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 an inlaid "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.

Mighty Mite Maple/Maple Strat Neck

By

Verified Buyer


I've been doing some woodburning on guitars lately, and had a Robin Trower tribute guitar I was doing on a '93 Mexican Fender Stratocaster I recently acquired. The guitar was in nice shape with a nice nicotine patina (LOL), but it needed a fret job bad!!! I've honestly never seen frets that worn. Our local luthier wanted too much for the job (more than the guitar was worth) and I've never done it so I opted to swap the neck out. First time replacing a neck on any of my guitars. I wasn't sure what to really expect for $113 (a fraction of what the fret job would have cost). I was surprised how nice it looked and felt. I check all the frets with my fret rocker, and they were all level, beautifully dressed and crowned and were polished to a mirror finish. I've built a few kits in the past so was familiar with aligning and installing a neck, and all went well. The neck dropped right in. There was a small gap one side at the pocket, but only about the thickness of a business card. Not a big deal. There's still plenty of contact between the neck and body. I set all of my guitars up to Fender specs, even my guitars that aren't Fender. I was really blown away when I checked the neck curvature, expecting to do a truss rod adjustment. It wasn't even needed! It was .010" gap at the eighth fret just like Fender calls for. How StewMac knew what gauge strings I was going to be using I'm unsure of. LOL. I put all new pots and switch plus a set of Fender Gen4Noiseless pickups in it, and this thing rocks! I've got 69 guitars and this neck feels as nice as any of them! Even my PRS Private stock doesn't feel this good!!!! I'd highly recommend one of these necks as a replacement if you need one! The next step for me is ordering the fret job tools so I can re-fret this other neck myself.......if I can ever put this guitar down. :)

This looks like a beautiful guitar neck. It is for a guitar kit that I hope to build soon. This neck looks as nice as any I've ever seen. I see no reason why it shouldn't work as good as any good Fender Neck.

I know that if there are any problems, that Stewart MacDonald will go out of their way to make things right. That great service is what is really missing with too many other companies in America now.

Put this a Stratacoustic that had an early Chinese neck that bowed severely.
Now it plays great and intonation is good. The ends of the frets could be smoother.
The guitar is usable.
Thumbs up!

Surprised By The Quality!!!

I just recently had a neck replacement job come in my shop that had a limited budget, and after much searching the MM neck looked like the best option.
I was surprised by the quality of it!
Fretwork just needed a tad of ends trimming and polishing.
The shape and profile was great, and the compound radius was nicely done.
Once installed, the Truss rod worked perfectly enabling a perfect Setup.
This neck is on par with necks going for two to three times the price.
I'd recommend and buy another one without hesitation.
Great item, great QC, great neck...!!!

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.
