. they are kind of similar but not exact.
It all depends on the Fender Year being replicated ie 1954, 1958, 1960, 1962, 1964, 1966 or 1972.
Different years, different features, different specs. Different pickups and different neck shapes for different fingerboards.

IMO 1980 - 1982 was the most accurate Models - not nessesarily the best construction woods - but the details were exact Fender.

Thanks for the reply.

If I was to get a '79-'80 ST80R would the neck profile be similar to my maple neck ST80?

Just had another look at the neck and there is a 60 imprinted into the last fret, quite faint but its definitely there

Just need to open it up now and hopefully all will be well.

thanks for your help!

Hi Mojo,

The short answer is no. Rosewood necks have a different shape to maple necks - regardless of the model.
The vast majority of rosewood necks are a '64 type C width rounded neck, although in 83/84 some ST-80R did have a slight 'V' to them.
The only other exception was the ST-70R which had a 'U' neck, B width slab fingerboard.(1960-62)

I'm in the market for a "V" Springy, so I guess that rules out RW boards.
Thanks Peter, good to know.

Only just noticed this thread.
I own a 1980 springy with a v neck rosewood board.
Bought it new in 1980, pick of the litter out of six we got in the shop where I worked at the time. All six were white nitro finish, vee neck rosewood board springys. ST80s. ?80 inc HSC at the time!
So don`t give up on a vee neck rosewood springy from the early days just yet.

Rosewood v's are out there...here is a 1980 BL-R that has the same v profile as a earlier 79 with a maple neck.
