Actually, you find the swimming pool routing on lots of guitars: some G&L, most Strats before the new American Standard Series ...
Yes, some wood is cut out of the guitar - loss of mass and weight - loss of sustain/sound?
But: many people like to replace single coils with humbuckers and with a swimming pool routing, this is no problem whereas you have to take the guitar to a tech if there's no such routing - or do you want to cut out the space for the humbucker yourself.
If the wood that is cut out is sooooo important for the sound, why do humbucker guitars not generally sound worse than single coil guitars? There's more wood missing ...
