T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Who will stand up: Feds Raid Gibson Guitar Factory (82* d) RE: Who will stand up: Feds Raid Gibson Guitar Factory 27 Aug 11


I'm planning an overseas trip, so I sent the serial number of my instrument to the manufacturer and asked for a listing of all woods and other materials used. The manufacturer, to my knowledge, has never used Brazilian rosewood, tortoiseshell, elephant or mammoth ivory, or white abalone in making instruments, but I want to have documentation. The manufacturer has used mahogany in some of its work, which recently was re-classified. I doubt there's true mahogany in my instrument, and it shouldn't be a problem even if there is since the CITES listing (so I am told) only applies to raw materials, but if I encounter over-zealous border guards I want to know the facts in advance.
