Not only John but other luthiers that also make very fine instruments (Greenfield, Somogyi etc.) make laminated sides. Although I make steel string acoustics it seemed to make sense to me to follow John’s process. I purchased this very inexpensive kit and was up and running in no time. The results were beyond my expectations. The laminated sides were easy to make and were far more rigid than solid wood. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly recommend this kit and John’s process. I might also add that everything I have purchased from John’s site – tools and materials – have been nothing short of first rate, and delivery has always been very fast.
