So I've decided to try an build a les paul, and have ordered plans online. I've drawn up a list of the parts and such, but am stuck on deciding which wood to use. I'm following the design for a 1959 Les Paul Standard, and I've been recommended to use either Mahogany or Maple, but neither are readily available where I live... any alternatives?

HAHAHA, oh man... amazing.

Yeah order online.

Also, those recommendations of maple OR mahogany, are actually maple AND mahogany.

You have a mahogany body with a thin maple cap to be a true '59 Les Paul.

Stew mac sells mahogany blanks. Although any of the other woods stew mac sells will work as well. Although Mahogany is the wood which was used by Gibson and still is. Mahogany Body, Maple Top (Burst Versions used AA Maple tops) Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fretboard (some models were rosewood)
Stew mac also sells neck blanks.
Good Luck!

Even if you find a tree, you have to cut it down, size it, and dry it.

than you can cut it and dry it for years unless you have access to a kiln you have to find a way to get the wood
