Laminated or plywood basses have been around forever, it seems. Why is that? It's not only about cost; it's also about use. Laminated basses are not subject to the vagaries of changes in temperature and humdity because the material is more stable, not prone to cracking. Laminated basses are also more durable in schools, where multiple players handle the same bass during the course of a day.
Some of the most famous old-school names in bass were pretty much exclusively laminated, like Kay and American Standard. All the old German and Czech makers had laminated models. And all these basses are still going strong five, six, seven decades later.
