Pickup color on Jem Fp

I'm going to buy a Jem Fp in the future. I have been looking at some pictures, and i noticed that some PUPS are pink. Others ar orange.
Can anyone tell me something abbout this.

The FPs come with pink pickups hen they're new, but over time, the shade fades and discolours to the orange you're talking about. It is usually more noticiable on the humbuckers than the single coil too!

I don't think those are orange replacements. Either way, jono already explained that the pink tends to fade into an orange color.

Re: Pickup color on Jem Fp

Not a replacement. Part of it is the colors are not correctly represented in that picture. Also, the later solid color knobs used on that guitar are very bubblegum pink and don't really match any pink pickups, new or old.
