Help me build a FrankenRG

Since I can't find the perfect RG, I'm thinking about collecting the parts to make a "FrankenRG"

Here's the must have:
hardtail bridge
built in Roland GK pickup (not piezo)
Super Wizard or similar neck (24 fret)

I've never been happy with some of the features of my Prestige 1520GK, namely the tremolo and the piezo pickup system, plus the pickups are lacking.

I have new Seymour Duncan pickups (Full Shred Trembucker, and Jazz for he neck), and a Roland GK3 Kit for the project.

I'm looking for help to source a hardtail RG body and neck that will play nice together.
