Two piece rosewood boards

Question: Are these 2 pieces one on top of the other to acheive normal thickness,or two narrow pieces glued together in the center running the length of the neck.

No big deal. If Gibson hadn't been forthcoming, with that info, we would probably
never known, as those fingerboards are bound, so the seaming would be invisible.
If anything, it probably makes them stronger? Who knows? Time will tell, no doubt.
It's been speculated, that it's one way, they get around the ban, on thicker cuts, of
Rosewood, for fingerboards. ??? Necessity, can indeed, be the mother of invention.

Custom Shop. While it will undoubtedly make it stronger, the question becomes
how will it affect the tone? Some will say a little, some will say a lot, some
won't care. If you're a long-tenon player, you might not want a 2 piece FB.
But I honestly doubt many people will/would notice the difference.
