Who can make a good Ibanez RG7 neck?

Hey guys!
i'm needing a custom Ibanez-style RG7 neck for my custom RG7621 project. I want a maple neck with ebony board, white binding, and white corner dots... if possible, i'd like to spend less than $400 total.
so who can make a killer neck? i have heard good things about Chris Woods, ET Guitars, and Jaden Rose... most of those guys are outside of the U.S., though, and i would rather not pay the brutal shipping on top of everything else.
any advice is appreciated! thanks!

Try out Warmoth.

I don't know if they specifically build Ibanez Style necks for 7 string guitars, but you can check out, I guess.

Here you go:

I asked Warmouth about an Ibanez neck and the reply was that they don't do them. That was a couple of years ago though. I just saw Chris Woods has an Ibanez neck on Bay and in the auction says he will make a custom auction on request. Any opinions on Chris Woods necks here?

@moonlight
I didn't know actually that Warmoth doesn't build Ibanez necks, you may ask them again now. May be they would.

Anyway about Chris Wood, their necks are not bad. Actually my friend has faced some problems when he tried to fit the neck into the body and we needed to make some changes and some other work to make it fit into our custom body (even though it was a JEM replica). We found some other problems as well and we decided to go to a luthier to adjust what was completely spoiled. We actually got it finally working but after spending more money to get it working fine. In addition to that, they don't offer any kind of warranties. Well, IN MY OPINION, I don't recommend it. Could be only me tho. That was in 2008.

@HumanFuseBen
BTW, Chris Woods ships necks to USA for just $15 (Ground Shipping), If you are interested.
