To tell whether you have a solid back and sides on your guitar rather than laminated?

The easiest way is to look up the specifications of your guitar on the guitar maker's website.

It's a Tanglewood TF-8,I think the top's solid,I doubt the back and sides are. I'd also like to know for future reference,though

hmmm oh well. It's still a nice instrument, so is there a way I can tell just by looking at it?

^--With the top you can usually tell by looking at the edge of the soundhole. As for the back and sides, I cant tell just by looking. Perhaps others with a better eye for it probably could. I suppose if there were distinctive markings in the wood grain, they would continue all the way through and you might be able to tell by comparing the inside/outside. Thats nothing more than a theory though as Ive never seen it put to practice. Such distinctive markings are probably gonna be few and far between anyway.

Actually I was gonna post this. The guy at the music shop was showing me how to do that, so that's one way you can tell.

they will always state "solid wood"
if not stated, then its laminated.
