I know some people will laugh but genuine question...

I'd love to hear people's opinions on whether the all hide glue construction on the 2017 models is a genuine improvement on the neck-only hide glue build of the 2013 model?

No difference....but its a cool factor for sure...

You will only see the "Tone Factor" appear for real in Violins and Acoustics when it comes to hide glue ....

The cool factor is funny though when you consider they used the wrong Glue.

If construction is proper, glue should be near irrelevant. Hide glue would make huge difference on laminents, like Sct mentioned on acoustics and violins

I'm in the zero difference camp. Way too many variables from one guitar to the next to attribute it to the type of glue used in assembly.
