Fender stratocaster srv

 

They have some jumbo replacement necks that are sprayed with a yellow tint to give them a vintage look. It has a slab rosewood fingerboard and the model number coincidentally is SRV Jumbo.

 

This is a licensed Fender replacement neck. It does not have a Fender logo. There is no nut so I’ll have to add that (a bone nut of course).

They did not pre drill the heel screw holes, but did predrill the headstock.

The jumbo frets are nicely dressed, however I don’t know for sure if these are the same size fretwire that SRV used. Overall a very nice neck for this project.
