Im looking to buy a guitar that is alder body, H/S pickups,maple neck and rosewood finger board.

But i cant seem to find any guitar with that kind of spec's, and i dont know how to build a custom guitar because of wiring.

The Ibanez RG565 might get you close to those specs. It has a basswood body and a maple fretboard though. I'm sure you could trade it for a 570 neck!

Buy a Strat to your timber specs. The get a tech to install a H-S pickguard with the pickups of your choice.

There are wiring diagrams all over the Internet, as well as tutorials--tons of videos. You've got to start sometime. Back in 1984 when I started wiring, we had no Internet. These days, there's a tutorial for everything from guitar wiring, milking cows, to replacing the Flux Capacitor in your DeLorean. Dude, go buy a soldering iron, some solder, and get to work. Once you get your first wiring job done, you'll have confidence enough to go rewire anything.
Here are a few links to get you started:

Fender super strat h/s/s comes with alder or swampash body (both are similar really, in weight and sound) and I swear I've seen one wih 24 frets.

Ryc--you know exactly what I mean! If we needed info on DIY guitar wiring, we had to run down to the library and "hope" they had something on it. Heaven forbid we took it into a guitar shop and asked for free info. I'm 42, BTW.
