WD® Licensed By Fender® Replacement 21 Fret Neck For Telecaster® Fat D

Our newest Fender® Licensed neck design is based off an early 1950's Broadcaster® to give you a real fat D-shaped contour and fill your hand. It is been called a boat-neck, a baseball bat neck but commonly referred to as a 50s fat neck. It has a 10 in. radius, heel adjust truss rod, 1 5/8 in. nut width and comes unfinished so you can apply the finish you want. It is a one-piece maple neck with black dots. The heel is proper Fender spec 2 3/16 in. width. The 21 frets are a Vintage Jumbo Polymet 4049. The thickness at the first fret is a whopping .97 in. and 1.00 in. at the 12th fret for super comfort. The peghole bore size is vintage 11/32 in. and accommodate a vintage spec tuner with push-in bushing. The nut is not included.

All necks require a final level, crown, and polish and may need to be fine-tuned to your instrument and playing preferences. Your new neck should be carefully inspected prior to installation and/or modification as necks are rendered non-returnable once altered. Due to the organic nature of wood each neck is considered unique and may have minor variations in grain or finish from those pictured. WD does not sell what is commonly referred to as seconds or blems. Due to the volume of necks that we sell WD does not hand-select necks based on appearance or weight. WD neck heels are made to Fender USA dimensions and tolerance, this may not account for neck pocket shrinkage or expansion over time. Some neck pocket modification may be required.

WD recommends that if you are not familiar with replacement neck installation that you contact a qualified luthier or repair shop.
