RG1527 Rosewood type
In desperate need of help regarding the type of rosewood used for the fingerboard on my 7 string (RG1527 - 2003 model). In the process of emigrating from the UK to the US, and the UK Cites office say I need to find out what type of rosewood is used in order to get the correct permit (the guitar is going in a shipping container with my other guitars and personal belongings etc). I've emailed Ibanez directly both in the UK and the US, they said as the guitar was made in 2003 it wouldn't require a permit, when I queried that with the Cites office they said that is untrue, and the 10kg rule is only if the guitar is with you in person, obviously can't carry my guitar collection with me on the plane.
If anyone can shed some light on this it would be hugely appreciated, sorry for the long message.
