I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I bought this new in November 2016, it has never gigged or seen any sunlight or florescent/UV lighting of any kind. I only use it in my home studio which is pretty dimly lit. The Northern Lights stain is one of my favorite stains and I was so excited to finally have a PS in that finish. Now I'm feeling pretty bummed. Here are some pics of it when i first got it and how bad it has faded in such a short amount of time.
