I work for a Canadian artist that hires a lot of musicians from the States. We fly to Canada multiple times a year for shows & are doing yet another full tour where we have a box truck leaving Nashville with gear and guitars bound for the border. Ever since CITES changed to cover rosewood, etc there has been zero confiscations of our instruments. Could it happen? I guess... but I will tell you there are musicians travelling across the Canadian border every week on trucks, buses, and planes who aren't anywhere near as worried about this stuff as a few posters on talkbass are. That said, should you risk shipping your pre war Martin with a Brazilian board from Hoboken to Saskatchewan? Of course you shouldn't!!!! But CITES is the the least of your worries in this scenario. If you're an importer exporter moving multiple board feet of wood at a time across the border, that's entirely different, but how many if us is that realistically? I am NOT telling everyone there is zero chance of a border seizure of your instrument. I AM saying that for most working musicians traveling with a guitar there just hasn't been the horror story situations that this thread proposes. As I type this, I have two rosewood board basses headed to Calgary. One is a 62 reissue Jazz that I guess could be mistaken for an old Fender with Brazilian. I'm not concerned in the least about CITES seizures.
