Crafted at our Ensenada, Mexico manufacturing facility, this genuine vintage-style 3-bolt Stratocaster® guitar neck features a comfortable «U»-shaped profile and 7.25″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets. Although this neck features a 3-bolt design typical of ’70s Strats, only the bottom two neck mounting pilot holes are available, giving you the flexibility to use this neck with many different guitar bodies.
The synthetic bone nut is pre-slotted with «pilot» string location grooves to make spacing a breeze when performing the final string slot filing, while a gloss urethane finish on the back offers smooth playability.
This replacement neck is for a Fender or Squier® by Fender guitar.
Because Fender genuine replacement necks have not been mounted to guitar bodies, nut slots must be cut by qualified personnel. Other installation processes may be required, such as fret work, fitting the neck to the neck pocket, and other instrument setup procedures. Your local FMIC Authorized Service Center can install genuine replacement necks; find Authorized Service Center locations near you in the “Support” section of fender.com.
