Is this Rosewood or Baked Maple?

Here is my 2012 Les Paul Classic Plus. Similar to the one you linked except mine came with uncovered pickups.

Here are a couple of close ups of my fingerboard. My fingerboard was oiled about 9 months ago.

BTW - Yes I agree with everyone that this looks like Baked Maple.

I have a '12 Studio with a baked maple board. Looks like the OP's more or less. It's a great guitar, I don't understand what the fuss was over regarding the maple fretboards.

I'm no snob about it and would play baked maple just fine.

Only reason I asked is because what I would offer on such a guitar would change if it was baked maple. Not because of my biases, but because of the market's biases. If I'm buying a guitar on the internet, I have to make sure I'm getting it at the best possible price in case it doesn't fit me.

I have a Jr with Baked Maple and it looks very similar to the guitar you posted.

My vote is BM.

It was simply a new wood that Gibson had never used before, and it drove the cork sniffers into a frenzy of complete and utter hysteria. :run::hyper::run::hyper::run::hyper::run::hyper:
