This thin 000 depth doesn't lend itself to good acoustic sound.

I may be wrong, but I don't think this is a laminate in the sense that a low end guitar is a laminate. The veneer is so thin that it will add very little stiffness to the back. That said, I would prefer that they had not used the veneer, unless the grain of the Khaya is just butt ugly.

All in all, I like the innovation and would like to give one a try. For me, it all comes down to the acoustic sound. I really don't care about plugging in. I'd like to see this neck design on a traditional-shaped Martin with the traditional Martin sound.
