Btw, the video reviewer gave "grades" for different categories, such as just a 5 out of 10 for sound. But for interior construction he gave a 9 or a 10 and for construction elements such as resistance to cracks etc, he gave I think something like 47 out of 50.

Still, the O.D. part of me wants to know what Martin HPL actually is. As I said, that link I provided to "clear up" the confusion only made me think Martin HPL is plastic, or more plastic than I thought. (It's a Soylent Green moment to me.)

But as others have said ... so what? It works. I know it's not solid wood. I know it's not layered wood (like in Seagull guitars). I know it's not what I think of laminated wood generally is, that is bands or strips of wood all glued and pressed together.
