Replacement Neck for Telecaster

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, unbleached 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 Telecaster 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 Telecaster 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.

Excellent Replacement Telecaster Neck

The guitar neck is well made and was delivered very quickly. The only gripe I have with NWG is that the discount could not be applied at point of sale - a code was sent to my phone which I did not have to hand.

Great fit, great feel

Excellent neck

Over all a very good neck, delivered quickly.

The frets are very well finished and already gleaming when it arrived. I rounded the fret edges, not because they really needed it but because I like them that way. With a fret rocker I found that 2 frets were about one tenth of a millimetre high, nothing like enough to affect playing but a couple of taps with a fret hammer sorted them. No fret sprout at all. So fret-wise, very impressive.

The finished on the neck is pretty thin, just the way I like it. I still used 2000 grit paper to just give it a final polish and it now feels superb.

The fret board is a very dark rosewood, even darker now that it's had some lemon oil to drink and it looks and feels great. I took the time to round the edges of the fretboard - they were very good but I like that played in feel.

The nut is impressive - made of bone and very well made. No sharp edges. The nut slots are cut just a little too high - better that than too low - and I'll have Nigel's Guitar workshop sort them when he gives the guitar the once over.

My one issue was totally my own fault. I didn't read the spec properly and the tuner holes were too big - 10mm, I use 8mm vintage style bushings. No major problem, a set of conversion bushings did the trick. Note to self - read the spec.

So all in all, a successful installation - it looks good and feels great.

Note to NWG - the truss rod adjuster is 4mm, not 4.5 as stated in the specs. You might want to change that :-)
