Is the maple board separate (like a rosewood tranny) or is it like a one piece neck?

Not because of the looks, but wood filler tends to crumble over time. But then you can always redo it with real dowels. You can buy pre-made round sticks in every DIY-market by the way :)

Even though it was never proven, I like the mystique of the history of this guitar. All this talk about trannies has me thinking about Vinny. dielaughing

I sanded a CAR body top down to the grain, and one can certainly see at least three distinct layers of material including, primer, silver, and candy/clear. I chose to fill the divots with super glue prior to sanding (pretty good results) and there were a ton of them around the top horn. Good luck and keep us posted.
