I'm looking for other owners of '97 Flint Hill Specials to trade information with, as it seems that the 1997's are different from the following years. AFAIK, this was the only year that the hardware was nickel, instead of gold. Also, it seems that the truss rod cover is different.
Anyone out there have 97 - 02 through 97 - 05?
