Pros: No glue to hamper tone. better tone. more durable(maybe),
Cons: Price, Rarity, economicality, weight.
really not worth it, as large peices needed for a body dont come along too much. And companies charge alot for em.

Not so much....the glue tends to strengthen the wood in all the cases I've seen. Multi-piece bodies are, if anything, more durable than one-piece.

glue is stronger than wood


some people claim to hear a difference. Go for it if it floats your boat. I'm happy with a 2 or 3 piece.

I've got a one piece mahogany body, and it makes, well no difference in my opinion.
cost more for no apparent reason.

you could say, if your going to glue it yourself, it will be less hassle to buy one piece, but other than that, just save your money and go for glued pieces

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE

you'll hear a tonal difference between woods....but hear the glue between the pieces??? B.S.!!!!

funny thing is, one piece bodies have the neck either glued or bolted in. what do you think will sound better, a bolt/set neck on a 1 piece or a 3 piece neck thru to 2 body wings?? i'll take the latter please

The only real advantage is if you're after the looks on a clear finish, but a well joined two-piece can look every bit as good.
