Body
Species
The body is crafted from a one-piece mahogany which is back-routed to accept a Floyd Rose® vibrato unit, and capped with a highly figured carved arched maple top, both premium kiln-dried tone woods. Body Species
Tonal Characteristics
The maple-mahogany wood combination, one of the most legendary pairs in the history of the solid and semi-solid electric guitar, yields a "best of both worlds" tonal splendor while also producing a classic look and a sturdy instrument. As such, the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess's body woods present a tonal marriage made in heaven, offering a combination of good clarity, definition and treble bite from the maple, and excellent depth and richness from the mahogany, with punchy mids and warm lows, all of which are elements that are found in the classic Les Paul Standard tone.  
Design
The Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess follows with the timeless lines of the original Les Paul Standard, with a gently arched carved top, rounded lower bout, and single cutaway, making it one of the most proven and tonally exalted electric guitar designs in history. Body Design
Available Finishes
Color
The Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess is finished in your choice of high-gloss Viceroy Brown or Royal Crimson. Royal Crimson Viceroy Brown
Process
The Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess is hand-finished in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer, in a process that closely replicates the finishing process applied to original Les Paul Standards of 1958-'60. Like the great Les Pauls made 50 years ago, this instrument is finished with minimum build-up, in an effort to produce a finish that breathes with the guitar and enhances natural resonance. The final result is hand-buffed to a high sheen.
