As long as the top is solid you are good to go. But yes there is definitely enough energy in the strings to drive the top and have the top couple with the back. Many luthiers think the ideal design is a solid top, rigid laminate sides and a solid back. But for the most part the top is where it's at. Still unless it's for budget reasons or you want a guitar to play by a camp fire solid woods all round or one with only laminate sides is going to be the best for tone.
