Have Guitar - Better Not Travel!

Guitar Frets: Environmental Enforcement Leaves Musicians in Fear
 Smiley My guitars are staying home from now on! I'm not prepared to take the risk of having them seized by customs. It's fair enough that the practice of using timber from endangered species to make new guitars is stopped, but to apply laws retrospectively to vintage instruments being taken across international borders is ludicrous IMO.
What do you think? Would you take the risk?

Tea Party fear mongering tactics, all BS.
BTW, the CEO of Gibson is a republican,  and they are still on business. Enough said.

Really don't mind if you sit this one out.
