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 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 maple neck

By Agent McNeely from Island County WA
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, April 13, 2012

Replaced a MIA rosewood with the compound all maple. Mounted well, sanded the fret ends slightly and that guitar is making some great sounds. Might replace the nut--but I know this is the neck that will stay on this guitar for a real long time. Love it. Now some new necks for the Squier 51! Great customer service too. Thanks.

Maple neck

By Heinrich de Beer from Polokwane, South Africa

I ordered the one piece maple neck and I must say I am impressed! The grain is beautiful and the frets are set superbly. The neck is made by mighty mite which is mentioned on the website in the fine print(many customers failed to see it) My only complaint is that the nut is poor quality and I will have to replace it with a bone or lsr roller nut at some point. Thank you Stew mac for your amazing service and quality.

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.

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.

En effet, le manche est totalement parfait a lÆexception du bord des frets qui Tcorchent les doigts lTgFrement mais ce petit dTtaille est trFs facilement remTdiable. En fait il est tellement bien que jÆhTsite a installer le lock nut a propos si vous avez des suggestions jÆapprTcierais beaucoup vos commentaires. Merci! je suis totalement (flabergaster)!

I like to neck

By Ron Siwicki from Winnipeg
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, November 17, 2011

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!

By JLondon from Owensboro, KY

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.
