I´ve read the mahogany in the Custom Shop Les Pauls is Fidjian. From where is the mahogany in the Gibson USA Standards and Traditionals?

The term Mahogany cover a lot of different species of wood.
The Fijian mahogany is the exact same species as the braziallian type. Some smart cookie in the 50's decided to set up plantations in Fiji. Maybe they knew that the braz stuff wouldn't last or would be banned?
The African stuff is a different species all together
