"I agree that the cherry laminate is an excellent tonewood. Since replying to this discussion a couple of years ago I now own an NE, and have been thinking about starting a discussion on the topic of tone woods comparing the Seagull cherry laminates…"
". Like Taylor’s other layered wood options, layered koa features an all-wood laminated construction, in this case with interior and exterior layers of beautifully-figured koa veneer separated by a middle core layer of poplar. .."
"Godin's Wild Cherry laminate is an excellent tonewood in its own right, in my opinion. My S6 and my S6+ Folk, with the cherry back and sides, are both lovely instruments, and the all-lam AMI sounds way better to my ears than my Crafter…"

I'm thinking that place may have changed names along the way sometime. Either that or my memory is even worse than I thought it was. (Which is entirely possible.) JM's doesn't ring a bell like I think it should. I remember Calhoun's on the square. I also recall a little restaurant called Spanky's that had really good sandwiches.
