Best JEM/RG replacement bodies?

Who makes the best JEM style aftermarket/replacement bodies? I see several options on eBay but I feel like it could be a crap shoot.

I've got a 1999 Wizard neck mated to a 2000 RG570 body. I was thinking about either swapping the neck over to a custom built JEM body or doing something else that's a little creative with the existing RG570 body. Can the existing body be modified to JEM specs?

Anything can be done, it simply comes down to money.
It will probably be easier to buy a ready finished Jem style body you can simply bolt everything onto, that way you'll keep the 570 body unblemished should you want to sell it separately.

That's definitely an option I'm considering.

I've heard good things about Perle too, and he has more available off the shelf (on eBay). I like Mai for custom bodies.
