Let's have a little reality check here ... neither the Weir WY1 or Garcia GY2e guitars are made of plywood.
Both guitars have solid tops. Both guitars have laminates on the sides and backs because they were designed that way. The guitars were designed primarily for live performance, and it was Weir's belief that using laminates on the back and sides of the guitar reduced the propensity of the instrument to feed back in a loud stage setting. I can tell you that I did some gigs with my WY1-K with very loud stage monitors and the guitar never gave me problems with feedback.
The WY1-K I owned was about the most aesthetically beautiful acoustic guitar I've ever seen. Here's a picture of it.
It has a small, extremely comfortable neck that is very good for lead playing, the action was impeccable and it was about as easy to play as an electric. I found the tone to be balanced and pleasing unplugged. Plugged in, it was good, but not as good as the modern guitars with the Fishman Aura system, that's as good as it gets today, to me.
I prefer a smaller acoustic guitar, and I fell hard for a Gibson CJ-165 in maple and no cutaway. It was (is) about the most lively little guitar I've ever played (and I've played a lot of them) and it sits just perfectly in my hands. I traded the koa Alvarez for it. I play it through an Aura preamp live and it sounds terrific.
If you go and play some of the really fine boutique instruments, you will get a feel for materials and craftmanship that extends well beyond the guitars from Taylor, Takamine, etc. I think they both make some nice guitars, but go to a serious acoustic guitar store (not Guitar Center) and play an upper end Martin -- my D-41 Special has a piano tone that is not to be believed. But Martins are just the tip of the iceberg and they are mass produced ... try yourself a Collings, Bourgeois, Santa Cruz, Goodall and a Huss and Dalton. I played a Goodall Grand Concert a month ago that was to die for ... but for $5k, too much coin for me.
