It is clear this chap is a highly skilled maker and also has marketing and sales under control, he should be a rich man.

To use dovetails along the grain is structurally indefensible so if they are only for decoration they may as well have been inlaid.

Having two dissimilar timbers for a every part of a guitar body is unlikely to improve the tone

So it's all a marketing gimmick. Fine, so long it is seen as such, well made or not. It is not a classic example of the luthiers art or cabinet making techniques.
I believe you have summed it up quite succinctly there :D
