There’s no denying the allure of a roasted maple neck. Resistant to humidity shifts and featuring a gorgeous, dark look, they have more sustain and add a unique note to the instrument’s voice.
This genuine Fender Stratocaster neck is crafted at our Ensenada, Mexico manufacturing facility. Featuring an “early 70’s C” neck profile and 9.5″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, for modern playing feel. 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» grooves for accurate spacing when filing the final string slots. The perfect way to give your Strat® authentic Fender feel, this replacement neck even sports the CBS era logo and a Bullet truss rod on the larger headstock.
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.
