I would agree with wes. Maple tends to amber as it ages. I have an old piece my uncle gave me that looks about the same color as that neck on the surface but if I sand it, it's light under that layer. You may have just sanded through it. Even so, I wouldn't mess with it. There's more of a chance of screwing up trying to get the color to match perfectly.

I doubt the guitar is finished in nitro, but if it is you could always put some nitro lacquer in a glass jar and set the jar outside for a few weeks/months. The sunlight will age the lacquer to a nice vintage amber. This is a trick I learned from Frank FordFRETS.com. Frank is maybe the best/most respected repair guy on the West coast. I witnessed him reset and refret a 70's Martin 12 string in just over 2 hours while he gave a lecture at The Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery. I think nitro is the only finish that would age like this though.
