I own only one laminate top guitar.....It is my campfire/play it in sun or sand beach beater/too much booze/great firewood if broken, guitar.
I originaly bought a WD32SW Blemish as a beater.....The first campfire session told me that the heat of the fire and sparked cinders had me watching the guitar all night and feeling the temperature of the wood.
Pretty torturous stuff.....The WD32SW is a much too good solid wood guitar, to be subjected to that. I just like the guitar too much to have it crack from drying out played at a campfire!
So I bought a Mint Hondo H-18 (Martin D-18 copy), Korean made, all laminate guitar for $75.00 CDN ($65.00 US). They are about $200 CDN new. It is obviously built in the same factory as those Yamaha FD01 and F-310 guitars. Fret board,top,back,sides,construction and stain are all the same.
Plywood Guitars do have a place....Cheap, and less prone to temperature variation, drying out, and dinging,with no worries![8D]
