Help! Please Help! Stuck at building a custom guitar :(


I just finished designing my dream guitar, and I'm stuck before I made even one cut to the slab of mahogany that'll become its body.... I need to source a genuine JEM JV White neck with the 'tree of life' inlay, and apparently Ibanez is not going to just sell a neck to me, as they're afraid of forgery They would, if I had a damaged neck off a JEM to part exchange it. Is there any place in UK, or anywhere else, where I can simply buy a genuine Ibanez neck?
I will happily buy an undamaged second hand neck if anyone has one, even abroad.
Thanks for any help!

Here's what the guitar is going to look like (very approximately, it's just a photoshop job so I can give people a slight idea of what I'm going to do )

I'm going to fit it with the following hardware:
Bridge: Ibanez Edge Pro, gold
Machine heads: Grover Super Rotomatics, Gold.
Pickups: 2 Seymour-Duncan Super Distortion Humbuckers
Electronics: 2 volume and 2 tone controls, 2 coil tap switches, reverse phase switch, 3-way pickup switch, killswitch.
