About This Item

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

Choose solid maple or a rosewood fingerboard. All have a single-action truss rod and traditional "skunk stripe" down the back. The string nut is slotted and shaped from PPS plastic with a flat bottom.

  • Thin polyurethane finish
  • 22 frets
  • Maple or rosewood fingerboard
  • Peghead-adjustable truss rod (for 4mm Allen wrench)
  • Traditional dot inlays
  • 10mm diameter pegholes
  • Without mounting holes, so you can drill to fit your body

Peghead is drilled for 6-in-line tuning machines. 10mm-diameter holes fit sealed gear tuners with threaded peghead bushing. See all tuners.

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.

Quality Neck

I was very pleased with this Mighty Mite neck! Though mine needed a fret level and crown, the neck was near perfect and came ready to install and play! I've thoroughly enjoyed the feel of it on my first tele build.

Not amber enough

By

Verified Buyer


Beautiful new maple neck, beautiful lacquer finish. Straight. Nice frets. It just wasn't what I see in my mind when I picture "vintage amber". But still...highly recommended if you're looking for a high quality neck at an affordable price.

Nice Neck

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to replace a neck on a Tele kit build that was too fat for me. It looks great, I love the amber tint, it's straight and plays really nice. It is much thinner than the one I replaced, so it did take some getting used to. It's quite narrow so doesn't have much room at the edges which makes it easy to push the high E off the neck. Just an adjustment I have to be aware of, but someone with big hands might not like it. I had it a while before installing it and after going through a Michigan winter it has a case of fret sprout going on. I don't know how typical that is, I've never dealt with replacement necks before. Overall, I like it, no regrets about buying it.

Nothing Better

I bought a tele neck in 1997 for a project. The neck on this guitar is still perfect to this day. You can’t get better than Stew MAC. Here is a photo of my project. All electronics came from stew Mac and pick guard.

Mighty Mite Tele neck

I ordered this neck on a Wednesday and it arrived the following Monday. This is amazing as I live in the South Island of New Zealand.
The neck fitted perfectly into the pocket and with about an hour’s adjustment to the action it was playing better than I hoped.

Great stuff Stew Mac and thanks for the wonderful catalogue

nice Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard + shorty bridge

Verified Buyer


Great fit, great looking Rosewood, frets are well done, nice upgrade to a MIM Tele. I also used the shorty bridge to mount the pickup directly into the body. Sounds good.

Beautiful neck at a resonable price!

By

Verified Buyer


Just used two of these to keep the cost down and save time on two builds and am thrilled at the finished pieces! Other than replacing the nut with bone, I didn't need to do any tweeking of the frets or finish. They both play smoothly and look fantastic! Thanks Stewmac!

Solid Maple

By

Verified Buyer


I ordered this guitar with the "maple fretboard" to my surprise this is a solid maple neck "no fretboard". I have seen other necks with the maple fretboard and you can see by the wood grain its 2 pieces of wood. But this neck is only 1 piece of wood and as I suspect it resonates great, and it does.
