A jag would also be too heavy. I'd be curious how much a rosewood Mustang or Swinger/Musiclander would weight, it would probably be more manageable. A flying v might also be interesting. _________________

So it's a plywood guitar? 3-ply rosewood & maple.
I suppose you consider Alembics to be plywood too.
No, because plywood is made from overlapping lamina or "plies" (as are tyres) and Alembics, if I remember correctly, are made using butt-jointed stringers, more like the core-plus-wings approach used in many other guitars

I've read somewhere that you can call laminated pieces of wood as plywood only if each layer has perpendicular direction of wood grains to the previous layer, if grains are oriented to the same direction it is laminated wood. As far as I know for the bodies of budget acoustic guitars and top class archtops (Gibson ES335 for example) they use laminated wood not plywood. As well as for the necks of some Martin guitars (Gibson SG Zoot Suit). _________________
