Crafted in the same facility as our U.S.-made instruments, the Channel-Bound Stratocaster® Neck combines a uniquely elegant aesthetic with a distinctively smooth fret-hand feel. The “channel-bound” fingerboard is a unique Fender innovation whereby the fingerboard is directly inlaid into the neck, eliminating the side seams while combining slick style with astounding fret-hand feel. The 9.5”-14” compound-radius rosewood fingerboard is more rounded towards the nut for easy chording, while the flatter radius in the upper register allows wide bends without fretting out.
The comfortably rounded fingerboard edges and “Modern C”-shaped profile are ideal for any playing style while the medium jumbo frets offer a familiar playing feel. The synthetic bone nut is pre-slotted with “pilot” string location grooves to make spacing a breeze when performing the final string slot filing.
This replacement neck is for a Fender or Squier® by Fender Stratocaster.
