Thread: CITES and rosewood

    Cites is currently causing a whole lot of behind the scenes trouble. Several brands are still working on getting built instruments into the US. As far as I know, many of these models don't use Rosewood, so it must be catching other species in the net.

    FWIW, I did bring that mandolin back to the US. The only paperwork I had was the bill of sale and receipt. Customs officer asked if I had bought anything in Canada and I said yes, the mandolin. He asked how much I paid and I told him. He examined it, noted it was made in the US, put it back in the case and into the trunk and told me everything was good and have a nice day.

    I'm happy that my worries turned out to be unfounded.

    Interesting perspective. Sounds like the stuff of a Steinbeck novel. NFI.

    That article is really sad. Makes you want to use nothing but species you can find in your own backyard.

    That article is a good example why all rosewoods species are on CITES Appendix II. Unfortunately CITES listing does nothing unless the CITES rules are enforced and China does not have a good record on CITES treaty enforcement. Unless China stops rosewood imports this problem is likely to continue until all species of rosewood are extinct. We certainly don't want all rosewoods on Appendix I when there are millions of guitars with Indian rosewood B&S or fingerboards.
