Indonesian necks question

Are Indonesian necks as good as Japanese and do they have the same dimensions? Im thinking of building a hardtail 540p2 and cant find a Japanese neck and Perle isnt taking orders?

Sorry if posted in the wrong spot

The 540P is a cutaway block heel, any Indo neck will be AANJ and will not fit, the neck pocket could probably be widened to suit and the neck reprofiled and the holes plugged but it's not a trivial job.

Perle makes the 540p2 body with an aanj heel, my bad for not specifying

In that case you can measure the pocket width and easily get a neck to suit off a complete secondhand guitar, you can buy a good quality Japanese Ibby hardtail in a very unfashionable shape and use the parts from it.
