Today’s Les Paul Studio SmartWood, made from an ever-changing supply of exotic tonewoods, underscores this continuing commitment to sustainable forestry management. 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 of these musical instruments will be donated to benefit the Rainforest Alliance.
