777 Jems with quartersawn necks/fretboards

Can anyone tell me when exactly 777s started getting quartersawn necks and fretboards? Bonus points if you can tell me what (if anything) prompted the switch!

Re: 777 Jems with quartersawn necks/fretboards

Necks moved to quartersawn around 91, dunno if that is exact enough for your needs.

As mentioned in that (ancient!) thread, if a pre-91 looks quartersawn, it probably is, but only by accident.

The reason for going quartersawn was stability against warpage during production, as well as during the lifetime of the guitar. With the introduction of multi-piece necks (around 98 ) quartersawn became less of an issue.

S!

I thank you for resurrecting my thread for an answer and linking to that other one. You have answered my question about the year, and I figured the move to quartersaw was probably done for stability and strength.
