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, Indian Rosewood or Indian Laurel fretboard with dot inlays and side markers.

Indian Laurel (Terminalia elliptica) is a great alternative to rosewood that can be shipped worldwide. It has a similar dark brown appearance to Indian Rosewood, with a slightly more porous texture and occasional light colored grain lines.

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.

The skunk stripe is the same wood as the fingerboard for necks with Indian Rosewood and Indian Laurel fingerboards. Necks with maple fingerboards have merbau wood skunk stripes.

Good neck but need some work

By

Verified Buyer


This neck was installed on a mim strat body heel fit the pocket perfectly without modification. I did run into some issues with the nut and frets. The string slots in the nut were cut too deep from the factory so the entire nut had to be replaced. Not a big deal but why include a nut if it's not useable? Out of the box the fret ends were very sharp and very noticeable and it also needed a fret level. These aren't really big issues especially considering the price just be aware when you order one of these necks that you will at minimum need to some fret work. That aside this is a very fast comfortable neck.

Mighty Mite Neck for Strat Guitar

Purchased a radiused Strat neck for a new “ build” from the mighty Stewmac.com. I live in Canada, and even though i was expecting the parcel to arrive much later, it showed up properly packaged, un-damaged, and the neck itself is great!
I have a little dressing to do, which is always expected, and over-all, i am very pleased,
I’ll definitely recommend these necks to my peers.

Very good value

I bought a MM neck to go with a new body I was making, and I am very happy with the quality of the neck I got. The finish is very smooth and feels great. The frets are level and the ends were not sharp at all. It plays very nicely. I will plan to get a Mighty Mite neck for my next build, whenever that happens.

The neck I received is excellent, nice maple grain,solid and I assume it is a rosewood fingerboard is even more pronounced in the grain pattern! I was not expecting fretted but it is and great job there as well.
Stew-Mac is about the best, their prices can be a bit higher for some things but well worth it. Who else has learning videos as well as products?!

I LOVE this neck!

By

Verified Buyer


I put this neck on a Fender American Highway One body that I've had sitting around. The neck is straight and perfect. It has extremely low action, and plays great! It really exceeded my expectations for a $135 neck.

One note - The frets needed to be polished. The photo below is a microscope view which shows the tool marks on the frets from the factory. (The blue is blue painters tape I used to mask off the fretboard.) I hit it with a 2000 grit, and then a 3000 grit sandpaper, and now it plays like a dream!

Great neck

By

Had slight problems with the first neck I ordered - had no problems returning it and getting a replacement. The neck is well made and fits my Strat perfectly. I like having the truss rod adjustment at the tuner end of the neck - makes adjusting the bow a lot easier.
