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. Slotted nut is shaped from PPS plastic with a flat bottom. 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.

Strat style neck

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this neck to replace a cracked neck on a Peavey Reactor.As far as the neck pocket it is the same size except for the depth.The Mighty Mite neck is not as thick at the heel as the Reactor neck.I compensated for this by making a 1/8 inch thick shim between the neck and guitar body and it came out perfect.As far as the neck it arrived packed very well and only need minor filing on the fret ends and I polished the frets for smoother action.If you need a new neck for your strat style guitar this one is an excellent choice. I would have given five stars if the fret ends had been a little cleaner.

This is a quality Fender Style Neck! I used it for a guitar build. The neck installed easily and my guitar sounds great.

Great neck

Feels great, truss rod works smoothly, sometimes needs a bit of sanding in the edge of the frets but the leveling is very good. Bought 3 already, will buy more in the future.

Very Nice Neck, Great Price

By

I got this to replace a 25 year old Warmouth compound radius birdseye neck that I didn't have the money to refret right now.
Feel is virtually identical and the quality of the neck is way better than you might think for the money you pay. Nut and frets were well done and the neck is playable one you drill the holes to mount and tuner holes.
I'd recommend and will be getting another for a parts guitar I have.

Watching the YouTube videos on hot-rodding Squiere Strats, I was inspired to build my own. The option for replacing the neck was because I was intimidated by the prospect of filling in and then re-drilling holes for the Fender locking tuners. Buying a StewMac neck seemed simpler. The neck arrived in a timely fashion and was wrapped appropriately. I mounted the locking tuners.

YouTube videos implied that it was just a matter of putting the neck in the slot and screwing it in. On the first try, during re-stringing - the 1st E string was hanging off the edge of the neck by a fraction. So refraining from panic, I slept on the problem. Next day, I filled in the screw holes, clamped the neck to the position that I thought it should be and then strung both E strings - but not to full tension. This straightened out the neck to what I thought was the proper position and I screwed the neck on and now it plays like a dream.

Very happy.

Lovely neck kit

Delighted with the overall quality of the Mighty Mite neck when it arrived. Closer inspection showed some minor work was required to the fret ends, but nothing beyond the ability of a novice. Currently in process of applying Tru Oil, and the expectation of a great finished neck is high.

Mighty Mite Maple/Maple Strat Neck

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.
