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.

Great Neck. Great Workmanship. Great Value

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this neck to attach to a Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster body I had here. The neck fit the body perfectly and I now have a very nice playing Stratocaster. I was very impressed by the quality of this neck. The neck itself is shaped very nicely and has a good finish that makes it easy to play. The fretboard is high-quality rosewood and the fretwork is very good. No sharp edges and no raised frets at all. This neck cost me less than half what a comparable Fender neck would cost, and it feels to be better quality.

Comfortable neck, but my one was flawed

By

Verified Buyer


I ordered the maple compound neck and was expecting to work on it a bit so the fact that it had quite a bit of fret sprout and extremely gritty frets when it arrived was par for the course given the price. Some effort with paper and polishing and the neck was in good shape; might have been one small spot level required too.

However, I found that the holes for the machine heads were not equidistant from the slanted side of the headstock (see enlarged headstock photo) - I guess these are done manually (and sloppily?) and the drilling template was off when they made this one. The net result is that on the low E string there is a noticeable angle from the tuner to the nut. It doesn't seem to affect playability but once you know it's there it does tend to bug you.

Despite all that, this neck carve is extremely comfortable to my own hands and I personally love the feel of the satin finish which was flawless. I am very happy with the end result but dropped a star, mainly for the misaligned tuner holes.

PS. The finish on this guitar is natural hand-mixed 'burnt orange' wood dye sealed with tried 'n' true oil (from stewmac)

I chose this neck for the price and the quality, I believe, is very good. The rosewood pattern on mine is very nice. The frets are well done and only required some minor dressing. I knew, in my case, I totally redone the finish only by my own choice. The original finish was fine. I needed to stain and refinish it for my particular build. Very straight. One minor tweak for the neck adjustment. I love it.

A good neck

The finish feels great, the neck is straight, the fret ends are smooth. It fit well into my JTV-69 (although the mounting holes had to shift due to the JTV). I'm happy with the purchase.

high frets

By

Verified Buyer


I was impressed with this when i unboxed and installed it, But once i strung the guitar up I found that this had high frets all over the fretboard, it was unplayable. I had to waste a set of strings and do a fret level and re-crown, which i was trying to avoid buy buying a new neck. After doing all of the work, It is a pretty decent neck

Better than expected

Working on my first build- A Danelectro/Strat hybrid. Trying to go budget, but wasn’t willing to go Chinese eBay cheap on the neck. Project isn’t finished yet, but I’m excited about this neck! In its unfinished state it is nicer than the one on my MIM Strat (a swap will happen if the project guitar doesn’t turn out well). Bang for buck this seems hard to beat.

Great quality neck for the money

Im a part time builder. I make 3 or 4 solid body electrics a year. This was the first time I used a Mighty Mite neck. I used it on a body that originally was made for a neck from another supplier. I committed the cardinal sin and did not double check the neck scale. ( Insert name calling here) Since I made the body originally, I can fix it. That of course is half the fun. This has nothing to do with the excellent quality of the StewMac neck. I will purchase again. No doubt.
Measure twice, cut once, brothers and sisters of the musical wood!

Good neck but need some work

By

Verified Buyer


This neck was installed on a mim strat body heel fit the pocket perfectly without modification. I did run into some issues with the nut and frets. The string slots in the nut were cut too deep from the factory so the entire nut had to be replaced. Not a big deal but why include a nut if it's not useable? Out of the box the fret ends were very sharp and very noticeable and it also needed a fret level. These aren't really big issues especially considering the price just be aware when you order one of these necks that you will at minimum need to some fret work. That aside this is a very fast comfortable neck.
