Question by : What is the mighty mite neck that is most similar to a les Paul neck, and what is the cost?
I’m planning on starting a super strat project with a les Paul-esque neck, and I know for sure I want a mighty mite neck, what would you recommend? Also, it has to be able to be bolted on and fit in a strat sized neck pocket. Please try to keep it under $ 200. Also, ebony fingerboard is preferred as well as mahogany neck wood, but not neccassary.

I presume you mean to use a neck with a Strat scale. To use one with a Les Paul scale will require moving the bridge on a Strat body. The profile you will need is the vintage rounded and probably a 9 1/2 radius fretboard. I do not think Mighty Mite makes any Strat necks in mahogany, but MM does have ebony fretboards available.
Unless you want to switch your neck wood to maple, I think you will have to go with a custom made neck from Warmoth. That will run you around $ 400 most likely by the time you get everything factored in.
