Here’s an article from the WSJ about US govt agents raiding guitar-maker Gibson and seizing some of the wood that they use to make their guitars. Interesting.

I can honestly say that i never considered this at all. Especially in terms of trees being harvested in such a way that it’s akin to the Blood diamond trade in other parts of africa.

Interesting. Thanks for the link.
