Wow! I mean wow!
This is federally subsidized environmental mitantism. Seriously, they couldn't just get a guitar to see what kind of wood it was made of? They had to raid the offices and shut down their business over a few stupid trees?

One word: Assholes.

It is hard to imagine that if Gibson is buying illegal wood that they would have to know it, I would think they would have to pay a premium for that wood. If they do not know then they should go after the supplier


#3

There are a lot of federal agencies doing anything they possible can to justify their existence right now.

Expect more lunacy with big budget cuts looming on the horizon.

*Crosses fingers and hopes his guitar is made from illegal (exotic and awesome) wood.
