Me and every guitar player in the world that crosses international borders. Even when they ship their own stuff, International went dead with cites, a few maple and ebony's but generally even DNA's you didn't want to export, or import. The market had splintered into, EU, US, and countries, rarely legally permitting anything to go outside those lines. The global guitar market will now go back to what it used to, hopefully the customers will follow.

Re: CITES Exempts Rosewood in Instruments

Do you see the likes of Fender, Epiphone etc ditching Pau Ferro and going back to Rosewood (and Ibanez too for that matter?)

Interesting. I'm interested in both guitars (most of mine have a rosewood board) and sustainability.

Cites as applied to instruments seems to have been a bureaucratic nightmare. So I'm sure this is good news.

But do guitars really have an environmental impact?
I'm sure little compared to the other chaos in Brazil right now. But still...

Still seems hard to know how to also be ethical about purchase choices, not much info out there really.

Charles Barber, the director of the forest legality initiative for the nonprofit World Resources Institute and a member of the rosewood working group shared: “The exemption for finished musical instruments is a common-sense measure that resolves a key implementation barrier for the otherwise essential rosewood listing. It will remove a major administrative permit burden on CITES authorities that did not have any substantive conservation impact, while continuing to regulate the raw material that goes into instruments. CITES implementation resources can now better focus on the illegal and unsustainable global rosewood trade in furniture.”
To your question, I take this to mean "No."

Then that's good news all round and a rare victory for common sense.

Very glad they heard and came through for us musicians. Now, I wonder if this will speed up those Ibanez containers crossing the Pacific...
