Mighty Mite Neck for Fender Bass

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 20 frets are nicely finished, and the nut is slotted and 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 truss rod with a 4mm adjusting nut at the peghead. We recommend Allen Truss Rod Wrench for adjusting neck relief.

The 23/32"-diameter pegholes fit our Adjustable Tension Bass Tuners.

More specifications:
 
Scale length 34" (863.60mm)
 
Width at nut 1-5/8" (41.28mm)
 
Width at 20th fret 2-1/2" (63.50mm)
 
Fretboard radius 9-1/2" (241.30mm)
 
Fretwire .042" high x .105" wide (1.07mm x 2.67mm)
 

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.

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.

These necks are made for us by Mighty Mite®, and have peghead shapes licensed by Fender®.
