I believe that the JS guitars have sqare heel neck joints not AANJ. If the neck you found is from a newer Prestige S540 it will probably have the new AANJ heel. I think an S540 neck from an old guitar would fit (1987-1991 era) but I heven't tried it so you must check it first. The main difference would be the neck profile (thiner on the S) and the angled headstock on the S versus the Strat style one on the JS.

I forgot to mention it's a square heal 540 neck.

You may have to plug and re-drill the screw holes in the neck
and sand the heel a bit thinner or widen the neck pocket on the
body a small bit, but apart from that, it should fit.

You will need a new nut, since the S neck is 1mm wider than the
JS neck. You'll also need new tuners, unless you want to mess
with the 540 headstock, since the way the tuners are mounted
on the JS100 is different to the way they're mounted on higher
end models (including the 540).

btw, unless I missed something, if it's a square heel neck it won't be a prestige.
