If I made a guitar with these specs what would it sound like?

Les Paul body Shape
Body - Mahogany
Top- Koa (Bookmatched)
Ebony fretboard with a mahogany neck
A PAF neck pickup and a custom hot output zebra'ed pickup I would make myself.

Thanks!

Like a Les Paul.

Assuming the construction of the instrument is sound and the hardware is good, it should sound pretty damned fine. The Mahogany body/neck and the Koa should produce a good, warm tone; rather like a Les Paul if the dimensions are similar. The ebony fretboard should brighten things up just a bit. And if you get a good piece of Koa for the top, it should look very good, too.

Wait, will it have a set or bolt on neck? That will change quite a bit of the tone/sustain.

Unknowable.

No one knows what that pickup sounds like.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

all u did was take a les paul custom and put a koa top instead of maple. the top adding the slightest variable to the sound being that the majority of the wood is the rest of the mahogany body

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

An LP custom. Be different and use something cool like a bloodwood or paduak neck.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

As long as its a well made neck pocket the sustain would not be the slightest bit different. The tone would probably just have more attack to it though.

I guarantee there is not a single person in this forum that can consistently tell the difference between a set and bolt-on neck in a blind fold test.
