I'm late to this discussion, but also had a 2006 330/6 in Blueburst that had a similar problem. When I bought it from a collector who purchased it new and never played it, it had the imprint of the case fuzzy lining on the guitar top, so instead of being glossy it was sort of a "fuzzy" matte finish... gave me the impression (pardon the pun) that perhaps something in the lining had some chlorine or something in it. Customer service suggested I try using a specific automotive polish (brand escapes me at the moment) to bring it back, but the imprint was too deep to make completely glossy. I ended up re-selling it back to the original owner and no longer have it (regretfully, I did love that guitar!), but the situation always puzzled me. A Midnight Blue 360/6 is now my main stage guitar... guess I should change my username one of these days!
