Mighty Mite Neck for Tele 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 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.

More specifications:
Scale length 25-1/2" (647.70mm)
Width at nut 1-11/16" (42.86mm)
Width at 21st fret 2-3/16" (55.56mm)
Fretboard radius 9-1/2" (241.30mm)
Fretwire .045" high x .095" wide (1.14mm x 2.41mm)
Fret count 21
Approximate heel length 3-5/8" (92.07mm)
String post spread 4-11/16" (119.06mm)

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.

Great tele neck replacement

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this rosewood neck to replace maple one on my MIM tele. Great choice, I figured it would work out ok, as I had bought a Mighty Mite rosewood strat neck a while back, which was a great upgrade.
Love my tele's sound, pickups about right for output and not too bright, which can happen in some tele's. Stock Fender neck was not so hot, fixed height of nut first, tried fret leveling and recrowning and tamping down a proud 2nd fret, high E side which helped a lot, but it was still just not happening for me.
This new neck makes the guitar sing now.
One thing, the frets need some 8000 grit and 0000 steel wool polishing, I can do that, no prob.
2 suggestions for any on the fence deciding to buy one, yes/no.
1- don't recall having seen this anywhere, a new neck such as this can maybe help with chronic tuning problems when you gave tried everything else, tuners, nut, bridge, strings (my theory, fretting on uneven fretboard causes strings to go out of tune more easily and premature wear on strings, also maybe original neck wood too soft, not 100% sure about the original neck wood being too soft, just a thought).
But with this Mighty Mite neck, the guitar holds a tune very well, even with .010's, I usually go with .011s.
Intonation with neck is good too, no complaints there. I might be looking for a zero fret solution to try out sometime to see how that works for me.
2 when you install the new neck, tamp it gently but firmly on the end of the headstock against body before tightening the 4 neck screws. This will insure a tight nechanical coupling between the neck and the body enabling optimal string resonance.

I bought this for e telecaster I built and it worked great! These necks are made to the correct neck pocket size, the frets are nice, and the finish is great. Truss rod is a quality item too. I've used about a dozen of these on my builds.

So far I'm very happy with this neck. I would highly recommend it. I was considering Warmouth neck but it was going to $430. I'm glad I searched around a bit.

High Quality Neck

I recently purchased a neck from you guys after the truss rod on my 'franken-tele' stopped working. The original neck had some laquer on it, which I am averse to; while, the neck I bought from you guys has a satin finish (perfect for me). It's a perfect fit, and the circumference is just right for my fretting hand....couldn't be happier. Thanks for providing the high quality products that you do. I appreciate it very much.

I ordered this neck to complete a simple parts guitar and was pleasantly surprised. The truss rod adjusted beautifully, took my spare 10mm Grover mini tuners without a hitch. Great fit into a generic Tele pocket, great fit and finish on the frets. A no frills working player's neck. Thanks StewMac!
