  3. "It isn't just Gibson that is sweating. Musicians who play vintage guitars and other instruments made of environmentally protected materials are worried the authorities may be coming for them next.

    If you are the lucky owner of a 1920s Martin guitar, it may well be made, in part, of Brazilian rosewood. Cross an international border with an instrument made of that now-restricted wood, and you better have correct and complete documentation proving the age of the instrument. "

    ......

    Now, how the F*&k are musicians supposed to do THAT? They can't just steal folks instruments...total bullsh*t...Lawsuits are on the way for sure.. What a (wanting to curse more...) screwed up world we live in. This is going to be impossible to enforce...Older instruments are grandfathered and often have serial #'s. Musicians are not distributors, leave us the hell alone.

    What are they going to come for next? They've closed down many of the bars and clubs that I used to hang at, made it harder for me to get a side-job at a bar/restaurant, they're coming for us in our homes because we smoke, they're coming for my vitamins and supplements, they're literally taking away property rights and homes from their rightful owners (as witnessed in the link above)...What the hell is next?
