    www.Warmoth.com can make you a neck to Wolfgang specs. I`m not sure if they can duplicate the headstock or not.

    You can buy Mean Street necks from axcessories.com. They have a Strat type neck but if I remember right they also sell separate necks from their Intruder model which is similar to a Wolfgang. I don't know if it'll be close enough to a Wolgang neck for you though. It's close but not the same, Peavey has a patent on the headstock so if someone sells a similar neck it's a total rip off.

    Warmoth won't sell the same headstock but I recently noticed they had a Custom Design option for headstocks. I'm just wondering if they'd accept to duplicate a Wolfgang headstock though.

    Note that Mean Street is changing server so you might have trouble accessing their site for the moment.

    If you're good with wood working tools, you could just get a Strat profile neck with 6-inline tuner holes from anyone (Stew-Mac, Mean Street Guitars, JEM Forum & Parts, etc). Dowel up the tuning peg holes for High E, B, and G ... and then cover with a veneer of something dark (mahog, ebony) maybe in two layers. Cut the shape of the Wolfgang head and drill out the High E,B, & G holes on the opposite side of the head. Then, using a belt sander or vert. mounted drum sander with maybe a 1.5 or 2 inch diameter drum, sand through the veneer to get that "scoop" from the Wolfgang head for the look. Peavey showed how they do it on their tour of the Wolfgang factory.

    The trick is getting that neck profile. What I've done in the past is to sit with a new unfinished neck and various grades of sandpaper and just start sanding the back of the neck wearing it down to fit the shape of my hand. On a regular Strat profile neck, there's plenty of wood there to use heavy shaping type sandpaper to give it a nice profile. Then I'd just sand it with finer & finer grades of sandpaper until you're done. Tung Oil & Wax OR spray with finish when you're done (Tung Oil & wax are very nice on maple).

    Anyways - its an idea.
