    Umm...WTF???
    This actually happened. According to Gibson lawyers the FED has arrested no one, have not returned nor given Gibson officials a statement or explanation as to what reason, specifically, did they come onto their property with handguns and automatic weapons and seized their property. They have not provided to Gibson, or anyone else, where did they get the information that the wood was illegal...provided any documentation whatsoever of said.

    This is a f*cking outrage. Where the hell is the media on this??

    For illegal wood???????? Are you serious??
    Anyone here realize how much Chinese paper is sold in America where the only proof that the pulp is certified is strictly by the word of the Chinese government??
    No one confiscates the millions of tons of suspected pulp.

    Yet they seize a couple pallets of wood of an American company without providing a shred of proof?

    Amish milk producers and guitar makers get busted.

    30 million illegal aliens get amnesty.

    Whose side is The Great Black President on, anyway?

    File this under priceless…

    Mrs. Obama presented Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy with the Gibson guitar on Saturday before the first ladies visited the Cathedral de Norte Dame de Strasbourg, along with the rest of the NATO Summit spouses. The Gibson Hummingbird apparently hit the right chord with Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy, as the Mrs. Obama’s office reported that the two women really hit it off and enjoyed a private lunch together that lasted for more than one hour.
    Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy is a former model, and is also a singer/songwriter. She has released three albums, the last of which, As If Nothing Happened, was released in July 2008. She plays acoustic guitar on many of her songs.

    It's probably a new regulatory agency that has been set up in this administration to raid guitar shop owners to make certain they're using the proper wood.
    Hey, no joke--if they're going to write new legislation for Goat herders--why not guitar manufacturers.

    Why was Gibson raided and not Martin? They use the same wood. And the issue isn't the wood itself, it's the finishing of the wood thats the issue. Under Indian domestic law, the wood must be finished by Indians. But of course that's not under US law.

    So why was a US agency attempting to enforce Indian domestic laws?

    This is just goofy.
