Ibanez SV5470. Mahogany body. ash top vs maple top

Im looking at this model of ibanez... one comes with mahogany/maple top and the other one comes with mahogany/ash top.

so tell me what can be the differences in tone..

Specs:
rosewood fretboard
sd sh-5 custom bridge, sd sh-2 jazz neck.

Amp: Spider valve mkII

So, which one works better with the mahogany wood in tone...???

I know that maple top is very common, i think this is something new... but who knows... I need opinions. Im interested in this guitar.

I just ordered up an s5470fspb from Rich. Might take some time to get here. I let ya know, but all the reviews I have seen this axe has the goods.

Thanks man... I'll be waiting... also let me know how is the sustain and tone compared to an RG due to the thin body.....! It is the most important thing i want to know about this guitar.... including my original question of course... see ya...

I doubt it will make much difference in tone with an ash/maple top that thin.. chances are they're just using veneers with the S models

Sustain... from the looks of it, the way the note decays is different from an RG. The notes sustain normally with fuller volume and then the volume drops sharply.

i own the ash top version. after having Duncans in there, the SV5470 has great individual note definition in the neck humbucker. between the ash & the maple top version, the former (my guitar) manifests a quicker attack & is less boomy, unlike a typical mahogany bodied guitar.
