Well at least you're conceding the top the sound boucnes is off doesn't matter. Hope at last.
Uhhh...you DO realize that, that glass top is A.) very thin, and B.) glued to a piece of wood?
And, C.) the hardware (the contact parts, were most of the vibrations are concentrated, and transferred) is mounted in the wood, not the top.
So, your so called "challenge" is moot.
Actually, I was trying to say that IME, even a thin "top" made of cloth or plastic could affect the tone in some cases.
Glass is a hard and resonant material. So, a glass top would probably affect the acoustic resonance in a clear way IF the bushings of the bridge were firmly threaded in it. But for obvious reasons, it could'nt be the case with a glass top : the bushings would have to pass through the layer of glass without "stressing" it, unless we'd want to collect crumbs or powder of glass...
Anyway, the Paul Stanley model has an acrylic top, AFAIK. A bit like a plastic pickguard on a Fender, albeit obviously thicker.
Now, if we imagine a layer of glass with the same "resonant frequency" and attack/decay/release reaction to vibrations than a top made of maple, it would be another story...
A bit of reading, since I've not enough free time for further "reflections":
Actually, that would be 400-600k.
