        the difference is the mahogany ones are slightly darker in tone.
        I use to believe this, I no longer do. Its a oversimplification

                      A Les with a maple board is cool and I'd love one. But, it's not a Les Paul in the classic sense. Neither is a chambered one, nor a Supreme. They may be excellent guitars, but, to me, they're not Les Paul's, at least in the classic sense. They're something else again. Not bad - different.

                        I can hear it now that I have the same pup in one that has a maple neck and one with a mahogany neck.

                        Its quite noticable with the guitars I have - IMO and with the ones I have.

                              Did you shave the volute?


                              Nah, he leaves it as hairy as nature intended.

                              As for peeps 'hating' maple-necked Les Pauls ... how many folkses here have even seen one outside of pictures?

                              Pas moi.

                                I don't recall any hate specifically directed to maple necked LP's, though I guess there is some sceptisim in some circles for anything that deviates from 59 specs
