Replacement Neck for Strat Guitar

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.

Maple Strat Neck Better Than Original

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I recently purchased a Fender 2000 american standard strat body. The first place I looked for a neck was StewMac. I have purchased a variety of parts and luthier tools here before. I have always been impressed by the quality of the items I have bought here and the customer support is the best I have ever encountered. I always get a reply within 24 hours. The maple neck that I received was in my opinion better than the stock Fender neck that was on my original 2000 american standard start. The finish was impeccable, there was absolutely no fret sprout, the neck was already adjusted for the proper neck relief I did not have to adjust the truss rod after installation, the neck fit the body perfectly. If you are looking for guitar parts or luthier tools there is no better place to shop than StewMac.

Maple Compound Radius

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Just put this on my strat and although I had to shim it out a little, it plays awesome! Night and day difference! I highly recommend it! Put some locking tuning machines in there and they fit perfectly! This neck is super smooth and plays easy! Will recommend this neck to anyone looking for an upgrade!

Just dandy for Line-6 JTV-69

Line-6 makes a great modeling guitar with an unfortunate neck. After installing a compound radius rosewood fingerboard it's an entirely new instrument. A highly recommended modification!

One fine neck

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The neck arrived on time, properly packed. The finish, frets, nut & string cuts were all excellent. Really, the most important thing about my experience with it is the way it plays... I hope I never have another Strat-style guitar that DOESN'T have the compound radius; it really lets lead work 10th fret on up just flow off the fingers. Sweeeet.
My biggest problem now, is what put on the headstock: a Fender Decal, or something else more related to it being a parts-caster...

I turned a frankenstein strat with humbucker, floyd and kramer hockeystick neck into a vintage Dave Gilmour style strat. New Black pickguard, compound radius maple neck, and vintage style gotoh bridge. Ordered on sunday night arrived on wednesday.
Put together looks & plays like a dream. Thanks Stewmac great price great quality great service

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.
