Rebuild Your Guitar With a Fender Stratocaster Neck

Fender's Stratocaster is a recognizable and beloved guitar, and has been played by countless musicians for decades. Because of accidents, age, or wear, you may find yourself in the unfortunately position of having to repair or rebuild your Stratocaster when it's broken. Luckily, eBay has you covered with ripped Fender Stratocaster necks for sale that can help you bring your axe back to life.

Basic features and measurements

Fender Stratocaster necks are made of maple and the fretboards are made of rosewood to complement the guitar's maple body. Most necks that you'll find for sale have have 21 frets on them, though there are some versions available with 22 frets. The position inlays may be white dots, black dots, gold dots, or dots of some other color, depending on the model and the year of the guitar from which the neck has been ripped. Some basic measurements include:

  • Nut width: 1.65 inches
  • Fingerboard radius: 9.5 inches
  • Scale length: 25.5 inches

Please check the manufacturer's website for details, as these are only approximate measurements. Not every model that you find for sale will have these exact measurements, but all neck models will have measurements close to these. Make sure that the guitar to which you plan to attach this neck has the proper measurements, particularly in terms of neck and nut width.

Are used or new Stratocaster necks available on eBay?

By their nature, Fender Stratocaster necks have been ripped from the bodies of old Stratocaster guitars and are sold as standalone parts. This means that when you see them for sale on eBay, they will necessarily have been used to at least some degree. However, there are many Fender Stratocaster necks in excellent condition for sale on eBay, so you need not worry about excessive damage or other inadequacies.

Model years and vintage Stratocaster necks for sale

Ripped Fender Stratocaster necks from all sorts of different years can be found for sale. Older necks dating from the 1960s and 1970s are especially coveted because of the enormous number of famous and skilled musicians who made names for themselves playing on Stratocasters in those days.

Genuine 1960s and 1970s-era Stratocaster necks are very rare, because the guitars themselves from those years are quite valuable and it's unlikely that they would be taken apart. Most Stratocaster necks that you'll find for sale, therefore, are typically from models that date from the year 2000 or later. Many of the more recent models have been built to resemble the classic models because of their nostalgic appeal, however.
