Well the "me super" looks like an upgrade of the same chasis of the "me" in electronics and buttons, so they would be compayible in my opinion, I would give it a try.

I just swapped the backs between an ME Super, a Super Program, and an ME. They all fit the same.

The only difference was the Super Program back has a thumbgrip on the back.

But if you wanted to keep the original back (maybe it's in better cosmetic condition than your donor), you can transplant a pressure plate into it with a little work.

Lift it up carefully and you'll see the spring plate that holds it onto the back. Lift it away from the back far enough, and it will unclip on the side nearest the hinge. Then it pivots off on the other side.

Reverse procedure to install it on the other back.

Thank you very much.

The texture of the leatherette on the Super Program is different than that of the ME and ME Super. The Super Program back will fit mechanically, but it will not visually match.
