I have a Kenny Hill Estudio, which has a solid top and laminate back and sides. I also have a Kenny Hill Player, which is all solid wood. There is a very small difference in the sound of the two guitars, but it is not significant. The Player has a little better sustain, and I think the notes are ever so slightly clearer. ....but the Player also costs about twice what the Estudio does.
