If I were to upgrade the Neck on my Tele or Strat to an American made one, will it help the tone?? Or does most of the tone come through the body. Are the MIA Necks just better playability and such?

I would keep the same hardware that was already on it.

It would be like this.

Thanks.

So basically, is it worth upgrading a neck?

strat neck "does not equal" tele neck. and to answer your question, it probably wont make much a difference.


I know that, Im not saying put a strat neck on a tele neck, im talking about upgrading one.

Like Skagasm said, use the money towards an American made one. You could probably get a decent used MIA for $550-$650. I especially would leave the Deluxe Players Strat alone. That's a great guitar the way it sits.

You won't really notice much of a difference. I mean, it kind of depends on the year of the MIA Strat neck. I believe the dimensions have changed over the years.

The sound won't be much different, either. A bolt-on hard maple neck sounds like a bolt-on hard maple neck.
