Thanks for sharing this.. It was helpful.. but he refers to laminate as plywood which I don't think is correct.. they both are different.. plywood guitars come very cheap.. one of the articles I was reading read that even the sound of laminate wood improves with age.. however the change is not significant..
I think the term plywood is used "loosely", instead of laminated top or book matched wood. Perhaps there is a new vocabulary in classical guitar you may want to add: "tone wood", if you have not read about it already:
