Do Suhr and Tom Anderson have patents on this wood combo? It seems like all the high-end stuff are either all American basswood or mahogany/maple. I've perused both the American and Japanese website and found no example of this combination (no, the Premiums do not count; those are just veneer)...

I'm referring to the "golden age" models build in the late 80's and early 90's. Was the flamed maple just a veneer or was it a sold (albeit thin) top? Is it enough to make an audible difference over an all mahogany S/Saber?
FS: Trans Blue RG770FM. This isn't the Sharktooth model with the IBZ USA F series pickups from the early nineties, this is the offset dot Japan-only model with the Ibanez QM series pickups. Trans blue top, trans blue headstock face, cosmo white hardware. AANJ. This thing is utterly...
Hey guys. This is my first post on Jemsite, so don't too harsh all right? Thanks.
So anyway, I've been thinking of getting a new guitar this coming spring when I visit the US. I went from an Ibanez ICT700 to a Schecter C-1 Classic to an Epiphone Les Paul/SG GX, which are all roughly $800.
