Allparts Select 

Allparts “Select” represents the very best Allparts has to offer in terms of quality, features, and exclusivity.  Produced in limited batches using only the finest materials, our Select series replacement necks offer compelling combinations of highly desirable specifications and high-end appointments.     

Model Overview 

Officially licensed by Fender® and made to exacting quality standards in Japan using AAA+ Roasted Flame Maple, this Select series “Vintage Spec” neck honors the golden age of electric guitar production.  Featuring a 7.25" fretboard radius, vintage narrow frets, and a soft V-shaped neck profile, this neck is perfect for fans of early production Stratocaster® models, or players who play with their thumb over the fretboard.  Finished with tinted nitro (over poly) to accentuate the visual qualities of the flamed maple, this neck offers a truly custom level of beauty, comfort, and stability.    

What’s AAA+? 

Every unit with this designation is at least AAA grade flame maple, with many units actually exceeding the standard.  We inspect each unit post-production to make certain the finished product is worthy of our AAA guarantee. 

Why Roasted? 

Roasting the wood blanks prior to production enhances stability by reducing the moisture content down to around 7%.  The result is a more-resonant neck that’s stronger and less susceptible to changing weather conditions.  Roasting (or cooking) flamed maple also enhances the visual depth of the flame, accentuating the uniqueness of each neck.
