Shipping Info

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

Please note:
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

    70s strat neck

    Posted by steve ede on 18th Feb 2020

    Purchased this neck as a replacement to a damaged maple neck on my 70s black strat. It arrived promptly and well packaged. I installed the original hardwear, tuners, trees and even routed the heel to fit the original micro neck adjuster plate. I was very impressed with the quality of the wood and the finish on the neck and now installed and setup makes the guitar beautiful to play. When building guitars you need to trust the product, so will certainly be using you guys again.

    Très content de ma commande !

    Posted by JUNQUAS François on 14th Feb 2020

    J'ai commandé un peu à la veuglette sur la foi des commentaires, des photos et de l'aspect sérieux du site. Je suis super content de cette 1er expérience !

    Tout d'abord la commande à été traité ultra rapidement. Ensuite le manche reçu semble vraiment très bien fait avec de bon matériaux. Je l'ai commandé pour changer le manche vieillissant d'une vielle strat des années 90 dont le manche ne me convenait pas ( forme C trop fin).

    Sur la base de ce nouveau manche cela à été un plaisir pour moi de passer 2h afin d'ajuster parfaitement l'alignement sur mon corps de guitare et faire les trous nécessaires (talon et tête pour les pattes des mécaniques non prévu sur ce manche). Me concernant j'ai installer les 2 cordes de mi pour positionner l'angle idéal, mis un serre joint pour maintenir la position puis marqué le talon du manche au travers le corp avec un pointaux. Perçage et roule ma poule !

    J'ai également adoucie légèrement les arrêtes des frettes sur le bord de touches. Il y avait de très léger point d'accroches à adoucir. La planification était impeccable par contre j'ai dû arrondir légèrement certaines frettes car un peu trop aplatie par la planif. Rien de bien méchant à faire avec une simple mini lime du commerce courant et une lime arrondie pour frette type de chez Thotho...

    Voilà une fois installé je n'ai tout simplement plus envie de poser ma guitare! Le touché et le plaisir de jeu est supérieure à ma strato US deluxe !

    Bravo et merci Northwest Guitars ! Surtout ne changez rien !
    Ou si, proposer des manches gauchés et éventuellement un choix de finition sur les vernis.

    A great smooth playing neck.
    If you can imagine a Strat with a Gibson type fingerboard radius, this is it, the very thing I've wanted for years!

    70's Style Strat Neck

    Posted by Tom on 31st May 2019

    Northwest Guitars was recommended by someone on a Facebook forum but I had never had any experience with any of their products. Having now received this neck, I would 100% recommend them to anyone - this neck is actually nicer than the original one on my strat! Beautiful satin finish and just fantastic in every way. Will definitely be ordering from here for any future projects. I just wish I knew about Northwest Guitars sooner!

    very pleased

    Posted by Sam steer on 21st Aug 2018

    I was a bit apprehensive in buying this as there were no reviews yet but on recieving this neck I found it to be very well made. Perfect dimensions and very tidy fret work. Puts my Les Paul's fret work to shame! Great price too
