Type of Mahogany used on MIJ Prestiges

Hey guys, just wondering if someone here or a dealer like Rich would be able to tell if the mahogany used in MIJ Prestiges like the RGT320 or the RGA321 is Honduran or African mahogany.

(I'm not being a wood snob or anything, just curious what exactly my RG is made of.)

Re: Type of Mahogany used on MIJ Prestiges

I would guess it's African mostly, some of the older models specified Honduras mahogany though. I have three mahogany bodied JC's and the mahogany used is very high quality, a little on the heavy side but nicely grained and resonant.
