This is a vintage 1966 Fender Stratocaster electric guitar neck. Aside from a luthier-installed replacement nut, this neck is in 100% all original condition, including; the original frets, original double-line Kluson Deluxe tuning machines, the original single string tree, original nitrocellulose lacquer finish and original “transitional” decal. This neck also features the first-version large profile headstock shape. Ink-stamped “SEP66” this neck would conveniently be appropriate for either a mid-late ’66 to early ’67 Strat. If your all original instrument has been re-fretted, re-tunered, has had an extra string tree installed, or has been re-finished, this is a must have part to restore your valuable vintage guitar.
As can be seen, this ’66 Stratocaster neck is in very excellent all original condition. There is minimal playing wear on the both the back of the neck and the front of the fingerboard. The original taller profile frets display plenty of life left. The original nitrocellulose clear coat does exhibit typical weather checking and light fading, so this neck would be match a body with very light patina and playing wear. The truss rod screw in very crisp with no indications of having been improperly adjusted, and the truss rod works perfectly and turns with ease.
