Yes there is some colour/lighting variation but it does give you an idea of how much the colour has changed.

Your guitar has aged beautifully!

I think, in modern parlance, it's 'reliced' not faked.

These were a limited build.
I own the last one made.

I did not post pictures of the same guitar.
Same model .. yes.
Same guitar .. no.
The picture on the left is a 'stock' picture of a JDP II I took from the interweb.
Someone else's.
Not mine.

Mine is on the right.... picture taken after I treated the fingerboard and bridge with Music Nomad F-One Oil last week.



Big difference?
Whoops! You were clear, I'm just bad at reading, haha.

I'm also a big fan of the way natural lighter tops darken over time. Yours has aged very nicely!

It has always been a great sounding guitar.
The Diane Ponzio 1 was a nicer looking guitar but this 2nd series had more focus on sound.

Interesting specs include;
-A 14-fret jumbo with a slot-head.(Waverly tuners)
-Italian Alpine Spruce/Mahogany
-Large sound-hole
-Scalloped, forward shifted bracing

It sounds good with virtually any strings but Monel 12's are my favorites.
