    Default Tele Replacement Necks

    Looking for some input.
    I'm in the process of purchasing parts for a Tele Build
    Musikraft offers a great reverse headstock Tele Neck with evh mm profile, asymmetrical etc, but its inching toward $350-$400 as the purchase price

    Any other options that offer same quality at better value?
    I might just cave in on the Musikraft, but I'd like to hear from you folks too.

    Thanks in advance - Chris

    The best necks I've encountered in all that I've used (Warmoth, Musikraft, AllParts, Mighty Mite, "garage luthier" custom builds) is AllParts. Buy your neck and have a quality fret level/crowning done to it. They don't have all the custom options that you get with Warmoth and Musikraft, but I've found their quality to be incredibly consistent and they don't do nearly as much moving and twisting over time like other brands.

    5+ years ago, I would have recommended Mighty Mite, but their quality has really REALLY faded in recent years, and due to some business practices that I saw forced upon their largest dealer in the USA, I can no longer support them for that reason either.

    Thanks for the Allparts recommendation AT, I'm also looking for a good Tele neck, and if I don't end up getting a custom one, it sounds like Allparts is the way to go these days. That's one of the few neck suppliers that I HAVENT tried yet.

    Just go to Fender's website and buy a Genuine Fender Tele neck. The have the Mexican made Fender necks for $199, or the USA made ones for about $500, if you really want a USA
