2017 Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro with rosewood fingerboard?

Recommended Posts

Hello, can someone please help me identify fingerboard on my guitar. According to the serial number it was made in February 2017, which is after CITES was in effect, and rosewood was banned. But it still looks like rosewood, and it definitely doesn't look like pau ferro, but I would like confirmation. And does anyone know when exactly did Epiphone stop making guitars with rosewood fingerboards?

It's definitely rosewood.  Not sure when the pao ferro boards went into full effect but it's not uncommon to use up the rosewood they already had on hand. I've seen new Epiphones at guitar center with both types of boards,  so who knows. It's rosewood, so enjoy!

That is rosewood. The pau ferro did not show up in Epiphones until 2019 I think.
