: I have a carved 5 string and the top appears to be 5 separate pieces.
: One large piece gowing through the middle and separate pieces for the upper an lower corners.
: The back seems to be 4 separate pieces.
: Is this common? Is it an indication of the quality of the instrument?
: It's only about a year old but has a very nice sound.

Multi-piece backs and tops are quite common, as you might imagine, finding a single and reasonably stable piece so large would be difficult. Multi-piece (4 or 5 as opposed to 2) are more common in less expensive instruments, or perhaps I should say that two piece fronts and backs are more common in expensive, custom made instruments.
