    • 22 Frets


      Both the stratocaster and telecaster carbon fiber neck will feature 22 frets. As far as fit is concerned, the important measurement to preserve is the 25.5" scale length. If your wooden neck has 21 frets, you'll get an extra fret with the upgrade.

    • 9.5" or 12" Radius


      We're preserving the comfortable and familiar 9.5” radius. We are also giving customers the option for a 12" radius, if that's their preference.

    • Modern C Shape


      Preserving the most common stratocaster and telecaster neck shape, the “Modern C”-shaped neck profile is comfortable for almost any playing style.

    • Angled Headstock


      Ergonomic and sleek. We designed our headstock for the carbon fiber neck upgrade with hundreds of customers' input. Pulling from tradition and inspired by innovation, we’re extremely excited for you to see this carbon fiber beauty in person.

    Will it fit my current guitar?

    This neck is designed to fit most Fender Guitar bodies, this includes Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazzmaster, Mustang, and most Squire 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.  

    If the new upgraded carbon fiber neck does not fit with your guitar because of an unforeseen irregularity, you’ll be able to return it for a full refund assuming it’s not damaged in any way.

    Installation

    At Home - The installation process consists of several simple steps which will be provided upon receipt of your carbon fiber neck. First you take off your wooden neck by loosening the strings and then unscrewing the bolts. Then you’ll place the upgraded carbon fiber neck in the neck pocket to make sure that it fits. You’ll be provided with a drill bit that will have a locked depth so that you can create four holes in the carbon fiber neck to fit perfectly with your guitar. You’ll receive 4 screws to attach the carbon neck to your guitar body. 

    At KLOS Guitars with setup (Recommended) - You can choose the option to ship your guitar body to us and we’ll be able to install the neck for you. You won’t need to ship the neck.  We’ll do a full set up with new strings to make sure the playability, action, and set up of your instrument is perfect. Because each wooden body might be a little different it is recommended to choose this option. The $100 price includes a shipping label that we’ll email you to ship your guitar body from you (contiguous USA only) to KLOS Guitars.

    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.

    Carbon Fiber Pickguard

    Our pickguard upgrade will replace your current pickguard precisely, leaving you with a more innovative, reinforced, and durable guitar. Stratocaster models will feature a stratocaster pickguard, while telecaster models will feature a telecaster pickguard. The pickguards will have Fender shapes, with only the knob, pickup and switches will change. Exact specifications will be obtained once an order is placed.

    Neck Features

    TUSQ Nut

    TUSQ delivers a rich tone: crystal clear and a bell-like high end with big open lows, coupled with a significant increase in harmonic content and harmonic sustain. More harmonics means more richness and character in your tone. The nut width will be the standard 1 11/16" (43mm).

    White Side Dots and Inlays

    Clearly visible notation with a stunning black and white contrast, these classically styled inlays will remind you of the past as you look toward the future.

    Stainless Steel Frets

    Comes with jumbo stainless steel frets that last just about forever. No more need for replacing frets or worrying that they will wear out. The necks will only ship with medium jumbo frets.

    KLŌS Guitars Tuners

    Designed by KLŌS Guitars, our tuners paired with the stability of the carbon fiber neck and composite fretboard will keep your instrument in-tune longer than any wooden instrument you've ever played.

    The neck ugrades will launch with chrome tuners. Black tuners will be arriving in the future. We'll send black tuners to customers upon request.

    Composite Fretboard

    A composite fretboard emulates ebony wood. Its density will provide more sustain and an improved tone.

    Comes in Lefty

    Lefty necks will be in the "Hendrix Style." Cosmetically, the side inlays and logo will be swapped to be in the correct orientation for a lefty neck.

    Truss Rod

    Brilliantly designed, the truss rod is very easily accessible. The entire carbon neck was designed around the truss rod being embedded inside of it. Though the neck is very stiff because of its material, the truss rod is simply there to adjust the relief for any preferred setup. Once set, you can rest easy knowing it won’t move.
