Easy to say from a distance. None the less....Aye aye, Captain!
Tongue in cheek. Much ado about nothing, on the part of bureaucracy.

Gibson got caught breaking the law bought a couple of politicians who helped cut a great deal and now we move on until Gibson breaks the law again.

ebony fingerboards from India

I guess Gibson doesn't want to buy its ebony from Bob Taylor.

Duck I hate to disagree but if it wasn't for them and other agencies like them we woodn't have brazillian rosewood now and many other woods that we enjoy for there tone.Don't forget tusk{now considered ivory} that is used for nuts and saddle's,me I like cow bone and I like a good steak so I see no waste.I'm still trying to figure out what WAHI come's from as ivory is now illegal.Not trying to bust your nuts as I have great respect for you,just sayin I would like to see real S.A. mahogany again,I would hate to see the over harvesting of Canadian sitka spruce,Canadian Rock maple and other woods.

Not a senior expert but I have been in the retail end of the music business for a really really long time and I know stuff and have seen stuff that if I got into any detail I'm fairly sure that men in bad suits would show up and take me away. blush
