Mighty Mite Neck for Tele 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 frets are nicely finished, and the 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.

More specifications:
Scale length 25-1/2" (647.70mm)
Width at nut 1-5/8" (41.28mm)
Width at 21st fret 2-3/16" (55.56mm)
Fretboard radius 9-1/2" (241.30mm)
Fretwire .045" high x .095" wide (1.14mm x 2.41mm)
Fret count 21
Approximate heel length 3-5/8" (92.07mm)
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.

Beautiful neck

Fell in love with the feel of this neck. No sharp frets, fretboard is gorgeous, no finish flaws either. Beautiful

Not Bad, Could Be Better

Bought this to replace a maple fretboard neck on a Highway One. Fit was nice and tight and neck radius is good for an older guy with wonky hands.
My main issue is the placement of the nut. It seems that it's somewhat closer to the edge on the high side and has quite a bit of room on the bass side. When I'm playing, the high E will sometimes slip off the neck. Guess I'll be replacing it sooner than later.

I bought this for an Esquire build. Really nice and thin neck. Just make sure you buy conversion bushings for your tuning machines.

Stew Mac: Was pleased with the returns process and ease to do so. Thank you!

Mighty Mite Neck(s):
Originally had to send back the initial neck which had issues with the workmanship of the nut, excessive fret end sprout, and was a one piece neck instead of two (maple). Stew Mac had exchanged it for a new neck (Rosewood) and honored the original sale price at the time of purchase.
The replacement neck was exactly what I needed. This was to replace an out-of-tune E-Series Korean Squire Tele neck from the 90's. I was not interested in trying nut-compensation.
the new neck thankfully fit perfectly in the neck pocket. It only needed to be touched up for light fret-end sprout and to have the frets polished. Added the Fender 2-pin staggered locking tuners to complete the project.

For the price, I think the neck is, for the most part, worth it and would recommend it to others.
You'll most likely need to tweak the finer details to your liking.

The frets were a little sharp, but that’s easily fixed. Compared to prices from other sources, this is a good deal. The telecaster plays well now!
