Because... I had one with a mid brown board inside, kinda restrained on the hammerite finish, and sounded amazing. It got fried in a storm strike... So...... just got a replacement. Sounds naff. Doesnt get nice and bright when rolling off the volume, sounds more farty and biased than the other too. THIS one looks different, has a more in your face hammerite job, thinner writing and a dark brown board inside. The wiring inside is not as tidy either. So, did they 'revamp' it? or have i just got a dog in place of my fuzz royalty??
