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 Indian 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.

Excellent necks at a great price

By

Verified Buyer


I have installed dozens of Mighty Mite necks. The compound radius models are my personal favorites. They look and play great. Of course, out of the box they require a bit of fret leveling; that's what my Erlewine Neck Jig is for! Besides, I've never run into a new neck that didn't need some fret work. Once installed and set up properly these are excellent necks, and a real bargain.

Perfect Fit!

By

I recently completed a comprehensive overhaul of my '72 Fender Telecaster Deluxe. 1972 was not a banner year for Fender guitars and this particular one was no exception. The original neck (a Strat style with a 3-bolt pattern w/ "micro-tilt" adj.) had a lot of slop in the body rout and I had to shim it extensively to prevent it from shifting from side to side. I decided to replace this neck with a new Mighty Mite Neck for Stat Guitar. Excellent choice!!! The new neck fit the body rout perfectly. The compound radius feels great and plays beautifully, plus it has the 22nd fret on it. My upgrade included going to the traditional 4-bolt pattern to ensure a more thorough contact with the body. Notes ring clear and true and intonation is spot on. With this new neck from Stew-Mac I couldn't be happier!

Awesome value, great neck!

By

Verified Buyer


I chose the maple neck with dark rosewood fretboard, and has a stripe of rosewood down the back of the neck. The frets were nice and smooth, the neck was straight as an arrow, and fit perfectly in my Strat. The truss rod works flawlessly, and the feel and look are impressive! In short, this is an awesome value, for a great replacement neck, well worthy of the minimal amount of time needed to complete the job.
Five (5) Stars! I Would buy more when needed! The nut was great, and frets perfect, I added a set of new Grover tuners to top it off. Get this neck.

Awesome

By

My neck came nicely wrapped, on time, no jagged frets. I'm excited about my new project guitar. Sometimes when you go cheap its bad or good, Stew Mac it's always good customer service while ordering was great not just email response. Stew again Awesome. I was looking around for cheaper but they were cheaper for the size I needed and the quality is off the chain. I'll be back.

Disappointed and surprised coming from StewMac - Nut width incorrect

By

Verified Buyer


I returned this item after they sent me a second replacement. Returned both. The nut width was not as advertised on either nect, e.g. it was 10 or 9.5 16ths' in stead of 11/16. 11/16 nut width was the reason I ordered it.

Nice neck, BUT........

By

Verified Buyer


A beautifully shaped neck with a profile and thickness that are so right. The skunk stripe is cleanly installed and the maple is shaped and sanded well, feels very good in the hand. The frets are nicely installed, but do need to be levelled and crowned. The compound radius and sanding of the rosewood fretboard are nicely done. The finish applied is satin and VERY thin, almost looks as if it is raw maple (good or bad depending on what you prefer). Now the not so good: The radius of the heel is not symmetrical and will need to be corrected. The fret slots have been cut WAY too deep, double what they need to be, almost all the way through the rosewood .The fretboard edges which should be carefully rolled, have been roughly and viciously over filed from frets 12 to 22. Overall, the neck is not made with care or pride, it's a case of purchasing a cheap neck and getting no more than what you paid for. With some work, this will be a comfortable and usable neck, however if you are fastidious ,perhaps you would be better to pay the extra for a fender original.

Should make a nice "Strat"

Verified Buyer


I like Mighty Mite necks. That said, I think that this is a beautiful example, nice rosewood, satin finish, and, I have never had a compound radius before so I am looking forward to seeing how I like it.

Maple neck

Arrived quickly, neck was very well made, EXCEPT for rough fret edges on the edges of the neck. I had a luthier file them down. Allows for great action, great neck profile for high register playing (solos!)

That feeling

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this as my first step into the world of partscasters. Bolted it on to a $60 Rogue Rocketeer and it works great. Suddenly that guitar has become my favorite to play. Know Mighty Mites get some flack for shoddy construction (if you go by the Seymour Duncan forums, you'd think MM necks were a step up from a curtain rod) but my frets required no filing and it just feels great. Huge fan.

Excellent quality

By

Put one of these necks on an old beginner strat I have and it now plays like a brand new $500 guitar. My old neck had worn down frets and was pretty beat up, and to be honest this guitar doesn’t deserve the quality of this fine piece of wood. I couldn’t be happier, it fit in the neck slot no problem and bolted right on. One thing to note is that it doesn’t come pre-drilled so you’ll need to do that yourself, or just screw it on by hand like I did, yikes!
