    Default 2003 catalog says mahogany

    Hey whats the deal?
    the 2003 pearl catalog says that Elx's are made out if mahogany, last I new they were still made out of poplar, can anyone clear this up, was that a misprint?
    Thank you.

    As far as I'm aware they've been made out of a mixture of poplar and mahogany for a while now.

    So I don't think it was a misprint.

    So when they were first made out of mahogany, were they with poplar or some other wood combo? Thanks

    I'm not entirely sure. When I got mine in 1997, the catalogue said it was made of a combination of mahogany and base woods. If you PM Gene or Raymond they'll probably let you know what the story is with the mahogany.

    They're poplar, 6-ply 7.5mm.

    I concur in the 2003 price list the Export is listed as 6-ply 7.5mm Poplar wood. 2001 was the last year we used Philippine Mahogany.

    Hey Raymond,
    If you look at page 31 in the 2003 catalog, it says, under shells, for ELX, mahogany.

    Please kindly advise of what Catalog are you looking at? Or what is on the cover?

    Thank you.
