I seem to remember that there is a cut off date ... so if your guitar was made from protected types of wood before they were made illegal you should be ok - i.e. most vintage guitars - and if your guitar was made from protected wood after the cut off date then you should take care.

It isn't just about the type of wood, but it also matters where it was sourced - so some varieties of mahogany are illegal, others perfectly within the law.

Beyond that you'll need to do your own research.
