Replacement Tele guitar neck, vintage style.
Please note that this Tele comes completely fretted and with the nut slot already cut. However, the nut itself does not come with the neck and needs to be ordered separately. Neck mounting holes are not drilled. The tuning machine holes are drilled to take vintage tuners such as our vintage Kluson tuners or similar. For contemporary tuners like Sperzel, Gotoh, Grover, the holes in the headstock will need to be widened to 10mm.
All necks require a final level, crown, and polish and may need to be fine-tuned to your instrument and playing preferences. Your new neck should be carefully inspected prior to installation and/or modification as necks are rendered non-returnable once altered. Due to the organic nature of wood each neck is considered unique and may have minor variations in grain or finish from those pictured. WD does not sell what is commonly referred to as seconds or blems. Due to the volume of necks that we sell WD does not hand-select necks based on appearance or weight. WD neck heels are made to Fender USA dimensions and tolerance, this may not account for neck pocket shrinkage or expansion over time. Some neck pocket modification may be required.
WD recommends that if you are not familiar with replacement neck installation that you contact a qualified luthier or repair shop.

Width of neck at nut slot - 42mm
Width of neck at heel (where it joins the body) - 56mm
Depth of neck at heel (excluding fingerboard) - 19mm
