Fender American Special Stratocaster Neck, 22 Jumbo Frets, Rosewood
Fender replacement necks are made at Fender manufacturing facilities to the same specifications as those used on our instruments. Contours, finishes, fret sizes and all other materials are designed and crafted in genuine Fender fashion. U.S.-made necks have detailed frets, satin finishes, hand-rolled fingerboard edges and a "modern C" profile for comfortably smooth playability.
The nut is pre-slotted with "pilot" string location grooves to make spacing a breeze when performing the final string slot filing. For true Fender authenticity, it's also serialized and stamped, and features a '70s-era headstock logo decal.
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.
