CITES - Regulation of Rosewood
I see everybody posting their guitars are late so consider this an explanation thread.
Possibly different in Europe/Asia, but,
If it had not cleared customs before the ban took effect 1/2, it has not left the port. Nothing has come in this year, nothing. In the US, supposedly all the permitting has been finalized, but the ports are now the backlog as they have to try and start clearing the thousands of containers that have been held.
HUSA is going to get buried in 4 months worth of shipments probably within a few weeks, or all at once. Which will create the next backlog in not enough personnel to handle the volume [expect even faster QC so everybody should be triple checking anything bought that is current/new]
I don't see this working any smoother for quite some time.
