I am choosing between a gibson les paul standard in ebony or in wine red but I really like the flamed ones so if I dont get one with great flames ill be dissapointed so im leaning for the ebony.I like the ebony one better but I read that they use cheaper woods on the ebony.Is that true?
if theres another thing wrong with the ebony ones tell me about it please.Thanks

Dont listen to whoever the hell told you that. the ebony is a great guitar with a sick look. Slash uses the ebony and i dont think hed use it if it were made from crappy wood.
I founf the thread.I found two theories.1 the wood is cheaper because you cant see through the finish. 2 the guitar is cheaper because they dont have to do the flame top just paint it.

You opinion is appreciated.
