Looking for a replacement strat neck with a finished black headstock. Apparently they're harder to find than they seem. Any ideas?

My idea would just be to get a normal Strat neck, (ie. maple headstock), and just paint it black, put a logo on it, (if it's a Fender or Jackson, or if you want it to say Ibanez for some sick reason, just buy a logo, and lacquer over it), and bam, good as new.

Mind letting us in on your project?

THis is the project. Stew mac body with my original MIM neck. Got the loaded Lace pickguard at about the same time as the body. Immediately after this photo was taken though I replaced those hideous cream knobs with black ones.

Anyways, I was hoping not to have to do a custom from Warmoth because the base price for a custom is like $360 or something like that. I guess I'll just have to consider getting a regular rosewood fingerboard neck from Warmoth and finish the headstock black.

Edit: Would a Jazzmaster neck fit on my S-style body? I was thinking something like this might look kinda cool
