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 1-5/8" (41.28mm)
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.

Good neck with a little work

By

Verified Buyer


This is the third compound neck from MM i have purchased. I really like the playability and it sets up nicely. The nut on all three have been spot on. The one i just received had a lot of extra fret on the edges, just a little extra file work, trade off was that the frets were very level and all i needed was a polish. Quality is really good and if you dont mind fine tuning you'll have a great neck for years to come. Cant beat the price.

Pretty high action with a Gotoh hardtail bridge

By

Verified Buyer


Like the other reviews said, this neck needs some small setup. The biggest issue for me out of the box was pretty bad fret sprout, but that wasn't a problem to take care of. What HAS been a problem has been the action when paired with my Gotoh hardtail bridge. It's VERY high, about 4 millimeters, even after adjusting both the bridge and the truss rod as made sense.
I'm pretty new to guitar building so there's a high chance I'm just doing something wrong. Gonna take it into a luthier and see if it can be helped.

Excellent necks.  Can be worked into fabulous playing necks and come really good already

These necks are wonderful. Yes they cost more than the chinese ones. But these come basically 90% ready to go. The frets are usually in fairly good order and the compound radius is great on a Stratocaster. I build every guitar with the Mighty Mite necks. They are of very high quality and are a bargain at the price. The rosewood is perfect. I use tinted lacquer on these with waterslides and they come out looking like a real Fender OEM neck. Its really quite nice.

Good neck for the price.

I installed this on a new Fender Professional body. I then had the guitar professionally set up. The Luther had to add a reverse small shim to level the neck to the body. He had to level three frets. The neck fit the body perfectly. All in all I don't think that was out of line. That work would probably be needed on any neck, even a new Fender neck. I would buy again for my next build.

Good for the money

I had to do a little work to it, had some fret sprouts and two high frets but if you read the article about new necks that's to be expected. Once I worked on it, it plays smoothly. Maple is a bitch lighter color than expected but that's ok. Good for the price point.

The best necks you can find out there

By

I bought a Mighty Mite neck again because I have one on my strat for years now and I love it. This time I've chose the compound radius which is even better! Mighty Mite necks are amazing for the price. Before I got a Warmoth compound neck and it was rubbish... the nut is thinner on mighty mite but it holds better because there is wood before and after. So no risk of nut ungluing. The truss road is also better than Warmoth. The wood feeling is great, no sticky hand on varnish or no big frets hurting your hands ... Again, for the price I've never seen better necks. It's definitely worth the Fender Licence they got

Very nice neck narrower lower frets than expected. I built a partscaster with XGP finished body couple of years ago (fender spec body) with matching XGP neck that just wasn't cutting it. Purchased this mightmite neck ( based on price and reviews) it was a huge improvement in playability very fast easy to play neck. neck came with perfectly level frets and a straight neck.. minor neck sprout and frets needed a polish. The nut is cut a little too low on a string or two but planned on replacing anyway with a bone nut. Very happy with this purchase & value it offers-Mike

gerat neck at a great price

I bought this to replace a neck with a snapped truss rod in a S-style kit. It's a beautiful neck, the frets were all clean, very little filing required and where I did it was only to a few fret ends hanging over the edge, no twist to the neck, shipped completely straight, the truss rod moved smoothly in adding a little relief. Nut was well cut with low action near the nut, no tuning issues at all with open chords. Fit in the pocket with no need to level. 10 mm tuner holes, headstock is about a half inch thick.
