Anybody know any custom guitar builders who will clone an S body?

I wanted to use one of the new S5470's, but the sustain thing killed it for me...

So, at this point I'm trying to figure out my guitar situation and I'm thinking about just getting an RG1570, or something similar, and having someone build me an S body for it (to get my own 24 fret S)... I like the body size/shape/style of the S guitars, and I like the sound of mahogany better than basswood, so that's why I want to do this.

Or maybe if I got an RG3120 I could have someone shave the body down and make it like an S? (since the 3120 already has a mahogany body).

Right now it's down to something like this or just getting an older 22 fret S, but I'd prefer 24 frets..... not too concerned with which trem I end up using.... just want an HSH mahogany S body that will fit a 24 fret ibanez neck...
