the second one. it has an all mahogany body. i would also suggest you look into the epi les paul plain top. the black beauty and the standard have mahagony/adler mixes

the neck is different on the standard to the black beauty, its thinner and i think easier to play, although i have the beauty and i love it

Beating the elderly is a big favourite of mine. Also, pushing kids over and kicking pregnant women in the womb is fun.



Right now we're called 'Various Artists' just to fuck over people with iPods

None of the above. They're all the mahogany/alder bodies. Basically the same guitar with different cosmetics.

Go for a Les Paul Standard Plain Top. It's got an all mahogany body with a real maple top. Not just a veneer. It's also cheaper than all three of those. Use the money you save to put some nice pickups in it and you've got yourself an amazing guitar.

I thought the Epi Custom had all mahogany body but an alder top instead of maple vs. the mahogany/alder body with maple cap on the std? I like the Custom of those 3.

Look on the official Epiphone website. It says mahogany/alder for the body with a mahogany/alder top.
