Replacement Neck for Stratocaster

Northwest Guitars necks are made from hand selected, A grade North American Maple to ensure outstanding performance. Crafted for ultimate compatibility, our necks are prefect replacements for genuine Fender models, including MIA, MIM, MIJ & Squier. This makes our electric guitar necks great as an upgrade to your existing guitar, a replacement part, or as an addition to your latest brand new guitar build project

Standard Specs

To ensure easy installation and compatiblity we've made our necks with a 55.5mm (2 3/16”) wide curved heel, so you'll be sure of a nug fit in the neck pocket of your prized Strat!

We've installed pre-slotted, flat-bottom bone nuts as standard, so great tone is assured (we dont glue these in so they're easy to pop out and shape should you feel the need).

Our headstock shapes are reminiscent of classic guitar models, but are original to NWG.

The Northwest Guitars replacement Stratocaster neck, will give you the same performance and playability of the branded equivalent, at a fraction of the cost.

Check out the specifications tab for a full list of the individual specifications for this neck

North American Maple

Our North American Maple is light-coloured hardwood, fine-textured and incredibly shock resistant. Maple is used as a neck wood by the majority of major guitar manufacturers because of its robust nature and its signature bright and snappy tone. At Northwest Guitars we only use the highest quality Maple for our guitar necks, ensuring you get a top quality product.

About us

We've been making guitar necks for many years now, and our Stratocaster neck is the go to for professional luthiers and hobbyist builders alike. Because they are manufactured in our own factory, we are able to keep costs relatively low, whilst still ensuring a top quality product. Everything is made by hand, offsetting the need for expensive CNC machinery, allowing us to pass on the saving to our customers.

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 be a 100% match with those on your guitar body.

Drilling holes for guitar necks is quite simple to do, and you can find an easy to follow tutorial here.

Stratocaster neck

These necks from northwest guitars are very good for the price and over the years I’ve had a few from them the service and delivery is always top notch. But that said the last few necks I’ve purchased I’ve had to do some fret dressing as there was some high fret’s and needed levelling.before I could play them.but I’ve bought more expensive necks and still need some work doing to them.but overall these necks are made to a very high standard.

Gary Nattrass
Superb quality and service!

Bought a stratocaster neck for a parts guitar and jave been well impressed with the quality and speed of delivery! I have had numerous necks over the years and this one is the best value and fitted perfectly with minimal fret dressing and adjustment! I didn’t even have to touch the nut and just a slight turn of the truss rod to suit my personal set up!

Alexander Francis
Decent value but work needed

Decent quality neck. Roughly half of the frets were level so you’ll need to level, round and polish the frets. The nut will also need to filed if you’re not planning on replacing it. Thickness of the wood on the headstock is thinner than a standard strat neck by Fender. At this price you should expect to have to do some work to get it really playable. It’s a good neck as a starting point to mod :-)
