because it's a good tonewood.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
I've never really noticed a wood that's 'been used more', but it all goes for tone and all that.

It's why you don't see many metal players using alder for their body wood; it would be too bright for them, and mahogany gives a nice, deep and warmer tone.

Great tonewood, darker sound than say Alder, and is quite heavy. If you have a bright amp the dark characteristics of Mahogany balance out the brightness of the amp and give a smoother tone.

Squint your eyes to see clearly. Blur reality to make it real.
