    Lindy Fralin Strat Neck FEATURES:

    We’ve all heard the “magic” is in the wood and I have come to believe this. Get a light, resonant body and you will have the feel and sound of the earliest vintage guitars.

    “To my ears a bigger neck improves the tone of most guitars. The wound strings get brighter and the plain strings get more solid. After buying several “baseball bat” necks and then shaping them between gigs a little at a time I have come up with a neck shape that is big but comfortable.” ~ Lindy Fralin

    For those who want to further shape these necks or take the finish off the back, I recommend setting the guitar up and playing it for a while then removing a small amount of wood then playing it some more. I used the Stewart-McDonald scraper, then 400, 600, grit sandpaper followed by spray sanding sealer or satin nitrocellulose and let it dry overnight.

      Fantastic neck, I’m not going to shave it down, love it as-is.

      ¨The neck is a vital part of the sound. People think that the body is the most important thing, but it´s not really. If you put a bad neck on a good body the guitar will sound bad, whereas if you put a good neck on an average or even a poor body it will work.¨ Rory Gallagher

      After experimenting with different quality parts on my partscaster strat (neck, tremolo, pickups, strings) I still wasn´t satisfied with the result. The guitar played well, sounded oke, but didn´t inspire much to anything more than collecting dust after a while. So I ordered a Fralin neck as a last attempt to put some life and character and soul into it.
      And I was overwhelmed!! It turned the guitar into the real thing. Woody, stable, tight basses, bright high´s, spanky, warm and full. Everything I like in a strat. Great! We all know that the proof of an inspiring instrument is the fact that you can´t put it down and keeps on putting a smile on your face everytime you hit the strings. It does and is by far my favorite electric guitar now. Love it.

      Great neck and good value. It is a full, big neck, so know that going in. There is also quite a bit of luthier work to do. Nut installation, finish removal from frets, rolling the edges, and most importantly (and difficult for some) drilling the mounting holes. I had no trouble doing the work. If you are unfamiliar with the techniques required, just have your local luthier finish it up. The overall quality is great, and Lindy’s customer service staff was very helpful!

      Well , like i said in my review on the tele style neck from lindy ( 2 jan 2021 ) , i really love these necks . My fender american original 50’s strat has an soft v shape neck on it , wich i also really like , so i didn’t want to replace that neck , but lately i bought an squire bullet strat wich i then upgraded with fender tex mex pu’s and offcourse an lindy frailin strat neck , and yes , it play’s and sounds great ! I bought the neck at the same place where i also bought the tele neck : Haar guitars in the netherlands . My tele and “parts” strat are keepers now , wich has a lot to do with these great necks from lindy , i’m even thinking about selling the expensive fender strat now : ) .

      I like the action of this neck but the tele neck has a detter grip action for lead but still feels good fretting is good not much file work needed

      I put mine on a crappy plywood bodied ‘Silvertone’ knockoff and with y’alls vintage hots, it woke that thing up like crazy!!!! Now getting an ash body ready for it. Look out!!
