    I had a faded Tortoise Shell Sig that turned exactly the same color. Welcome to the forum.

    The little that I know... PRS seemed to have some trouble with purple and raspberry. I had a very dark purple McTrem from '99. Yours look like some of the earlier ones that faded more quickly than other colors. At the '99 NAMM show the booth was all raspberry, and the guitars were numbered (20-something in all I think). I owned the raspberry '99 NAMM Santana for a while. What I remember reading at the time was they couldn't get the consistency on those colors that they wanted, so they were discontinued. But we see today they still experiment (new violet, etc.).

    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
