  1. Read your citation from Reverb...it appears the industry is happy and it appears the changes that made that way came later...I marked the relevant passages. Am I reading it wrong? ========================================================================================================== On August 28, 2019, (this is August) the Conference on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) in Geneva, Switzerland voted to exempt finished musical instruments, parts, and accessories from CITES restrictions on all rosewood species except Brazilian rosewood. The restrictions on Brazilian rosewood, whose endangered species status and restrictions predate those on other kinds of rosewood, remain in place. As of November 26, 2019 (and this is after the August 28th), the exemption for musical instruments is now in effect, according to the CITES convention. The US Fish and Wildlife Service will no longer issue permits for the export of finished musical instruments, parts, and accessories, bringing an end to much of the headaches that have plagued the musical instruments industry for the last several years.
  2. I will watch this tomorrow but the CITES document I read appears to exempt musical instruments...is that incorrect??
  3. Impressive...I looked it up! You are right on the money...my mind is at ease!
  4. I agree...some guy working the night shift would have no idea and probably care less....but... There are horror stories in the EU about guitars seized and tied up for long periods of time!!

  6. I have heard it's a must go place!! The festival sound pretty fab! Just how good a guitar do they make there???
  7. Hello all you musicians... The Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna seeks to control the movement of certain woods and other flora and fauna. Brazilian Rosewood guitars are particularly susceptible to very close inspection. I own a 50 year Brazilian acoustic guitar and a Gibson with a Rosewood fret board. Does anyone know if these guitars would be of concern to the Mexican Aduana folks???
