Anyone makes a 7 string with these specs?

RG shaped
Mahogany (optional : thin) body w/binding
24 frets
Oil finish
HH configuration
Fixed bridge
Preferably MIJ or custom made

I can only think of a Blackmachine B7 but all the hassle of getting one is..

Anything close to a Blackmachine that's easier to get?

EDIT : A 6 string is okay too I guess

I think that KxK makes something like that, but I'm not 100% sure.

I don't think I can afford anything now at the moment, but I was wondering if I can get a price quote on that kind of guitar, including shipping to Japan *laughs*

Caparison makes the best natural oiled mahogany bodied guitars IMO. They just don't come with body binding. They are great guitars. I'm sure you've heard of em.

I've seen some in stores! Maybe I'll check them out. 7 string Caparisons are hard to find, even in Japan!

I'd say, strip a K7 of its paint. Block trem, rub in oil, presto.
Another option, sadly not MIJ, but that only makes it less of a waste to strip:
RGA= mahog, HH (loZ), Gibraltar.

I'll vouch for Jaden's guitars, they seem to tick all the boxes that you mention, in particular the body thickness. Jaden's guitars are a bit slimmer than most out there and that cuts down the weight and pulls the guitar in tighter to your body whilst playing.

The closest you'll get is the Apex 2, but that's made in Indonesia and doesn't look the way you want it to.
