Epiphone G-400..."Industrial Mahogany"???
Hey everyone. I just bought a black Epiphone G-400 (aka SG) for $200 at guitar center; which I came to think was actually a really good deal, considering the guitar is in perfect condition besides a few tiny scratches here and there..
Anyways, I was curious if anyone could explain to me the wood of the guitar. It is called mahogany, but I was reading it actually isn't a real mahogany, but "industrial mahogany" or "Indonesian mahogany". So can someone explain to me what exactly that means, how the wood compares to real mahogany, and the tonal property's, pros/cons...?
