Help: "worn off" flamed maple neck?

Help: "worn off" flamed maple neck?

I just noticed that the lower part of the neck is not as “flamed” as the rest of the neck. Unfortunately I don’t remember if the guitar looked like this since the beginning or if it’s wearing off from playing. :confused:

What do you think?
