Concrete Guitar ??

I've seen multiple videos of people building guitars out of various materials - concrete, colored pencils, etc. - and the final product sounds like you would expect a normal wood guitar to sound. The funny thing is that all the videos I have seen have been of Strats. So a Strat made out of concrete or colored pencils sounds like a Strat. Ok, I get it. But I haven't seen anyone try this with a Les Paul or any other Gibson model. I wonder if the results would be the same or if we would see that a concrete Les Paul does not sound like a mahogany/maple Les Paul.

Are there any videos out there of Gibson models made out of non-traditional materials that I have missed?
