Well, if it started out green, it seems unlikely to have turned bluer under the pickguard. Now I've looked at them, the shot with the pickups out shows a bluer colour in the cavity too. I suspect the early Pelham colour was quite unstable, so it's not just a shift caused by exposure to sunlight. But why is the neck binding green? That looks like overpainting to me.Yep, 21 more photos on the ad page.
There is one with pickguard removed. Barely bluer.
I actually know what "cork sniffing" refers to. To check for a corked wine, you rub the cork on your lips, which reveals if the cork is dried out and rough, hence corked or not. This, to the uninitiated, appears as though someone were "sniffing the cork."A cork smells always good.
But cork have a very crap taste.
Your culture about wine is near zero my friend like your culture about guitars ...
