Default Gibson headstock inlay material

What material is used for the Gibson logo inlay on the headstock of modern custom shop acoustics? Abalone? Something else?

What Iíve seen for the most part has been mother-of-pearl. I have seen a few Gibsons with abalone headstock logos, usually on instruments with rosewood or koa headstock veneers, but with their far more common trademark black headstocks mother-of-pearl just pops out more visually.
