Either they got a new photographer or the fingerboards are a much lighter wood than usual.

Still no 80's Riviera reissue [confused]

Well for one, Specs read: Pau Ferro fretboard with mother-of-pearl Trapezoid inlays.

while it still considered a rosewood, it's from a completely different geography from where most of the rosewood we're used to seeing is harvested.
(Pau Ferro is from South America). That could be why you are seeing a lighter coloration there as it's known to have varying qualities in regards to colors and hue.

I found this link if you're interested
