The Phoenix necks changed during production. Early ones would have the truss rod adjustment at the body, and the nut at the end of the fretboard like a gibby, then they would have the truss rod cover at the headstock, but still the big brass nut, finally they would have a thin graphite nut in a slot like a Fender.

I would discourage mixing bodies/necks from different era's for mounting and intonation problems. I have also heard the pocket dimensions changed, so the fit could be sloppy or too tight to mount necks from different periods. If you can find a neck with the same features that yours has, you should be able to swap and play. Best of luck, and welcome.
