Hi everyone. I am currently in the process of replacing the neck of my guitar. I currently own a Stagg stratocaster and wish to get a new maple neck as i prefer the feel of them.

However, I am a little uncertain on how to attach it. I have looked closely for the ones I shall attempt to buy for the correct number of frets, length etc. But when i recieve it, should i just bolt it on straight away, or is there anything i need to measure or do? Thanks

Well. first measure the neck, nut to the 12th fret, multiply that by 2 if you get 25.5 then you should be alright as logn as the stagg neck pockets are the same kind as regular strats

Traditionally, Strat neck pockets are 3 inches long and 2 1/8 inches wide (or about 76.2mm long and 54mm wide).

I don't know how big your new neck is, or if your Stagg neck pocket is the same side. But that those measurements are just for reference.

Stagg tend to stick to the asian strat knock off specs pretty damn well, you shouldn't have too many problems with it. though it seems strange to buy a new neck for a cheap guitar ...? but if you believe it's worth it then go for it!

Who cares if its a cheap guitar. Staggs are one of the nicest brands of replica guitars. Not plywood, i belive.

Congrats, I hate you!

Anyway, with your new neck, when it comes just slam it in and start jamming, then adjust the action accordingly to how you like it, and if its too high, add a shimmy.
