Hori SCV stick - LS-40-01 compatible?


After searching, I gather that not all Hori models are easily modded with all Seimitsu joysticks. I have my eye on an LS-40, but I have to wonder how much pain and/or extra Japanese shipping fees I’ll have to endure. ShinJN’s review on LevelUp seems to imply LS-40 with the RE backplate will work, but could anyone else chime in?


LS-40-01 with SS Mounting Plate.
If you want correct.
