Replacement Stratocaster Neck
We've been making bodies and necks for many years now, and we have achieved a reputation among builders and luthiers for producing wood products of the highest quality.
We use only hand selected hardwoods from the USA to ensure consistency and quality, and manufacture everything in our own factory. We run a relatively small operation, meaning we can make everything by hand, without the need for expensive CNC machinery, thus keeping the costs relatively low.
All our necks are made from high quality A grade North American Maple to standard Fender dimensions, and are compatible with genuine Fender bodies
We are unable to pre-drill the mounting holes into the back of the neck for you. This is because we cannot guarantee that the holes we drill will match 100% with the holes in your guitar body.
This is a very simple thing to do, and we have created a very easy-to-follow video tutorial on the subject which you can view here
Bought this for a 50s style Strat build using an old Squier Affinity body. I was a bit concerned the smaller body would cause issues with fitting the neck but after a few emails back and forth with Northwest Guitars I felt reassured it would fit, and it does! The quality of this neck is superb. Feels fantastic and the fret work is excellent. Drilling the holes myself was easy so don't let that out you off. The V profile is ideal for the 50s Strat I'm building and I'll definitely be ordering another neck from North-West Guitars for my next build.
I was on the waiting list for these and so glad I was. Excellent neck, frets were good no sharp edges or fret dressing required no hoping or low frets. I did smooth the back of the neck slightly ( 1min ) and polished the frets. Neck shape and fret size perfect. The slightly more modern radius makes playing much easier than the 7.25 neck it replaced as it had a defunct truss rod after 42 years.
Bought this for a Korina-bodied hard tail Strat project. It is an absolutely beautiful neck, not too slim but with a noticeable soft-v profile to it. The satin finish is even and very good to the touch while the frets are really well fitted and finished. On this evidence, Northwest's necks are real gems and I'll buy from them again. Wholeheartedly recommended!
I couldnt put my guitar down after installing this neck. Good solid build. Nicely finished wood. As nice as any Fender neck.
This is a great product very well made and finished
My only criticism is the tiny vintage frets they need to be medium jumbo then it would be the perfect neck with a classic V neck profile
It must be good I’ve bought 3 of them
But have to press decent frets in the neck
