Might not impress anyone, but I have an old Kramer solid strat type with an actual laminated body, and it sounds just great...Nearly all current arch top guitars, no matter how costly or big-name, use laminated tops, backs and sides...they are far stronger and resistant to warpage, and it has been found that - with electric guitars - there is greater resistance to feedback and no discernible difference in tone...
With solid body guitars, the wood itself has far far less input into the amplified tone than most people believe...People make Telecasters from pine and everything else, and they sound great. A lot of "common knowledge" about guitars and tone is salesmanship and repetition of someone else's bad information.
I've heard that pine is an excellent wood for guitar bodies, but hardly anyone uses it because it is considered ugly. Its ok for high-end knotty pine paneling and house interiors though.
I don't find them ugly...
Well, maybe some are ugly, but definitely many are NOT...

They are pretty popular among Tele builders...some use very old aged dry barn wood...
This one wins.
It's here! I ordered it in August and it just arrived.
Is it just the lighting or is the cherry that dark? If it is that dark IRL...
They are pretty dark, but not as dark as that picture makes it look. They are darker than the earlier models. Almost a burgundy color.
Nice guitar. I had one of these a few years ago, Yes, it was some type of plywood. Yes, it was heavy. The tuners sucked. Replaced them all.
It sounded great and played great though. I sold it because I was planning on buying a Gibson. Never bought one and would love to get another Epiphone version for now..
