    Fender's website refers to an asymetric neck contour for the RBV. Mine has a flattened oval shape. Has the neck shape changed recently?

    Mine has the neck like yours and is a 98 RB5.

    I wouldn't place too much weight on the Fender website's description of the RB5. It still describes the mini-toggle switches as:

    Mini-Toggle Switch 1:
    Position 1. Front Coil of Neck Pickup
    Position 2. Both Coils of Neck Pickup
    Position 3. Rear Coil of Neck Pickup

    ...and pulling up the tone control is described as a "mid-contour" or something like that.

    Both of these descriptions are wrong.
