RG Angled neck heel question

Hello,
Do the old style RG bodies with the angled heel need a particular type of neckplate due to the screw holes going straight down 90 degrees and the plate being at an angle? Are the necklpate holes are countersunk deeper or angled to stop the screw heads protruding?
I was just looking at a 760 body I have here and it got me wondering.

So any fender style neckplate will do the job?

Doubtful, the dimentions to the bolt pattern may be different. you can find old ibby neck plates on E-bay all the time, and Rich Harris has a ton as well.
