Wenge will lighten a bit over time with UV exposure but not as much as Walnut from what I've seen. And I've never seen that happen on a guitar, only on stuff that gets left in direct sunlight for years.

Greg and Steve, I beg your pardon, that is not purple! That is the designer color "Evening Plum Sunset" and I picked it out special. Out of a free pile.

It does liven up the place.
