Warmoth Custom Guitar Parts - Carved/Flat Top

Number of Frets

Standard 22 Fret

(Vintage/Modern Tele® neck shown)


A fretboard with 22 frets has been considered the industry "standard" for the last few decades and sports the typical 1/4" overhang off the end of the heel.

21 Fret Option

(Vintage/Modern Tele® neck shown)


A fretboard with 21 frets is considered a "vintage" spec; the fretboard is cut flush with the neck heel. There may be one less fret to play on but taking the pickguard off and on is much easier without the fretboard overhang in the way.
