I’m sure you’re just like the rest of us and have been keeping a third eye on the Gibson Guitar rad story. I posted about the raid a couple of weeks ago. If you’re not familiar with that, please read/watch that post – “Gibson Guitar Raided“. I’ve been anxiously awaiting for some type of statement from the US Government and it looks like there are some additional pieces of information. Below is a video (by NECN) that goes into detail about the issues Gibson is facing. This can definitely have impact on other builders, etc.
There has been talk about the concern of owning a Gibson and traveling across the border. This is what computer guys refer to as FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doom). Glad to see a statement regarding this by the Fish & Wildlife service:
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
“… we taret corporations and individuals who are removing protected species from the wild and making a profit by trafficking in them.”

What About other guitars? Like a gretsch white falcon? Ebony all over that thing. Is Gibson the only instrument being targeted?Reply

Itll be interesting to see what this does to the retail prices of Gibsons.Reply
