MarkS Who will stand up: Feds Raid Gibson Guitar Factory (82* d) BS: Feds raid Gibson factory 26 Aug 11


On Wednesday the Fed DOJ raided the Gibson factories in Memphis and Nashville, taking with them pallets of wood.
They say they were checking to see if the ebony and rosewood used in the higher end instruments was legal. These species are apparantly now protected and prohibited from importation.
Another concern is that if you have a vintage guitar you may be in illegal possession of these wood species. And really look out if your try to cross an international boundry with you instrument.

Sorry I cannot post the link, but a search on google ought to get you to the right articles.
