Are all Front-Routed Universes the same?

I need a new pickguard for my 97UV, the black with silver dots version. It's front-routed. Can I use any pickguard from any front-routed UV for a replacement or do I need to watch for anything?

I think there is a bit different screw placement depending on year of production. Usually suppliers will ask you for that number.

Hmmmm... anyone know if the 97UV has the same screw placements as a UV777BK so I can order a new one from a dealer? (I don't think Rich had any listed as being in stock.)

I have the 97 Silver Dot UV, which should have been the black (I think) but I bought it used with a mirror guard.

Is it the same screw spacing as the newest version of the UV (The only one available since, what, 1998?)

The bummer is that I'm not sure if I even want a mirror PG, but the one that's one there now is really bad.
