  • Can we mix the parts of different Fender® guitar models? The characteristics of the parts vary on the different brands of Fender and the different models. We do not recommend trying the experiment unless you have checked beforehand that they are correctly adjusted and compatible. A neck a stratocaster can fit on almost any stratocaster body but not all stratocaster necks can fit Telecaster or JazzMaster bodies. You can consult the technical data sheets on the website www.fender.com or consult our knowledge base in violin making to understand and discover how to choose a body or a neck replacement for Fender electric guitar and bass.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions about Fender guitar parts

  • Can I put a neck from a Telecaster to a Stratocaster body and vice versa? This may be possible but we do not recommend it unless you have checked the dimensions and dimensions perfectly. The locations of the screws and the dimensions often differ from one model to another. Not all Fender parts are calibrated and adjusted to combine and are not necessarily compatible from one year to the next. So be careful : make your choice after inquiring about the precise dimensions of the parts to be assembled. Read our article on "How to choose a neck Fender®?", it is very important to know how to distinguish Fender necks according to the categories, level of range and series manufactured according to the years. This advice is valid for pickguards : a pickguard of Stratocaster type Reissue 57 does not correspond to that of a standard Amercian Stratocaster of the 60's or the year 2010, a switch knob for Telecaster 52 will not mount on a switch of Telecaster 1972.
  • Can all Fender necks be mounted on all Fender bodies as long as they are of the same type and category (Example: a neck Telecaster on any Telecaster body)? These questions are specific to violin making. We cannot certify this, ask our support instead or consult the detailed product sheet. This is partly true, but the variety of models available on the market makes incompatibility possible. In general a neck type vintage year seventy with 3 points of screwing will be able to fit on any body of the same generation with 3 points of screwing but you must control according to the type of neck : width at the fixing heel and width/height of the screwing pocket cut into the body. Many guitarists mix and match the different models, but this may require additional modification of the original configuration of the parts. We encourage you to exercise caution and to inform yourself well for your Custom guitar project. that said, all original or reissue 50's to 70's body models have a screw pocket on the neck standard dimensions, standard width, which means that all Stratocaster handles can be mounted on it. Do not hesitate to ask for advice at the time of your purchase. Most of the time it is safer to match the parts of the models according to their origin, cad of the country of manufacture: American parts with American parts for example, Mexican / Mexican, japanese / Japanese, etc. However, this does not guarantee that there will be no problem of coupling parts for different models manufactured in the same country.
    Before trying, we strongly advise you to consult the manufacturer's website or a luthier used to assembling different Fender® models or to consult any technical documentation to confirm the compatibility of the chosen parts. This question arises less for electronic parts and fittings, although it is still necessary to check before choosing this type of parts.
  • What are the different sleeve shapes and profiles? Unless otherwise specified, most Fender guitar and bass necks have a "C"-shaped profile. Several thicknesses and widths exist. Thick profiles in the form of a "U" or a wide "V" (V boat) exist on the type models vintage 40s / 50s /60s. The profiles from the 60's onwards are mostly thin, symmetrical or asymmetrical "C" profiles.
  • What are the specifications of the products sold on the site? Fender guitars have been around since 1948 and dominate the global electric guitar market. In fact, Fender® parts have become standards, their format, their dimensions placed at the rank of international standard.All models have evolved over time with minor improvements both in terms of violin making and electronics. The official Fender® website offers detailed specification sheets for all their models. The site also offers other useful links that can serve your custom guitar project.
  • In which woods are the violin parts made (neck, body)? Most of the time the pieces are made of Ash, Alder for the bodies and maple for the neck. The added keys of the necks are sometimes made of rosewood, ebony and maple as well, consult our specific help about Fender® necks. Some low-end bodies are made of linden or pine. Exotic wood parts are rarer coming from Fender factories, they more often come from independent "custom-shops" manufacturing Fender licensed parts such as Warmoth for example. The pieces of violin making in walnut, flamed maple or "birdeyes" maple in cocobolo and zebrano are very rare.
  • Do the bodies have a nitro-cellulose (nitro-synthetic) varnish finish? If the body has a nitrocellulose finish, this will be indicated in the description of the ad. This type of varnish was widely used until the early 70's. The models "vintage" are often varnished with nitrocellulose. Since the 80's Fender has most often used thicker and resistant top quality varnishes: polyurethane, polyester, Acrylic.
  • Do you have wiring diagrams for the pickups and potentiometers? Consult our knowledge base in violin making you may find a good tip. The official Fender website offers all the wiring diagrams on its website, you will also find detailed documentation in images on the website of Seymour Duncan.
  • Are the parts sold on the site new or used? This information can be found in every ad, most of our pieces come from destocking and second-hand. Second-hand, old and used parts are classified in a specific category of the website in the "second-hand" category.
  • Are the Flight Cases and cases suitable for all models of electric and acoustic guitars? No, even the Flight cases may have differences depending on the Fender® models and the years of manufacture. The type cases vintage Fender Tweed or tolex are usually compatible with Telecaster/Stratocaster but not compatible with an Ibanez or Yamaha bass or guitar. Unless otherwise indicated, we sell cases compatible with all Fender models, this information is specified in the ads.
