Fender's® original Strat® and Tele® necks had 21 frets, while Gibson® necks had 22. In order to bring this extra range to Fender®-style instruments, replacement necks with a 22nd fret on a short fretboard extension were developed.
The modern-style 22 fret fretboard is standard on our Modern and Vintage/Modern series necks.
The vintage-style 21 fret fretboard is optional on Modern and Vintage/Modern necks. Vintage necks are offered with 21 frets only.
For those who desire a full two-octave neck Warmoth offers a 24 Fret Extension fretboard. This custom feature is $25.00 extra and is available on Modern construction necks only.
24 Fret Extension necks interfere with standard neck pickup placement, making it necessary to relocate the pickup rout. On flat top bodies we can reposition the neck pickup rout towards the bridge just beyond the 24 fret fretboard extension. This custom feature is $35 extra.
A common concern with 24 fret replacement necks is that of access. Our Soloist body has a deeper cutaway than a Strat® body, allowing quicker access to the upper frets:
When installing a neck with a fretboard overhang it is critical to ensure the overhang has enough clearance to accomodate your pickguard. Failure to do so could result in seperation of the fretboard from the neck and is not covered under warranty. Use the info below to assist you in choosing the correct parts.
