About This Item

Hard rock maple with a thin, vintage tint finish. These necks look and play great!

  • 22 frets
  • Maple or rosewood fingerboard
  • Peghead-adjustable truss rod (for 4mm Allen wrench)
  • Traditional dot inlays
  • 10mm diameter pegholes

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.

Good Right Out of the Box

When I first got this neck, I thought the finish looked a little plastic-y and the tint wasn't very noticeable. However, it's grown on me over time. The finish is quite nice and the subtle tint brings out the wood grain in a nice way, when it catches the light. Frets are not perfect, but dang close. The bevels are even and fret ends are not too sharp. Truss rod adjusts well. I've been playing it for a few months and I'm quite happy.

This was the perfect fit for my twenty year-old Custom Shop body I resurrected for a custom build. Neck fit perfectly, very straight. Good choice, Techs! Just finished the final product; photo attached.

Mitey Mite Vintage Amber Neck for Strat (maple fingerboard)

By

Verified Buyer


I have not mounted this neck to my Strat body yet, but it fits the neck pocket very well. There is a nice, gloss finish, that seems like it will age well with time. The frets seems very level too. My only complaints, are that the neck could have been slightly darker. In the pictures online, they look to be darker, and more vintage looking. Also, after really looking at it,there are some very small, fine craks on the lacquer on the side of a few frets. Not a huge deal though, as I have seen this on many new, high end Fender guitars.

Could be better

The Vintage amber staining is not very amber. Should be darker in color if you’re calling it Vintage amber. They also need to pay a little more attention to the frets, which definitely can be felt sticking out when running your hand up and down the neck.

Very Smooth Action

I purchased the Mighty Mite Amber Neck and wasn't expecting much more than a standard Fender part. Boy, was I surprised. This neck looks great and plays even better. There is something very smooth about it... maybe the frets they are using?
