CITES Regulates All Species of Rosewood

New regulations are being put in place as of January 2, 2017 that will impact guitar manufacturers as well as any vendors or musicians wishing to cross a border with a guitar that contains any amount of rosewood in the body, fretboard, etc.

Here is an article that deals with this on a very broad level. For more detailed information refer to the CITES website or the individual country’s regulatory body such as Environment Canada.

The full impact on guitar manufacturers, retailers, musicians and the general public is yet to be seen. All we can say is “Stay Tuned”.
