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.

Can't Go Wrong

This neck is great, excellent profile a tiny bit thin for me still, but not by a lot. Straight, good fret job, not perfect, but so affordable. My neck has a few blemishes, and the heel might be a little small but it sounds, feels so good and resonates well so I didn't return it. I got the compound rosewood neck and it is a winner.

Quality neck at a value price.

Actually the first one I got was simple to put on and quite frankly I really liked it but, it was cut in on one side between the 5th and 7th fret, very small problem but, I called StuMac and they replaced it, no problems with another very nice neck. It just does not get any better than that. I will add this, both necks had wonderful rolled frets right out of the box.

Aside from cleaning some sharp edges from the frets, this compound radius neck is everything a Strat lover could want. I like the action super low, and this neck allows that.

Strat maple neck

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

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.
