    It's hard to tell because of the angle of the pics, but judging by the wood grain in some shots, it looks like very dark rosewood, maybe died rosewood? Ebony is pretty much jet black.

    I agree, it's tough to tell 100% but from the grain I'd say it's rosewood.

    Nope, it's rosewood. I've owned a half a dozen of those. Maybe more , they all had dark stained boards. The only MIJ LP I ever had with a real ebony board was an Orville by Gibson LP reissue, with the inked on serial number.

    Thanks guys...most likely rose. I have seen a couple (perhaps Orville, one was an MIJ Epi) with ebony. Maybe I'll try an Edwards, or bit the bullet and get a Gibby.
