ADVICE: WHAT NECK? RG 520qs BODY

So the body is going to get stripped and stained, blackburst, with dark red in the middle fading to black on the outside. I figure I'm going with the original Edge, or a lo pro version. But the neck, ahhh the neck. I want something SUPER cool, but the neck humbucker comes right up to the edge of the neck. What other necks can go with this guy besides the awesome playing boring to look at Super Wizard? I want sharktooth inlays, or a maple board, or both, original ibanez necks only. any suggestions?

Any 24 fret AANJ neck will fit. If you use a Korean neck, you might have to dowel the holes in the neck and re-drill to fit the Japanese body as it seems the Korean necks have the holes in a slightly different position. I have a maple neck but someone did a hack-job on the heel and I haven't had time to attempt a repair.

go to stewmac.com and buy a video on guitar finishing as the process is way too involved for this forum.
