Yeah I agree. It just needs some of your fake Gibson paint-on binding magic and it will be right as rain!

I know this is sad for you, but your trolling days are now over. What you did to that Tribute just put an end to that.

What brand white out do you use for your binding?
Equipment:
I have guitars, amps, pedals, cables, various other things and a strong affinity for short signature lines. . .

Yes, it is wood.

For goodness sake look it up before you embarrass yourself further.

It is wood and there is nothing wrong with the use of veneer on instruments.

The wood is good.
It looks as it should.
No need to sneer,
just 'cause it's veneer.

Let's be clear about that veneer- it's thinner than it would appear.
But underneath its grainy sheath
is simply wood to which it may adhere.

This is most likely veneer, to hide the four pieces of wood that makes up the body of that guitar. In more expensive models, you get a one piece. This will get you a little better sustain and response from the guitar body. As a beginner i wouldn't worry about a guitar being layered with veneer at all. I got 2 guitars with veneer. One is totally black so the grain wouldn't be visible anyway.

No read the spec, the body is a hologram with veneer floating on top.
