This looks like a gorgeous guitar! 
Curious: are the maple necks one piece or is a maple fingerboard glued-on after (2-pieces, a la rosewood 'board).
Website says "available with a two-piece maple neck or rosewood fingerboard" which is a bit cryptic.
Thanks...

Here's the description: http://www.larrivee.com/electric-series

Cool video demo of the model here: http://www.frequency.com/video/larrivee-santa-monica-demo/219722510

Back in the past Fender made necks called maple caps.They would saw off the fingerboard part,install the truss rod the reglue the maple fingerboard part.

Yes... That's my question... Is there a slab/cap on the maple fretboard model? Guess the lack of a skunk stripe on the model in the video I posted hints that the truss rod is inserted from the front then capped w/ fretboard. Thanks.

Yes. That's how my Bakersfield's maple neck was assembled. One piece neck "back" with a fingerboard glued on.
