I have a Silvertone Stratocaster copy, but I was just wondering if anyone knew what type of wood that is, or is likely to be made of, 'cause I don't have a clue.

Try taking off the neck and looking at the neck pocket...that should tell you if its ply or not.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.
I'm a retired Supermod off to the greener pastures of the real world.
