For Sale: 59 Tele Neck (Vintage Modern)


Senior member
SOLD: 59 Vintage Modern Tele neck


59 roundback Neck profile
Vintage modern construction
1 5/8" nut width.
Birdseye maple
Rosewood board
10-16" compound radius
6100 SS frets
Tuner holes two step Schaller, also fits Hipshots.
Earvana Nut
22 frets 25.5" scale.

Headstock finish in nitro, neck shaft tru-oil and gunstock wax. Frets have been leveled and dressed by myself. Fretboard edge also rolled by myself.

This is the neck I used in the natural ash tele
I am selling as it is not getting the use I would like it to. For me I prefer a standard thin profile so I have decided to sell.

Price: £200 £150 (including postage if in the UK)

The neck is located in the UK so shipping costs need to be worked out to the buyers location and added to the sale price if you are outside the UK.

The neck has hardly been played, the finish has mellowed to a nice colour and with the fret work already done this represents an added value over the cost of the neck. This work would cost at least half the price I am asking for the neck.

In this next shot if you zoom in you can see the quality of the fretwork and rolled edges for maximum playing comfort.
