Solid Spruce

Do different laminated woods affect on the sound of a solid top classical guitar?

In the market there are different brands producing students' classical guitars but when I inspect them they are made of solid spruce top with laminated rosewood, mahogany or nato back and sides while they cost differently. Would you guide me to know how different sound they produce?

The lamination tend to reduce the quality of the sound going through the glue. The result is a more mid range, less sustain sound. I think the type of those three woods will be less important than the lamination itself. The type of wood on these guitars probably has more to do with marketing.

Solid rosewood rejects some highs. Mahogany is more efficient, reproduces the highs, the mids and the lows, perhaps not so much the mids. Nato I think is similar to cheap Mahogany.

The different prices of the guitars reflect the quality of the fingerboard (flat, warp over time), and the quality of the spruce top, the general workmanship of the guitar, and perhaps the specific bracing.
