    Lindy Fralin Tele 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.

      Had a thinline Tele which was a gift from and old friend, but sadly the neck just did not hold up well and the truss rod was locked up – so after a quick consult with my area tele-guru, C.P., he steered me to Lindy’s place.
      This neck has made the guitar playable and fun, again. Great feel, good sustain and tone, as well.
      Lindy Fralin and all his associates are a wonderful resource for all of us who want to get just a little bit more out of what we have. Thanks for what ya’ll do.

      I bought a used Fralin telecaster neck on Reverb, seller said it was for a project he never completed, so it was sold at a discount – I bought it for a future project (still need a body). It feels great, the frets seem good with enough height for bending, although I would have preferred 6105 medium-jumbo size this is more traditional. It needs a nut and tuners – already fitted some vintage-style slot-shaft tuners, and bought a graph-tech nut. I’ve had a boat neck on a Nash Broadcaster before, and it was too big for me, but this neck feels great – I can shave it down more if needed. Looking forward to buying a stratocaster neck from Fralin next, and shaving it down to a soft-V that fits my hand perfectly. This is the way to go, it’s so inexpensive that even if you have to pay a tech to do the frets, nut, and drill mounting holes, it’s still under $400 for one of the best necks for telecasters and stratocasters (original 50’s vibe), at least what I love. Thank you Fralin, now I need some of your telecaster and stratocaster pickups, which together with your necks will make very tuneful guitars – thank you!!

      Great neck. Fits my hands, had plans to take it down a bit but it just feels right and will leave it as is. Put it on a tele I have since the 80’s that is MIJ. Looks like it is basswood but it is mellow and this neck seems to add more sustain and it will bark when needed. Thanks for the design. Works for me.

      This is the 2nd Lindy fralin tele neck I’ve bought, this is going on a thinline body ,the other is on a 52 style . Can’t say enough about how much I like these necks they feel &sound great & the neck contour at head stock is way cool !

      I have had one on my pine tele for a few years now and I still absolutely love it! This neck was made for Broadcasters and other teles that feel more at home with a chunky neck. It is big but still very comforatble and easy to play. I need to order a second one soon…

    6. Justin Levitt

      Fantastic neck!! I got one a while back and it was an absolute pleasure to install and fit onto my original telecaster body. The neck is comfortable and feels great 🙂

      I bought a Lindy Fralin Tele neck two years ago and I like it quite a bit. Lindy recommended using a “light, resonant body” (my Tele body is made of pine) “and you will have the feel and sound of the earliest vintage guitars”.

      I paired the neck with some Fralin pickups and I’ve been happy with the results. The guitar resonates like crazy and sounds like a combination between Keef’s “Micawber” and Roy Buchanan’s “Nancy”. The guitar growls like Keef’s but it will also twang and squeal like Roy’s and I’ve been more than happy with results.

      The only con side is the guy who assembled my guitar said he needed to spend a good amount of time dressing the frets but that’s to be expected.

      This is a “he-man” neck so if you’ve played real vintage guitars from the 50’s then you will feel right at home with this. Players used to modern necks may be surprised by how chunky it is but after about a week’s worth of playing you’ll feel right at home.
