Custom necks for Ibanez?

Are there good sources for custom necks that would fit 22 or 24-fret S-series guitars? I'd be looking for something that's as good as the Japanese-made Prestige stuff.

Just curious if there's someone making custom stuff so I don't play the ebay waiting game trying to find what I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance!

I used Chris Woods, talk about waiting time. Took him a year to get it to me! I hear Nate Pearl is pretty good too. You can find Nate on Ebay. Good luck

Re: Custom necks for Ibanez?

Cool, thanks guys. I didn't know if Warmoth made flat radius necks like the Ibby stuff or did Ibby headstock shapes. I did see that one warmoth neck on ebay but it sounds like they did a lot of additional work to it. I'll look into it a bit further and try to track down Nate on ebay.

Re: Custom necks for Ibanez?

Might be difficult with them since they're in Australia and I'm in the U.S. Not sure if I want to deal with shipping and customs issues.

Shocked there isn't a greater source of necks here in the states.

eBay

160911730265

Very nice 22 fret S neck.

300804881872

Nice 22 fret with sharkfins if you prefer that.

Done.

I'd take one of those a million times over a custom neck.

Have one of those already but thanks for the lead :-) ...need something for an AANJ S-series and I'd like to do an ebony fret board on it.

I've bought a couple of things from Ernie @ ET. Outstanding quality. Shipping is not an issue - I think it was around $40-50 USD with insurance. It will be prob 2-3 months from time of order to receipt of your neck though. He isn't the fastest but quality workmanship takes time...

In that case, the person I'd order from is Ernie at ET. Hands down.
