I found this on the GC used site and posted about it in the hot deals thread. 500 bucks for an American Fender. I was really hoping someone would snatch it up so I could avoid the temptation, but a few hours later I called the store and it was still there, so now it's mine. It's an '97. Came with an SKB soft shell case. Electronics aren't noisy at all, even with solo'd pickups. Some wear and tarnishing on the pickups and saddles. Cosmetic wear on the body. After taking the neck off (truss rod adjustment at the heel is just stupid....really really stupid), I got it set up the way I like. Sounds great. Questions: the nut fell out when I took the strings and neck off. Should I glue it in? Leave it alone? Replace it? It seems to work fine and there's no buzzing or anything. How are 97's regarded? Was it a good year? Twins!!
