Delivers excellent stability, swell, and sustain.
The Moses Graphite MTGF Graphite Telecaster Neck has an integrated graphite fingerboard, and a black, wear-resistant, non-sticky graphite finish. All Moses neck models feature 'fine tune' truss rod systems. Moses necks deliver excellent swell and sustain, a strong fundamental, and increased, even harmonics.
Graphite necks feel smooth to your fingers and don't get sticky. They absorb less vibrations than wood necks and allow you to select which frequencies you want to use and shape to find your sound. Tired of readjusting your instrument's neck? The stiffness of the graphite neck also results in amazing sustain and stability.
Moses Graphite necks are suitable for use on Fender, Music Man, G&L, Warmoth and many other manufactured 4-string basses, and 6-string guitars. These necks can also be used on custom instruments.
All necks are sold with single-rod 'fine tune' truss rod systems and are supplied with unfitted, unslotted graphite nut blanks.
Necks are supplied with heels not drilled for mounting. All necks are sold with a 4-hole self-tapping brass threaded insert/stainless steel machine screw heel mount kit.

Comments about Moses Graphite MTGF Graphite Telecaster Neck:
Giving a lengthy review because most of the comments I see online are from end users and not someone setting up the neck for the first time. First, the pros: The neck is one of the stiffest necks I own. It will flex but it doesn't suffer from the usual bad intonation you get if you move around a lot while playing. I put it on the same walnut ASAT Tribute that MF used to sell. The neck is marked Lic by Fender on the heel so it was a little loose in the G&L pocket. I snugged it up against the low E side and shimmed the other side. The neck has an extended fretboard so I lined up the bottom of the 22nd fret where it would have been with the orig G&L neck. This left some room in the bottom of the pocket so it needs to be filled with a specially cut piece of wood. For a Fender Tele body there will be no gap and since the corners of the heel are rounded it looks like it will fit a Strat body unless you have a heavy radius in your heel pocket. A slight adjustment of the bridge saddles and the there were no intonation problems. The heel thickness was no problem on the ASAT and the strings line up perfect with the pickups. The headstock is the short and small Tele style and I like how it looks. I installed black locking Sperzel tuners and had to enlarge the holes a little but the original flat finish on the tuners matches the neck perfect and looks military sharp. The frets were all level and no buzzing and the fretboard radius is flat enough to use with a slide. The neck shape is as described and for ASAT users tired of the thin G&L necks this is a really nice alternative. 'MOSES" is engraved in the side of the heel and visible enough to remind users or second hand buyers that the neck isn't some knock-off.
Now for the not so perfect: The description says it includes an unfinished graphite nut but I did not receive one. I cut one from bone but had to sand out some irregularity in the route for the nut. The fret board edges are really sharp. I had to remove a lot of material to bevel them and recrown but the graphite smooths out nice with proper fine sanding. When drilling the graphite chips kind of easy. You will need a step drill or increase drill bit sizes in small increments when drilling the inserts Moses gives you for the heel. Regular screws seemed to hold just fine without inserts but I did eventually put in inserts. It was a pain. The supplied brass inserts all broke because the graphite is just too hard for the threads to dig in. I had to use such a large hole that the inserts all stripped out. I buried the inserts low and used JB weld on top to keep them in there and they seem to be holding. Maybe steel inserts would have been better but I didn't have any and they should have been supplied instead. A big negative is the truss rod adjustment is on the heel. It's an allen screw adjustment but needs to be at the headstock. To be fair the neck hasn't moved much through the seasons so it has been ok so far but I'm not looking forward to adjustments.
The neck requires a little more setup than a std wood neck so it's not a simple bolt on application but once installed the entire guitar feels really solid. It is neck heavy but with a swamp ash body will fall level but and not hang low. Besides the cool-to-the-touch feel of the graphite, if I was blind folded I would absolutely know I was holing a Moses neck because it feels so nice & smooth and you feel notes resonate through the neck similar to very dense woods. For the price the Moses neck is guaranteed tonal consistency if you don't mind the contemporary look. I wasn't sure if I was impressed at first but I do keep coming back to this ASAT as one of my absolute top favorites out of the 20+ guitars I own. With the right amp you will notice certain low notes that weren't as articulate as before. Really only deserves 2-3 stars for the difficult set up but once it's on the guitar it's a 5 star product. If Moses would move the truss adj to the headstock and bevel the fretboard I think they would have a killer product.
