I wonder if these Reissues more true to the originals with a Brazilian Rosewood board also have the right Honduran Mahogany or do the have the same Mahogany as the other Reissues? Just curious since are a lot more expensive.
I know it’s not cheap. But if it’sthe same Mahogany it’s still not spot on like a 50’s LP even if it’s closer. Not that i think it matters that much tonewise. When did they stop using Honduran Mahogany?
Indian Rosewood is an entirely different species as compared to Brazilian Rosewood. The Fijian Mahogany used in Historic Les Pauls is the exact same species grown in a slightly different climate. I say "slightly" because the Honduran Mahogany was harvested out of various climates; forest, rainforest, plains, etc. The Fijian is grown in more rainforest like climate but so was much of the original Honduran Mahogany. The woods are essentially identical on a BRW Les Paul Historic now.
