It's here, and we can't be more excited. Finally, the latest innovative approach to instrument manufacturing from KLŌS is available for pre-order.
Upgrade your Fender STRATOCASTER®, TELECASTER®, JAGUAR®, and JAZZMASTER® guitar(s) to have the unparalleled stability and playability of a carbon fiber neck.
Blend tradition with innovation
The KLŌS Neck Upgrade will fit most STRATOCASTERS® and TELECASTERS®, as well as several other Fender models.
Why Carbon Fiber?
- Carbon fiber has 60x the strength to weight ratio of steel. From the neck to the fretboard, this neck won’t wear down with time or get damaged from travel and abuse.
- Once the truss rod and action is set to where you want it, it’ll stay there. No more temperature and humidity fluctuations impacting your neck.
- With more stability in the neck, your guitar will stay in tune much longer. Spend more time playing and less time maintaining.
- Perfect play with a neck that doesn't bend or warp. Never have a dead note or weak fret with the strength of a carbon fiber neck.
Will it fit my current guitar?
This neck is designed to fit most Fender Guitar bodies, this includes Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazzmaster, and most Squier bodies. The scale length will be the same, 25.5”, and the carbon fiber heel will fit into your neck pocket as well as your original neck does. The heel on the neck will be slightly different for each model, but that will be cut accurately by us on our CNC. The rest of the neck is the same for all models.
Modular Neck Plate
Because there is slight variance in wooden instruments, the holes in the heel of the carbon fiber neck will not be pre-drilled. The neck heel will have a composite neck plate installed that will allow a drill bit and screws to easily sit securely once your neck is installed on your guitar body. This method will ensure each upgraded neck results in a complete guitar with perfect intonation and improved durability.
