Some of us don't care to see stupid or foolish posts, but we put up with it...  repeatedly.

To change a bit the mood here, any personal experience with traveling personally with the guitar outside Canada to Europe? Or from US? Or any solid argument that the guitar can't be seized?

This is all pretty new stuff, but I understand you will get a "cites passport" for travel.  That does not mean that there will not be TSA screw ups.

Nice article in Acoustic Guitar Magazine where our own Matt Larrivée is quoted often. Sure does add some insight to the affect on the industry.

The article paints a rosier picture than some of the knee-jerk reactions presented in this thread.  It's good to hear from folks who have actually been dealing with legal specifics and not just speculation.

Ed Bond (Tinker/Halcyon Guitars)  typed up an extensive post over on the acoustic guitar forum about how much effort was involved in the permitting process to ship a single guitar (containing rosewood) from Canada to the US.

In addition to the cost of the permit, he loses almost a full day of work driving down to the permitting authority and dealing with the bureaucracy.

How the heck are the bozo inspectors going to tell the difference between rosewood, and some of its replacements like sipo, morado, etc?

I doubt they can.  The entire justification for this new regime is because the inspectors could not tell East Indian Rosewood from other protected rosewoods.

Under some glosses (and tinted finishes), I doubt they could tell walnut from rosewood. "The times, they are a changin'..."
