Guitar Frets: Environmental Enforcement Leaves Musicians in Fear | Postmodern Times - WSJ.com

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. Otherwise, you could lose it to a zealous customs agent—not to mention face fines and prosecution.



...Wanting to curse...and then curse some more...Too angry to write or comment further. We need a new government. What happened to the Liberals? Where have they all gone? You, know the ones that actually care about LIBERTY, JUSTICE, COMMON SENSE,and FREEDOM..Where are they? Have they all been abducted by space aliens?
