Lightbulb Anyone Ever Seen Something Like This?

My BFP I just got came with an old JEM case.
When I opened it, the pick lining is now light brown???
Even inside the storage area??
How can this fade even when the case is shut?
One other thing that may help-
I put it next to my other JEM and UV1000 Cases, it is taller than the JEM cases, I think it is an UV1000 Case.
Did they come in this brown color for any reason?

Re: Anyone Ever Seen Something Like This?

Looks like one of the first year model cases to me... they weren't BRIGHT pink like the next ones (before they switched to the maroon velvet-y interior. It's not a brown but a really light, sort of faded, pink. I've got one that looks almost as dark as yours and it hasn't changed color at all since I've had it.

Salmon, and yes they came like that originally so it was never pink.

I love that the color rubbed off into the case

I've seen at least 4 different shades of interior on the UV1000C case, and that is a very rare salmon lined case. My 77PMC came with one too....I was as confused as you when i first opened it! (nice gtr btw)

I got a case with the same lining. The only thing strange about it is the decoloration in the areas touched by the guitar finish. Could be the fur is in a different direction and the light is playing tricks, but if it really is a different color... Well, beats me.

It looks like it is matted down in some place producing a color change effect.
Even where the knobs touch the top of the case.
