Mighty Mite Neck for Strat Guitar

About This Item

Shaped, inlaid, fretted and finished—feels and plays great! Hard rock maple finished in clear satin polyurethane, with a walnut "skunk stripe" down the back.

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 single-action 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. 10mm-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.

mighty mite neck for stratocaster

(Customer's Reviews)

After reviewing youtube installation video I was able to install this neck and can't leave this guitar alone. The neck is better than I expected. I put 3 coats of acrylic on the neck, shimmed it and have enjoyed the vintage feel and playability.

I dont leave reviews much but this neck was worth a review. The frets needed a little clean up on the ends but some fine sandpaper fixed that in a few minutes. Other than that this neck is fantastic. I play strictly compound radius necks and this neck is just as pleasing as my fender elite compound radius. Dont hesitate!


All expectations were met!

(Customer's Reviews)

I love this neck. It has a vintage feel and after installation played great. I am completely satisfied with this product. Masked off the fret board and sprayed on a few coats of clear acrylic and it was ready to install. I would recommend this to anyone needing a replacement neck for their stratocaster.
