Just played my 60s Tribute and my junior back to back unplugged. The junior really sounded so much better (clear and bright) then the Tribute. I figured it is the difference of the maple top. So, my question is, did Gibson build a carved top Les Paul that was solid Mahogany? I figure this is why I prefer slab guitars?

That's the one! There are sightings of it on other pages too.

Near the beginning he posted a studio pic of it because he hadn't got it yet.

Here it is

Week 33 - Les Paul Classic Antique - Mahogany Top

LPCMSVNH1_.jpg

The Les Paul Classic modernizes the legendary Gibson Les Paul, offering guitarists the combination of the slim-taper neck of a '60s Les Paul and the supercharged power of ceramic magnet humbuckers. Now with a gorgeous Antique Vintage Sunburst finish and a mahogany top, this guitar's got the beauty and the brawn to rock through 21st century.

Limited run of 400

My 07 Studio is all mahogany with BB Pros. Also came with swag. I haven't mastered that yet.

Mine is a 2015 Traditional and it's also a LTD, hard to find at the moment. Also the wide neck it's not for everyone, but I do like it a lot. You would expect it very dark sounding because of no maple cap, but it's the brighter Gibson LP I do have, probably also thanks to the 59 reissue pups mounted stock on this model.

There is also a Standard 2016, same as mine, mahogany top glued on a 2 pieces mahogany body.

I found this while looking for different examples for my Oddfellow Appreciation thread a while back!

Hasn't been topped yet!

Here's another. Its from CFM Trade magazine page... Means nothing to me.

Site was factorydefect.net again, maybe somebody here has heard of it.
