Fender vs. Mighty Mite replacement guitar neck

Fender Standard Stratocaster guitar neck

Not a lot of money separates these two, but one might be better than the other depending on what you're looking for.

Above is a Fender Standard Stratocaster neck. This is the neck most go for simply because it is the lowest priced new Strat neck from Fender - especially after seeing how much a Fender American Professional neck costs.

The Mighty Mite neck on the other hand is about $50 to $60 cheaper than the Fender Mexico neck.

The Mighty Mite neck is better for those who want custom tuners

In the end, this reason is what makes the Mighty Mite the preferred neck to go with.

Fender necks come delivered from the factory with pre-cut holes on the back of the headstock intended for genuine Fender tuners.

Fender Standard Stratocaster neck back

If you're going to install Fender Standard machine heads there, then sure, the Fender neck is the one to go with. However, if you're going to install a different type of tuner that has a different mounting screw location back there, then the Mighty Mite neck is the better choice.

It should also be noted that the Mighty Mite necks have 10mm diameter pegboard holes, meaning a tuner set like the Wilkinson E-Z LOK will fit without a problem.

True, you don't get the Fender logo on a Mighty Mite neck. But since there are no pre-drilled holes on the back of the headstock, you get to make the "cleanest" possible tuner installation when you drill your own for your tuning machine of choice.
