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

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)


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.

All good

Fret ends could have been a tiny bit better but no complaints really.

Finish on the back of the neck is a bit thick and glossy. Some might like to sand it off.

Much needed upgrade from kit neck!

By

Verified Buyer


I built a Thinline Tele kit from the Fretwire a few months ago, and the only parts left from the kit were the body, neck, and bridge. Decided to get this Mighty Mite neck to replace the neck that came with the kit because it was a little fatter than I like. I was a little nervous going with a cheaper neck because I imagined it would be pretty hit or miss, and I really didn't want to have to buy more tools to do fret work. Neck shipped quickly and within a couple of days of ordering it was installed on my guitar. The difference is amazing. The guitar plays better than my MiM Fender Telecaster now. I was planning to replace the nut with an extra bone nut I had around, but I saw there was a chip in it, so I left the original nut on, and so far I haven't had any issues with binding or intonation (I also replaced the bridge with a Schaller non-trem rolling bridge from Stewmac, so I'm sure that helps.) Overall, I am super happy with how the guitar came out. And now I'm just a body short of being able to piece together another one since I've got all the parts that came with the kit lying around.

Strings too close to the edge, otherwise ... great!

I measures and compared with my U.S. Fender Tele (60th Anniversary).
This M.M. neck is beautiful but slightly narrower by around 1/16th or so.
I'll try making a new nut to see if that will stop me slipping off the fretboard's edge.
I may prefer this slightly-narrower neck for using my thumb on chords;
I just hope a new nut will resolve this concern.

Mighty Mite Tele Neck

Very well made neck. It fit perfectly on my Fender Blackwood Tele. I found the original tele maple neck too "sticky". The Rosewood is much better for doing bends. I would recommend a fret polish before installing it.

I really like this one...

Ordered a Tele neck in vintage amber and it arrived today. Another reviewer complained that the amber is a little too light. Yeah, it kinda is but no biggy. It could be a little darker but I'm not building it for Eric Clapton so I think it's gonna be okay. Matter of fact, sent a few pix to my client and he's very enthusiastic. Additionally, where I've had Might Mite necks in the past with real fret sprout, this one's butter smooth. Saves me a complete fret job. I don't like the way the factory in Indonesia cuts their tangs but as long as this neck behaves we're good. First time my customer complains of sprout, I'll take 'em all out and go back in with some properly trimmed tangs. Overall, very happy with this neck.

Look good to me. Fit my fender Highway 1, with a little sanding in the neck pocket.

Love this neck

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this for my parts caster project and fit my Squire bullet perfectly (had to sand the pocket for about a minute for perfect fit, but still easy work), love the feel of the neck and the frets are very well done, still had a little finishing work, but nothing I wouldn't normally do when touching up my guitar. The wood is beautiful and sounds great. I did change the plastic nut out for a real bone nut, but that's my preference. I do agree with other reviews it would be nice if they put a better quality nut on, but I have them on hand so no issue. I used fender locking tuners and they work great you can put any machine heads on. By this neck of you don't want to spend fender money on your project or makes a great replacement neck.

Good neck

Got this as a replacement to the Stewmac Tele Kit neck as the original was warped. Neck is 1/8 short in thickness for the neck pocket depth so we determined it needed a shim - which customer support forgot to include. I ended up using a spare neck plate as a shim. Has to sand off the area that drops into the neck pocket to get a good fit - finish made it too thick. Was able to dial in the setup. Tele now plays like a champ. Will be replacing the nut with Tusq.

Good value

Wasn’t expecting perfection at this price, so a little damage to the finish around the heel-end of the fingerboard, and 3 flecks of black plastic under the poly in the head stock were things I could live with. Other than that, the neck is made from two beautiful pieces of wood, the rosewood is nice and dark, the inlay work and fret work are well done, and the finish, other than the two defects, is fine. The vintage tint is not quite as dark as I was thought it would be, but I expect it will darken in couple of years and look just right. It plays well, nothing wrong there. The old neck was fairly flat and fast, and this one is maybe a hair slower if I really pay attention. Overall I’m happy with this neck.
