About This Item

Shaped, inlaid, fretted and finished—Hard rock maple with a thin, vintage tint finish. These necks look and play great!

Choose solid Maple, Indian Rosewood, or Indian Laurel 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, Indian Rosewood, or Indian Laurel 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.

Specifications
Scale length 25-1/2" (647.70mm)

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)

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.

Just what it needed

By

Verified Buyer


I modified everything on my 2020 Affinity Squier Strat, new pickups, new pots, wiring, switch, switchcraft jack, brass trem block, bridge, saddles, locking tuners, everything except the thin neck. Even after I modified it I never fell in love with it because of the stock neck. That’s where the mighty mite comes in. First off I love maple necks, which the stock neck was not. Second, the playability greatly increased. That might be an understatement. I love everything about this guitar now. It’s hard to put it down, (I have to make time for my Fenders) . The mighty mite saved my modification project and gave me my first partscaster. I highly recommend this for a Squier neck upgrade. Plus you get an extra fret!

Nearly good as supposed to...

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this one and one for my tele. Tele neck was excellent, but in this strat neck every fret were too long and required little effort and work to get it finished properly. As a result of that, the original finish wasn't no longer "original". However, playability is good, nothing wrong with that, but still...

Neck fit perfectly and I had to do nothing to the frets. It feels good and plays true all the way up the neck. Great Job

Mighty Mite Necks

By

Verified Buyer


I think Mighty Mite Necks are high quality necks
The fret work is excellent I have never had any intonation problems with any of these necks and I have installed them on stock and aftermarket strat bodies.
As far as playability I see no difference between these necks and Mexican Fender necks. Installing a Mighty Mite neck is one of the few ways you can save a buck on a build without sacrificing quality.

Replace a twisted neck

Just a great replacement, feels better than the original neck with a real smooth finish.
Just didn't want to pay $300 for a neck and for having it installed.

Played fine after some work

By

Verified Buyer


The neck had some quality control issues, some of the lacquer was chipped and the fret sprout was huge, and 2 frets were tall, but after addressing those issues the neck played pretty well I would say it's not fender mexican quality but squier classic vibe.
The packing was a little sloppy so be careful with overseas shipping, after all I'm happy with the purchase but it needed some work.

Replacement for a wd. Neck that sucked

By

This neck was far superior in fit and finish. I was able to achieve way better action . Not to mention the tone with rosewood is so much better. I highly recommend this.

Excellent fit for project rebuild

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this to replace the neck on my first electric guitar, a mid 60's Japanese built Kent, Strat-style. Decided to resurrect it as a winter project. After reviewing the specs on-line, it seemed like it would be a good replacement for the original neck which had seen better days (seriously worn-down frets & fretboard, and no truss rod). Turned out to be a perfect fit, just a little shimming required. Seems to be a quality piece of hardware and a worthwhile upgrade toward making my 55 year old friend playable again.

Very Happy, A BIG improvement

I've never gotten into switching necks but boy am I glad I did. The stock neck on my Squire wasn't bad at all but I couldn't get the action as low as I wanted so decided to experiment with a Mighty Mite. I've never used any of their products before.

I took my time and was very careful. After I installed it the intonation was practically perfect before any adjustments were made to the bridge or neck. It's a bit heavier than the stock neck but the balance of the instrument is a bit more neck heavy but it doesn't nose dive.

The fretboard is a bit wider and I like it better than the stock neck, the finish is way nicer and the action was immediately lower (without buzzes) than the stock neck.

I've owned several "real" Strats including a '58 body with a '63 neck as well as brand new (in the 70's) and this is the nicest playing Strat of any kind I've ever owned or played in a store.

The Stew Mac service was excellent.

All this and I get a bonus extra fret which is way cool!

No need to go get a "real" Strat, this is one of the best upgrades I have ever done or had done by a luthier.

Nice Neck

By

I'm "souping up" a Squier start. So far I've got a Loaded pickguard with EMG active pick ups. new saddles for the bridge that have rounded edges so you don't scape up your right palm while playing, locking tuners, and of course the maple neck/finger board. Just taking this thing out of the box and holding it in your hands, you can feel the smoothness of the frets ends and the smooth finish on the back of the neck. it was a breeze to put in and needed no shims at all.Perfectly straight. Would buy again in a minute........
