If you are a first time builder or an experienced professional you know the value of building your instrument on a solid foundation. The USA made Custom Shop Strat body is beautiful, high quality and made to spec. The Mighty Mite neck is manufactured under license by Fender. The materials and quality level meet the standards set by Fender. Using these high quality materials will give you the sweet tone and sustain the Strat is known for.
The neck is made from Canadian rock hard Maple with the famous Walnut "skunk stripe" on the back. Your choice of a Rosewood or Maple fingerboard. And the option to upgrade to compound radius! The truss rod is adjustable at the headstock for easy setup. The neck is finished with a semi gloss finish.
This kit allows you to mix and match the pickguard and pickups. Choose your pickguard color and pickups you want. The pickguard will be pre-wired with the pickups of your choice. No need to figure out the wiring, it's all done!
