Mostly custom one offs. I know there's a few for RGs, but never seen the S series.

Any suggestions?

PS, its a 22 fret neck

Aren't the RG/S necks the same, or at least interchangeable? Both have AANJs. ET guitars makes nice stuff though...I'm sure they could do one...

I think the 24 fret S necks can be swapped with RG necks. But not the 22 fret S necks.

Mine is a 22 fretter.

I know ET makes cool stuff, but I'd rather keep this in the US

Talk to these guys, they can probably do something for you:

USA Custom Guitars - The finest custom replacement guitar parts available.

Highly recommended by my tech, and who I am going to go to for a Fender/Charvel build later.

That's good to know if I decide to pick up an OOTS body later on.

Correct. That's why I had Rob make a body for my S neck.
