What wood do they use for epiphone les pauls?
I heard that pre-2006 or something like that, they used a mahogany/alder mix but now they use pure mahogany
Is that right?
What is the wood quality of epi lp's?

be careful....some Epiphones...lower end ones say they are made of Mahogany but its really a Mahogany plywood...

500 plus and the Elitist series are possibly the closest to Gibson.
However the Epiphone Les Paul Standard for about 450 is a decent but

Its Mahogany...dont worry about it dude...you would know if it was alder by weight and the warmth of the sound you get from the guitar

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.
