Looks like an overpriced laminate MISP (musical instrument shaped product) sold purely for the name on the headstock. And at least other manufacturers who do that -- Martin, Taylor, Gibson... the list goes on and on -- are in the business of making, you know, guitars.

The spruce top is glued on top of the cheaper wood. Same goes for the back and sides.

Not quite. Laminate just means it's several thinner layers glued together. It doesn't vibrate as freely as a single, solid piece of wood, so it won't produce as good a sound. (At least, very generally speaking.)

In lower price ranges, it's safe to assume laminate unless the description specifically states "solid". You might see fancy descriptions like "select pressure-tested spruce," but that's still laminate.

Usually, you at least want a solid wood top, since that's what vibrates with the strings and produces the guitar's sound. It's common to have a solid top and laminate back and sides -- that's fine, since the back and sides mostly reflect the top's sound and don't have to be nearly as resonant. Yamaha makes a solid-top acoustic, the FG700S, for $200; once you get to about the $300+ range, anything without at least a solid top is akin to highway robbery.
