Gibson Guitars was recently raided by police on claims of illegal wood usage. The American police is investigating the company for allegedly using illegal wood to make its instruments. The company states that "Gibson is a chain of custody certified buyers that purchases wood from legal suppliers who are to follow all standards."
This whole issue makes me wonder if there's such thing as illegal wood use? I personally have never heard of anything like that before. Gibson has always made outstanding guitars so this might be the reason why they sound so good lol.
Do you guys think this is a big deal considering there's a lot more bigger problems in today's world to deal with?
I hope this doesn't effect Gibson's quality in guitars.
