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 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. 11mm-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)

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.

Brilliant service from Stew-Mac

Beautiful neck, perfectly finished. First one got lost in UK customs but a replacement was shipped out with no quibbles, by courier at no cost to me, as soon as available. Thanks again Karen.

Tele neck is outstanding

I've built two guitars with this Tele neck and both turned out great. There was a bit of fine-tuning required with the nut, but that should be expected if you want perfection.

Tele Neck

I bought a Tele neck back in '92 thru StewMac and it's still one of my best playing necks! No warping twisting or fret problems even thru many moves round the world! StewMac really does their home work on getting the best possible and hard to get items to supply everyone in need of it!! Thanks guys!! :) I would definitely recommend buying anything from the guys there!!

StewMac comes through again!

I needed a replacement neck for my project P-90 Esquire after purchasing a dud elsewhere. What a great neck. the finish is perfect and it plays awesome. It feels a little fatter than my other tele necks, which is my preference anyway. Would highly recommend!

very satisfied

The workmanship on the neck is excellent; the fretting on the maplewood neck is outstanding. I'm working on a Vaccaro body and the fit is excellent; nice mate.

Great neck

I didn't have to refinish it at all and it feels and plays well. I coupled this with their Tele semi-hollow body and some split-coil minihums.

Tele replacement neck

Is it possible to give a 4.85 star rating? I usually build my own maple necks from scratch, and I'm very fussy. The fretting and shaping is perfect. A bit thinner and narrow-er than my spec's, but my names not 'Leo'. When sealed; re-finished; & bolted to my custom bodies, these necks allowed me to turn around new projects faster than ever.

Great value

Great value. Although requiring finishing, which I prefer, everything else has been great on the couple that I have ordered. The heel transition is 'correct' unlike some necks that look more like LP's in this area. Minimal (if any) fret work required. Nut is higher than I prefer, but still very playable for most players. I roll the edges as I prefer this. Heel requires a little sanding if your neck pocket is very close to spec, but a little sanding makes for a nice and snug fit after finishing. I don't like the plastic truss fillet at the peg-head, personally, but it's like the MIM's so customers don't mind. Skunk stripe is nicely done on the ones I've received. No comebacks on these.
