 That can vary according to age and spec, as things tended to change over time. Could be plywood or solid wood. Easiest way is to check inside a body cavity....

I have a G5v, tart pink which appears to be made from layers of ply, which can be seen slightly in one of the cut outs.
The G5v that I have was manufactured in Kasuga, Japan in the late 1980's, I purchased mine in 1988.
I wanted blue but when I went to buy it I found it sold with the pink the only one left with the pickup config I wanted,
so pink I got, I have not seen another anywhere in pink.
