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)
String post spread 4-11/16" (119.06mm)

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.

My first Compound Radius neck; This thing plays nice!!!

By

Verified Buyer


The first thing I did was sand off the cheap poly finish and darken the maple with a mixture of brown and red aniline dye, 3 coats of Behlen, wet sand / buff, and a quick polish of the frets and this thing feels like butter!!! It would have been ready to play out of the box but I prefer lacquer over poly and highly polished frets.

Disappointing

By

Verified Buyer


This neck is straight and the truss rod works. Other than that, it's awful as a "drop in" replacement neck. Every fret end is sharp - every single one. 5 or 6 of the frets have small dents, there's a rough area on the fretboard that needs more sanding, you can feel the edge of the skunk stripe on the back of the neck, and the frets are vintage small - too small for most modern players tastes. The frets are not level. I'm keeping it because I'm still trying to get really good at doing refrets. With a refret and a little sanding, this can be a good neck - that's why I gave it two stars instead of one. But it needs a lot of work. As it is, it's below the level of a Squier Bullet neck.

The neck fit perfectly and compares favorably to our MIM Strat neck. For the price it's amazing.

Not a Bad Place to Start

this is a solid replacement neck if you have a few basic tools and know how to perform set ups and minor guitar repair. This is NOT a drop in replacement neck. It will fit the pocket nicely but is left unplayable without doing file work on the nut slots and leveling high frets (3 on mine on the bass side). With a little bit of work I got this neck out of buzz city and it plays like a champ for less than a higher quality neck. If these are not skills you have I advise spending more for better QC consistency

Bought a cheap neck the first time! After much work to no avail I trashed it and bought this. I drilled new holes bolted it on and voila! Done. Great neck! You get what you pay for...and this is a great value!

This the 3rd I've bought of this model. (first from SM) This is the only one that was no sealed with poly, it was bare wood. It was also the first to not need the fret ends filed except at the fretboard taper. It need leveling very badly but I do that to ALL necks. I've only had one of the 3 be clear lumber. This one has a knot to the top marking "C" position. In the end it plays absolutely beautifully. Perfect shape, great rigidity. Handles drop D without buzzing the top string.

New neck for my Frankenstein Strat

By

Verified Buyer


After the 30-year-old neck on my white frankenstrat finally warped beyond playability, I placed an order for one of the Mighty Mite rosewood compound necks. After reading the reviews, I was prepared to do some remedial work on it. Imagine my surprise when I pulled a nice, straight Strat neck out of the box! The frets were nice and level, requiring only a polishing. The nut was a bit high, which should be expected on a replacement neck. It was a perfect fit on my knock-off body. The resulting combination plays beautifully, with no buzzes or dead spots. I'm not sure what neck some of the other guys were reviewing. Maybe I'm just easy to entertain, but this is a lot of neck for not much money.
