From the photos it appears that it may not have a maple cap? Just the mahogany (which is cool)and thus also looks a little thinner than other LPs. I couldn't find the "Tribute Plus" on the website to see how they described the body. [confused]

But nice looking guitar hope you enjoy it. And c'mon man get that thing plugged in and cranked up [drool]

It's got a carved flamed maple cap

the current pictures don't do it justice at all

The maple cap is clearly visible in the last photo marked "one piece body no seam"

I like how they stained the maple cap along the sides. It is nice that they didn't do what they did on the 2016 tributes and just paint them all the way on the sides.
