Juno 106 owners will know this for sure. On most of those panels the originally bright blue buttons have turned into a sickly green.

It's very unfortunate. I lent some of my gear to a friend for use/storage in his studio while I was without a space for a while. His studio was a loft space with one big 20' long glass wall, and the Prophet was the one piece that wasn't obscured by his other equipment. By the time I realized what was happening it was too late.

Luckily this is the only piece I own that has done this. Even my Juno-106 has its colors intact.
