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 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.

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.

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

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.

Needs a fret dressing

By

Verified Buyer


The wood is excellent and was well shaped, it fit the neck pocket of an American Standard tele body perfectly without sanding, and the nut was well installed and high enough quality that I didn't need to replace it (a pleasant surprise). However, this neck showed up in bad need of a full fret dressing - they stuck far enough out of the sides of the neck to slice fingers. Still, after a $40 filing by a local tech, I am pleased with this neck.

Maple Tele Neck

Bought a neck from China for $68 for a project tele, the truss rod didn't work. So off to Stew-Mac to save the project. Neck is great—not a MusicKraft, but a fraction of the price. Will be doing a quick leveling and recording, good to go.

Great necks! Only gripe is the frets on the T-style protrude and need dressing- 5 min. job though. Always fit perfect and look/function great!

Very nice neck

I purchased this for a Telecaster, after a previously purchased neck didn't float my boat. Very nice indeed, no problems what so ever...frets perfectly level, nut cut fine, great profile. Thanks!

Variable quality

By

Verified Buyer


These necks are pretty good, I've bought three of them. They vary in heel size, not much but enough to need shaving sometimes.Fret ends were all proud on last one, I figure it shrunk a little. Not bad for the price.
