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 an inlaid "skunk stripe" down the back.

The frets are nicely finished, and the 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.

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.

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.

Awesome necks.

I have a few of these necks and they are always perfect. No need to touch up the nut or anything. The last one I bought was for a customer and he loved it as well!

Perfect Replacement for My Blonde Tele

By

Verified Buyer


Love the Indian Rosewood. Nice quality neck and it fit like a glove. No dings and no unnecessary drilled holes like some others you might find out there. That gives you the freedom to use whatever king of machines you like. Had to do a bit of fine sanding to make it the way I like it but at least you have the choice. You can't add wood once it's sanded away but you can sand away whatever you want.
Fret placement is spot on as well so setting intonation is cake. Nut height was good for me too.

Mity Mite Tele Neck (rosewood fingerboard)

By

Verified Buyer


This is the second Mity Mite neck I have purchased. So far I have been very satisfied with the fit, feel, and finish. Intonation is good too. I have had some issues with bolt on maple necks on newer guitars (both with expensive and inexpensive guitars) changing dimensions after a winter/summer cycle where we experience normal humidity changes in the Northeast USA. I hope that this new neck remains stable. I am replacing a neck from a large guitar manufacturer that had a terrible twist in it that was easily and readily apparent to the eye.

Another great neck

By

Verified Buyer


Purchased this one for a custom tele and another for a custom with a strat pocket. Both necks exceeded my expectations. Frets were perfect on both and the nut on this one only needed small adjustments. Will purchase both again for future builds.
Cant be beat for price and quality.

Over all a nice neck. They needed a lot of work though. All the frets needed to be filed as they were past the fretboard on both sides.

Follow-up

After some finishing and polishing this has turned out being a really good neck. The truss rod has loosened up a bit and the neck is very responsive to adjustments. Intonation on the guitar is perfect. Frets feel very smooth after some fine sanding and polishing. The plastic nut, which is pretty descent, was set a little high but it didn't take much to bring it down to spec. String slots on the nut are perfect. Overall I am very happy with this neck and I will buy more in the future. A little elbow grease really did the trick and this is as nice a neck as any that I've had.

Not great

By

Verified Buyer


I have a lot of experience building Partscasters, used lots of necks varying in quality. This neck is somewhat disappointing. Maybe I got a bad one? The neck I received appears unfinished, in fact it was rough in spots and I had to finish sand with 400 grit sand paper to smooth it out. The 4 mm truss rod nut is more like a 4.25 mm, very sloppy, but the nut turns easy so it shouldn’t strip out anytime soon hopefully. The frets are the biggest disappointment, they are definitely not finished. The crowns of the frets are quite rough and need smoothing and polishing. Fret sprout isn’t too bad but needs work. I think I’ll pass on buying anymore of these necks, I’ll spend a little more on a Fender MIM or wait for a sale on a Warmoth.

It is straight and well finished

The Telecaster neck looks great and seems straight and true. The finish is great and the frets seem very well dressed. We'll see how it works once installed!

Nice Neck - No Flaws Found

By

Verified Buyer


This neck fits the pocket of my Golden Age pine body perfectly. Fret ends are flush to the fretboard edges and will need litte if any smoothing. Machining and finish are close to perfect. I'll post an update after final assembly of the guitar.
