Solid is important in the instrument world because solid wood (and bamboo) resonates evenly. That resonance helps determine the volume, decay and sustain of the instrument. Resonance is extremely important to acoustic instruments, but it's extremely important to avoid it in loudspeakers. It seems that laminate bamboo is a more rigid material than solid, which would make it preferable for loudspeaker cabinets.
