S470 build underway- need information

Hi- I just got hold of a '03 s470 body. I own a lot of guitars and I have an RG770 from the 90's that I have done some pickup swaps to. I just can't get used to the bright sounding basswood bodies, so when I had a chance at this mahogany body I bought it.
So, I need to find a ZR bridge for it- its got 3 1/16" spacing and this rules out a lot of other bridge options. I'm not going to reset the posts and do a lot of work like that, just want to plug and play. Any sources for a ZR bridge aside from Ibanez themselves?
Also, I need to know what my neck options are. Its an AANJ style but what necks (from what other Ibanez models) will fit the neck pocket? I think this came with a 22 fret neck but can I also use a 24 fret?
I appreciate any and all help or pointers. Thanks!

You can get ZR's from rich at ibanez rules or ebay.

You can install any fret amount as long as it fits and is the same scale length as the original.

You won't be able to use a 24 fret neck unless the new S series 24 fret necks have overhangs for the last two frets. I dont believe they do. Did the 03s come with ZRs? Man they've been out a while now.
