I only laminate the less stable and more brittle woods like quilted sapele, ziricote and the ebonies. I also do not consider the choice of interior laminate as having a critical effect on the tone of the instrument. For the darker woods I'll use a darker interior veneer, usually EIR. For lighter woods I generally use either sapele or cherry, occasionaly maple. West System is my adhesive of choice for this process. However, I know of other makers who use fish glue and even Gorilla Glue with great results.
