For that money, I'd buy a Lute consort...
I don't see any advantage...

I read about the process to make such an instrument - from memory the two
slices are glued together under vacuum, to me it sounds like quite a costly
process. The guitars made by the inventor of this technology Matthias Dammann
cost 15 000 € a pop.

Interesting technology. As applied to a lute? Not so sure.
I suspect someone will but most won't as there is not really
any advantage and much disadvantage (the lamination process
for starters, workin with nomex or similar, etc.).
The problem this construction "fixes" is loudness. While there
may be occassions when a lute is too soft, making up for it with
an overly stiff soundboard would, I suspect, take away much of
what makes a lute sound the way it does.
