AC/DC would not sound the same if Angus played a Les Paul. All mahogany guitars have a forward midrange tone that's distinctive. Years back, I made my own LP Standard replica for myself. And not long after that I buiilt another LP Standard type but took some very different choices with it. That one is ALL mahogany, neck, body, and top, with an ebony fingerboard. I built it as a birthday gift for my nephew who was turning 13 at the time, and it's a spectacular guitar. And even though it has the same pickup complement I put in my own guitar (Duncan 59 neck, JB bridge) it sounds COMPLETELY different.
