Just out of interest, recent (well, mine is 2008 but as per the pics on the Fender website) USA standard Stratocasters have 22 frets (fingerboard overhangs the end of the neck).


My MIM Strats have 21 frets. My American deluxe ash Strat has 22 frets.

USA Standard Strats and Teles have had 22 frets since about '87, Squier Standards also have 22. MIM Standards have 21 but many other models of MIM Strat and Tele have 22 frets.

I will count the frets. when i put the strat neck on the cyclone i got 25" as well.

I believe my neck is the cyclone neck, i am just trying to understand the cyclone. plus i am not a big fan of the neck. the sides are harsh, the fret ends have to be filed. and its wide...

so, the cyclone neck is only for the cyclone? its a special deal?



Yes, it should be a short scale neck. Look at my pics where the 21st fret marker "dot" is located on each guitar and notice the difference in measurements. The Cyclone measures ~17 & 3/8" and the Strat measures ~17 & 7/8". If the wood on your neck is too dry the wood will shrink and the fret ends can get stabby. Sometimes placing the neck in a humid environment for a short period of time can resolve this issue, other times they may require a lite filing. The strat in my pics came from the Las Vegas area and had stabby fret ends when I received it. I placed the guitar in my bathroom and steamed the room up and allowed it to live there for awhile. The wood re-hydrated and the fret ends became a non-issue. If you are in a dry area you might need to place a "damp it" in your guitar case to maintain proper humidity for the instrument.



cool, my cyclone has 22 and strat is 21. I compared where double dot is and they do not line up. weird.

i live in california. its from the bay area. i lightly rounded the fretboard edges and did a light fill on fret ends, it helped a lot.

Cool. Glad it turned out to be the correct neck.
