Standard Duo sonic, mustang, musicmaster, bronco, and Jaguar necks all have the same size heel and are interchangeable. Vintage duo sonic, mustang and musicmaster necks were available in 22.5" conversion sizes depending on the year. They still fit the same body (including Jaguars) but have one less fret and are 1.5" shorter.

The only duosonic I can't vouch for is that 90's reissue. I remember that it was the shorter scale but I kind of remember it being different from the vintage/standard paradigm.

The heels sizes are different between vintage US made guitars and modern far eastern ones, but if you are swapping between Chinese bodies and necks for example you will be fine. Mixing vintage bodies and modern necks - you might be ok, but not definitely.
