The Blueish purple one has been waiting about 4 yrs for a maple neck and I finally ordered one.
Fender Vintera 50s RI Telecaster Tele NECK, 1950s Reissue Guitar Vintage Maple
It's actually my daughters but she plays Piano and Violin and not guitar so far so it's kind of like I'm just wearing it in for her so I want it to be top notch. I was about to get a Squier CV neck but I wasn't sure if the specs are the same and the original neck was an Affinity and I couldn't get the action high enough. I'm sure there are some that would fit but I just wanted to put a 7.5 vintage Tele neck on this thing for her to have someday when she decides to try guitar.

Awesome build Kenneth. That looks great. Did you have any issues with string height? I originally had an Affinity maple neck on mine but the heel was too thick/tall and I couldn't get the string height high enough to not have buzzing and fret out issues. I read some Squier necks are just too tall and the Nomoonlaser bodies are exact Fender spec. So I took from that I'd need a regular Fender spec or maybe a CV neck for it. That or luck of the draw IMO. 50/50 chance it would work on mine. Hope that makes since.

Please call me Ken - I didn't have any fitment issues - everything just came together - the best part of this guitar is the neck - spectacular grain ! thanks @surf green !

The neck that is on mine now will be going on a HH Tele my buddy has. So that will be a nice combo. I feel when it comes to a Telecaster it just seems Maple is the way to go unless it's an HH then Rosewood is all good.
