding a Tusq nut to complete an excellent package

great replacement neck!

I needed a replacement neck in a hurry and bought one from another dealer that sent me a maple neck that I could not straighten so I purchased a #5719 from StewMac and it is on my guitar AND BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!

The maple neck is one of the best playing necks I've encountered. It plays as well as my EJ strat. Craftsmanship is flawless.

Maple Neck

Arrived within 5 days! Lovely neck does need a little filing though, I hadn't read the stewmac details well enough and now need to order the conversion bushes as the pegholes are too big for my tuners. Read Stewmac's details and specs when ordering lesson learnt. Measure twice order once.

Better than I expected

The fret ends were sticking out bayonet style but after filing them all down with my StewMac fret end file they were tamed. The frets needed a little leveling too. The plastic nut was perfectly serviceable but I decided to swap it out for a Tusq replacement mostly because I like to tinker. Now that it's all set up it plays very nicely with low action and no buzzing. The light finish on the back of the neck is just enough for me. As always, Stewmac delivers faster than anyone else. .

First Time Telecaster

This project was my first time building a telecaster, and you folks at Stew Mac made my experience a dream. The maple fingerboard neck I purchased was perfect. It fit into the pocket just right, the frets were spot on, and the action adjusted right down to where I like it with zero buzz anywhere on the neck. The string slots in the nut were spaced perfectly, and left me enough space to bring the strings down to a close tolerance.
Am I a happy guy? You bet! Would I recommend this product? You bet! I have, and will always recommend Stew Mac for the quality of the products they sell and the professional and timely service I have always received. Thank you Stew Mac. Chris Marvin
