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.

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!

A very nice Strat neck. I like it fine and am going to order another soon. And priced right that a retired man like myself can afford.

Great neck

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.

Appears well made for a nice price

I'd been eying these for a project I've wanted to do for some time. When StewMac dropped $30 off of the already fairly low price, that triggered my purchase. I have not had a chance to install it yet. Appears well made. As with all necks that make it out here to the desert, the frets were sticking out over the edges of the finger board. A couple of Netflix movies worth of filing and tweaking has pretty much cured that. I can't wait to see how much difference a compound radius makes.

Perfect neck to finish a custom build. No work needed on frets or the nut. I will be buying these for future builds.

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!

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!
