Replacement neck??

Hi guys! I'm new to the forum and have a question; the neck on my RG (321MH, in case you need that info) is pretty messed up. Last year (when i got it), i had tuned it waaaaaay too tight, and didn't realize until like 6 months later. This has caused it to be seriously warped. Even after getting it adjusted, it's still curved noticeably, and i've got nasty buzzing throughout frets 1 - 12 on my low E string, and some on my low A. So, I was wondering if it would be possible to get a replacement neck for my RG, but i've got a few questions first;

1. Where would i get it?
2. How much would it cost?
3. Would it be possible for me to get a neck with a maple or ebony fretboard as opposed to rosewood?


Sorry if this is a bit "noob - like", but it's been bugging me beyond belief, as the buzzing is insanely audible.

Thanks in advance,
RG_FANMAN

Re: Replacement neck??

While you can technically get a new neck from Ibanez, you would be better off just buying a replacement guitar. Used 321s can be had for less than the cost of a replacement neck.

Re: Replacement neck??

yea, i was thinking about just getting a whole other guitar in general (place like 3 hours from me has Ibanez guitars in good shape for 100 - 200, so it wouldn't be that bad).
