NATO "Mahogany"

OK, guys... and gals...

I'm going to buy a Les Paul COPY. My thinking is towards something cheaper (since it is a copy) rather than something more expensive since it is a copy. It gives me more cash to spend on upgrades.

Has anyone played a NATO bodied solid-body guitar? It is supposedly the poor-man's mahogany.

How does it sound, compared to Mahogany?

Re: NATO "Mahogany"

I've never knowingly played 'Nato'- is it the wood used on epiphone les pauls, or even cheaper copies?
If you are going to go cheap and upgrade, then the only thing you can't replace is the wood, so I would try and go for mahogany if you can.

Yeah I agree with Globbits,,, BcRich does the same thing, when they aren't using Agathis.

Cheaper than Epiphone. This is for a Richwood vs Vintage (brand) comparison.
