That might be a tough order. Most of the sabers I know have a trem of some sort. Although Ibanez now has the RG421.

Have you considered completely blocking the trem or using a Tremol-No?

I have the tremolo blocked now and it's OK, but the trem unit has all kinds of issues like stripped allen keys and the fine tuners aren't so hot (got it used), so I'd like to just find something with more wood in that area... I love the neck and the pickups are nice with my twin reverb, so I'd like to do a swap if I can find something

You might have to have a custom body in that case. Originally I was thinking one of the SC bodies, but it's a 25.1" scale, not 25.5". There's also the option of removing the trem on the body you got now, fill the route with wood blocks and install a hardtail bridge. And then refinish of course.
