I have owned both at the same time. Sold off the Artisan to get a new X30. When I had them both it was just a plain black carbon Artisan X20 and I still own my Cocobolo X20. I had these at the same time for around a year.

Did they sound a little different? Well every guitar I have sounds a little different but I would say blindfolded you would not be able to tell those two apart if they both had on fresh alike strings and all that being equal.

I'm with Emerald on this one. I just don't think the veneer could make much of a tone impact. Maybe a little but I don't think it's anything I could hear if all else was equal.
