Sapele as a tonewood?

I was working with some Sapele today for a project around the house and it's stunningly beautiful... I have enough leftover at 1 3/4" to make a tele style body... Any thoughts?

I know it's similar to Mahogany, but does it sound similar... I was thinking, Thinline tele style body... quilted maple top with a sapele body...
