50's Modified Esquire Neck, 22 Narrow Tall Frets, 9.5", U Shape, Roasted Maple
There's no denying the allure of a roasted maple neck. Resistant to humidity shifts and featuring a gorgeous, dark look, they have more sustain and add a unique note to the instrument's voice. This roasted maple Modified Esquire neck has the back shape of an early 50's Esquire but with a flatter fingerboard radius and larger frets for modern playability.
Fender replacement necks are made at Fender manufacturing facilities to the same specifications as those used on our instruments. This Ensenada, Mexico-made Esquire neck features a maple fingerboard, a 9.5" radius and 22 narrow tall frets. The one-piece roasted maple neck has a thick early 50's "U" profile with a smooth satin urethane finish on the front and back of the neck. The headstock has a gloss finish with an authentic "Esquire" decal to complete the classic look.
The bone nut is pre-slotted with "pilot" string location grooves to make spacing a breeze when performing the final string slot filing. For true Fender authenticity, it's also serialized and stamped, with genuine headstock logo decal.
This replacement neck is for a Fender or Squier® by Fender guitar.
Because Fender genuine replacement necks have not been mounted to guitar bodies, nut slots must be cut by qualified personnel. Other installation processes may be required, such as fret work, fitting the neck to the neck pocket, and other instrument setup procedures. Your local FMIC Authorized Service Center can install genuine replacement necks; find Authorized Service Center locations near you in the "Support" section of fender.com.
