Not trying to cause a problem but that board is probably rosewood, not ebony.

Similary not trying to cause any issues, but why do you lean in this direction. *IF* it's a pro deluxe - no reason that I can see to doubt that - it would have an ebony board, no?

What leads you to a different conclusion?

I’m not familiar with that model’s specs, it just looks like rosewood with the openness of the pores and the amount of brown that is visible.

It is ebony. Not all the (gabon) ebony has a glass surface, I've seen (and had/have) plenty of similar looking ebony boards. That depends on the tree and sawn.

As for the brown, same as before, not all ebony was pitch black and it's easy to make it looking brighter under flash lights.
