Just curious as I’m no luthier or wood expert why EBMM opts for single piece over laminates? Naturally, there’s a bunch of conflicting opinions from luthiers and players alike, the general summary being that one piece is more labor efficient while possibly being less materially efficient and potentially less stable, while laminates are generally more stable and materially efficient while more labor intensive. I’d figure another operating theory is one piece lends more resonance and sustain by virtue of being one piece, however many luthiers are skeptical that it’s really noticeable. I’d also figure that one piece means having to be more selective with wood pieces.
No complaints or criticisms from me, just curious! The St Vincent and AL HH I have are about the greatest guitars I’ve ever played.
