I was just wondering what people thought of their exotic wood smartwood series (not the buir) les pauls. I went around trying out alot of studios and then ran across a couple of smartwoods which imo blew the studios out of the water (that I had tried).

I ended up with a 99 Smartwood Les Paul with a Cancharana top, and have loved it ever since.

I noticed there is hardly any information on these guitars on the internet, every forum I go to has maybe 1 post or thread with not a ton of information or input.

Just wondering how you guys felt about them.

I know that the cancharana model isn't made anymore, unless I am mistaken. The Mahogany that the guitars are made of are also from farmed trees.

Here are some shoddy pictures of it

When compared to the studios it felt alot more solid, although I personaly do like the studios, this felt alot better and the carve looked better for some reason.

The local shop has it a while (they were selling more Epi's and I guess the kids wanted a guitar with a finish) and it dropped from 999 to 850 when I went to go see it and picked it up the next day.

I've seen 1 or 2 on Ebay going for around 1k or above.

I love it, all the LP tone and a aweomse tonewood top instead of the expensive finish/binding. The Smartwoods also have dot pearloid inlays instead, which I like a little more anyways.
