          Given the only production Les Pauls that don't have a maple cap are the R4 and R7 Custom (which are by far the 2 lowest selling models), you'd put it practically at every Les Paul has a maple top.

          What electronics nudging are you going to do that is going to make a Les Paul sound more like a Fender though.....given that the OP was about 2 humbuckers, and electronics usually means pots and caps for most people?
