ok, so. i've always wanted a JS style guitar, but i don't want to buy the sig because i'd really rather it have my own flair to it
but i found a JS body on ebay for extremely cheap that i'm thinking about getting, repainting, and then finding a neck for.

PROBLEM: where could i get a neck? i called Warmoth today, and the guy said that Ibanez necks are very inconsistent, and that it'd be practically impossible to find one to fit. I also don't have the woodworking skills to fix it if it doesn't fit. would it be easy to learn something like that??

If im right then i think the earlier RG series and S series had square heels, like the JS series. Therefore the necks may work with the body better, You may want to try and find one of them (ebay). Any differences in width could probably be taken care of with some slight sanding i imagine.

Ibanez has an extensive parts catalogue... If you're sure the eBay body is genuine then maybe you can look up the parts number and order it via your local Ibanez retailer.

unfortunately, they wont give you necks lol which sucks. i think i'm probably going to just abandon this idea. it's potentially going to be a lot of money for something that wont be that good

I wouldn't give up, imagine that you some how run into Mr Satriani. The conversation could go like this

"YO joe! Never guess what, i bought a JS body off of ebay and put a ibanez neck to it and it's super cool"

Joe " Well, that's pretty darn awesome. Wanna be best buds?"

But if you give up it would go like this

"You Joe, i bought a JS body off of ebay but then i gave up...."

Joe "Well, that's pretty darn stupid. Maybe you should give up guitar in general"

..and you will be truly owned by Joe Satriani.

I agree with this. He might also be insulted that you gave up on trying to build his sig guitar and steal your hair.
