    It's not that great since Brazilian Rosewood still can't be sold internationally, which means that one could get stuck proving that their instrument does not contain it, with the burden of proof being on the owner, not the customs agent. All of this has been discussed in the CITES thread already.

    The NPR Article has today’s date.
    Read it

    The thread you referred to is now irrelevant.

    I did.

    What I said about BR stands. Check the latest posts (# 772 and on) by @s_wood in the CITES thread.

    Appendix I restrictions still stand regardless of how one feels about anyone participating in the thread.

    One is always free to ignore them at their own peril.

    You are mistaken, I'm sorry to say.
    But it does mean that we don't have to convince ourselves we like Pau ferro. ;-)

    Thanks @Jim Carr for reposting this in the CITES thread. Since this isn't about a bass per se (but of course it's related to basses in general), I'd like to have the discussion there. CITES - What every bass player should know Closing this one. Thanks.
