I have a very similar Vox Clubman guitar - how do you determine the body wood? You suggest it may be laminate or mahogany

There are several ways - typically the mahogany bodies are thicker - but the surest way is to look at the unpainted area in the neck pocket (take the neck off) - mahogany is a rich mid brown colour - the laminate wood will typically be a much paler colour. In many instruments the laminations may even show through the finish on the guitars edges. Finally, the laminate bodies tended to be used on the early sixties guitars - if yours is mid or late sixties it will most likely not have a laminate body (although there are most likely exceptions)
