A really, really nice neck ! With one caveat.
Dave Francis 25.04.2022
This is a really, really nice MIM neck. With just one thing to watch out for.
I'm building a Partscaster at the moment and wanted something a little different than rosewood or Pau Ferro. Naturally, at such a price, I thought I'd give a roasted maple neck a try.

I don't usually like maple necks as the high gloss finish on the rear of the neck is something I don't enjoy. However, this neck has a wonderful satin finish, sanded perfectly. Really nicely done, the jumbo frets are all perfect, can't complain there. Fit was perfect with an aftermarket body.

One thing I would warn potential buyers of is the fact that this neck comes with an uncut nut. The nut is marked (actually barely marked on the top two strings) and far, far too high. This meant I had to scrabble around trying to find a set of nut files. Nut files aren't cheap, and you only use them a few times, so bear this in mind.

The nut was far too high as well. After some fruitless filing - a lot of fruitless filing - I decided to replace the nut with a Tusq one. Of course, when you replace a nut, if you want a good setup, you still need recourse to a set of nut files.

I'm really, really happy with this neck and can recommend it to anyone, but it's not a drop in replacement (hence one star off) - you'll need to be experienced in cutting nuts, and they're never easy to get right. The rest of the setup went perfectly, you'll need a 3/16" Allen key for the neck relief adjustment as this is an MIM neck and not the usual 1/8" US pattern.

There are some out there who claim that roasted maple is more brittle to work with, and can easily ding or dent: my tuners went on fine and fitting twin string trees presented no problem, in fact, it's really nice to work with.

Highly recommended (with the above caveat) and unbeatable at the price. If you want a high quality, well priced, slightly different neck, you'll be very happy with this one.

Extremely disappointed
mciksfonjgvrs 20.10.2021
Chip in the neck on the 22nd fret and nut is so poorly cut that strings keep popping out when bending strings. Im not sending it back though, getting a luthier to fix it because the neck is still comfy but wow the nut is badly cut

Gute Arbeit
Markus8024 06.11.2021
Ich hatte das Problem, dass der Griffbrettradius meiner Fender Strat mit 7.25 Grad,beim Seitenziehen in den oberen Lagen, doch öfters Probleme machte. (Outfretting) Deshalb habe ich mir den gerösteten Hals mit einem 12er Radius gekauft. Kann nur sagen, dass ich voll zufrieden bin. Passte sofort in die Körnung. Stimmung perfekt. (Natürlich muß die gleiche länge des Halses und die Bundanzahl mit dem alten Hals übereinstimmen.)
Seitenziehen ideal auch in den höheren Lagen. Der Hals ist ein bißchen dünner als ein Vintage Hals, aber dadurch auch für Schredder geeignet. Diese Hälse aus Mexiko sind perfekt verarbeitet und optisch ebenfalls eine schöne Alternative. Auch Preisgünstig. Deshalb von mir eine eindeutige Kaufempfehlung.

Manche de remplacement de belle qualité en érable torréfié
Eric Blake 03.02.2022
Acheté en remplacement d'un manche érable profil C radius 9,5 sur Fender Strat Player.
Celui-ci a un profil plat ovale et un radius de 12 qui le rendent très agréable à jouer, de même que l'arrière du manche satiné qui glisse parfaitement.
La touche vernie et l'aspect érable torréfié sont très beaux.
Les bémols concernent les finitions qui ne sont pas irréprochables : le bord des frettes nécessitait un polissage et la planimétrie présente des défauts également.
Donc à 300 euros + passage chez le luthier, l'investissement n'est pas négligeable.
