The new Les Paul SmartWood Studio is made from one of the world's most prized and rare tropical woods - Muiricatiera (Muir).

Les Paul SmartWood Studio

Available Colors: Muiricatiera (Muir)

The trees are harvested from managed, renewable forests certified by the Rainforest Alliance.

Modeled on the Les Paul Studio, the Les Paul SmartWood Sudio has all the essential features, playability, and sound of a carved-top Les Paul.

To complement this truly exotic wood, the carved top is left to its natural texture and color with a durable, UV-cured matte finish to bring out every nuance and detail.

The FSC Trademark identifies products which contain wood from well managed forests certified in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council. A portion of all sales will be donated to benefit the Rainforest Alliance.
