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.

Specifications
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.

Smooth neck finish with minimal neck adjustment. Brian Jones would be happy!

Rosewood Compound Radius Strat Neck

By
(Customer's Reviews)


After receiving the neck, I found that the neck heel was an excellent fit for my Strat. It only took a couple of hours to install it and get it set up. I'm really impressed by the fretwork. I am also pleasantly surprised that it came with a pre-slotted nut that required no work whatsoever. The only thing that I will be doing to it is buffing the frets. If you have experience working on guitars, this neck is plug-and-play. Awesome.

Better than new

It took one day to install this neck.
After adjustments this neck plays better than the one that came with this american standard strat. It also improved the sustain . Thanks Jim Vaughan

Nice Neck

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Ordered the compound radius with rosewood for a strat. project.
First one had some factory issues, StewMac took care of it asap!!
Nice neck, usual setup adjustments.
First try was following site ad suggestion for a 14.75 in. radius at the bridge. I like to set strings low, so I wound up with some fret buzz. Switched to 12 in. radius and
guitar is fine. Ordered most of the parts for this build from Stew Mac, all first rate equip.

ordered the neck and hoped for the best... it was shipped quickly, but as i am in the UK it took a while to clear customs here.
unpacked, fitted to my guitar body and was playing it that evening. plays like butter!
i would recommend this to anyone with any guitar that it will fit! no fret dressing, no trussrod adjustment or anything required AT ALL. Superb neck! not played another of my guitars since i have had it!!!

First try with Stewmac neck

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Nice product. Not the most interesting grain pattern in the rosewood, but looks great with my very dark green finished strat-style guitar. Straight and true with no high or low frets, and I appreciated the pre-slotted nut. I measured 0.025 at the first fret which I lowered to 0.016 to 0.018 (high e to low e). Only problem at all was a small streak of high paint on the back near the body joint. About 2 minutes work with a scraper and some 3000 sand-paper and it was absolutely perfect!

Now I might sell it, just so I can buy one of the birdseye maple necks and build another strat!

Great for Line 6 Variax

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Bought a new Line 6 Variax JTV69S and like some others that posted here, I did not like the stock neck. I am OK with either Gibson or Fender necks, but this Variax, I just couldn't get to like. I bought the StewMac strat neck, compound radius with maple board and had a luthier put it on and do the adjustments. EXCELLENT! Love the new neck and very happy to have made the switch. If I didn't, I would never have liked the Variax. I have one complaint, and that is, the new neck has a somewhat dull finish. I would have preferred a gloss finish. A nice poly finish would make it a faster neck and string bends could be done on a smoother surface. For this reason, I only gave 4 stars. But the shape is great and it was a prefect fit.

My only question with these necks, will take time to answer; how will the light finish perform? Other than that the necks are good, solid, and perform well.

Sweet neck

I love this compound radius neck. Everything was great except for the fret ends. It was like rubbing a saw. Customer service said it was because of the weather so I guess it's only meant to be played in the summer. They offered to replace it but instead I filed down the fret ends. I figured it would be replaced with another just like it. Now it's like butter. Just plan on a little filing.
