Buying an Iceman body (please, help!)

Dear forum,

On my country's equivalent to Ebay, I found someone selling a replica Ibanez Iceman body. He says it's routed for an Ibanez Wizard I or II neck. Whilst I am comfortable with these necks, I have no idea where to find one, or a replacement that would fit.

Does anyone know where I could find this?
I'd love for the Iceman to be my first build (assemble, actually), but since I'm not a woodworker, I cannot make my own neck. Buying it is my resort. However, most necks offered online are tele and strat replacements, and those would not work, right?
(Forgive me stupid questions)

I live in Amstrdam, so any European websites would be preferred and wonderful!
Furthermore, any advise is much appreciated!

The link to the original seller of the body:

Why don't you just buy an Iceman?

I love the bodyshape, but I'm not a hardrock or metal guitarist.
I was planning on putting either lipstick or Rickenbacker replica's from GFS in it.
Assembling from scratch seemed easier and less expensive than buying one and replacing its electronics.

It probably wont end up cheaper, it will possibly even be more expensive if you decide to go high quality. It will however be more fun and it will give you a unique instrument which is always nice! It will probably look better in terms of your style if you design it also. Hunt around for a beat up Ibanez with a decent neck and salvage it?

how bout buying an ibanez fireman. It's pretty much similar like an iceman, with single coils. You just need to change the pickup to lipstick if you want
