I don't like the headstock. Those little "wings" look like they'd snap off if you bumped them into anything.

To give you an idea on price the dealer said "the cost of the guitar is one child every month for 12 months with a 6 child down payment"
the guy said that with all seriousness these are ****ing expensive

No guitar would be one piece of wood, unless you have a friggin' HUGE tree.
But more pieces doesn't = lesser quality.

Yeah, in fact.. laminated necks are pretty much in every way better than one-piece necks. They're stronger, less likely to warp and the stripes look cool

they might be, but in several sections i'd imagine I think having several sections secured together provides more durability than one big chunk of wood plus are easier to make (ive taken this information from my uncle who is a skilled craftsman but not a guitar maker lol)

Sounds like you're a fan boy bro. You're obsessed with buying an extremely expensive guitar for now reason besides it being just that, extremely expensive. I have no doubt it plays well or anything, just you're being a whiny bitch when people mention flaws with it. :P

I'm just saying it won't break if you hit it with anything less than a hammer which would break a regular head stock as well
and guitars mad out of one piece of wood have better sound and sustain
also i'm not buying it i could never afford it. my friends dad is getting it and honestly its a piece art that plays music exceptionally well there other guitars that sound about as good but non look as sexy

Warping can easily be countered with truss rod
second of all hey dumb ass one piece of wood has no joints at which to break laminated does so tell me again its stronger

First of all, that guitar isn't that great looking, and probably isn't worth the price-tag. One can easily go and produce their own instrument that will sound just as great, given enough patience, planning, and execution.

Second of all, the fellow talking about the laminated necks is correct. Laminated necks are definitely stronger due to the bond, especially in woods like mahogany (for example). Mahogany laminated with maple, walnut, anything else, etc. is stronger than a neck made of just mahogany alone, for many reasons.

1.) Increased Structural Strength due to conflicting grains.
2.) Elimination of side-to-side bowing, see for example many older bass' instruments that didn't have a laminated neck.
3.) The Glue joints are stronger than the wood, which leads to increased strength in the neck, as a whole.
4.) I could go on and on with a list, but I don't feel like typing any more.

So, about $450?

That guitar is just bling, like anything "entirely handmade". Machines do the job just as well, but ridiculously cheaper. Like mentioned above, there's nothing particularly awesome about one-piece necks either. "Better sound and sustain" from one-piece guitars is voodoo, and truss rods in a single incarnation aren't designed to prevent warping.

And most importantly... it's just an Exporer.
