Hey guys, so what is the difference between the wine red and vintage mahogany tops on the gibson les paul studio? does the vintage mahogany have no top??? i have seen pictures and it just seems like the wood is exposed

The VM has a......lower quality? Finish. It's not a gloss finish. I'm pretty sure they both have maple tops.

I'm not really sure... Best guess. Two of my friends have the two, and they not VM is prettier. But the VM looks kinda cool.

The wine red is more expensive but is really one of the best looking colors for a Les Paul, and VM is exposed and will scratch alot easier.

If you're talking about the Faded Studio, the Mahogany top gives it a different sound than the Wine Red Studio, which is a Maple top I believe.

Unless I completely misunderstood your question.

The VM is not glossy. I would say get the wine red. Thats what I have and its a beaut.
Sig What?

Ya go with the wine red, and what I meant by scratches easier when I was looking through LP's I noticed that all the fadeds had alot more scraches.
