77FP 1990 v.s. 1999

1999 v.s. 1990 77FP ??

Seeking opinions and reasons, are early or late model FP's more desired?

Wrong, the difference in QC is vast. The best FP's I've seen were the 2000 run.

Do you feel QC was better in the late 90's & 2000's? I definitely see a difference in several so far, heavier body and neck on 99-up.

Fretboards appear darker, neck thinner and action faster on earlier models, also the tone characteristics a bit more mellow on the later models.
