How to tell if solid top

How can you tell if your guitar is a solid top? Mine looks like a solid top, but I want to be sure. I have a Yamaha FG336.

this is a laminate top guitar, the FG stands for folk guitar, not listed on the yamaha site anymore, most of them were sunburst, supposed to be a very good guitar, never heard one though.

If you follow the grain of the guitars "top" into the sound-hole, if a solid top, it will be continuous and not show the "breaks" associated with compressed laminates.
