In the suitcase on the left you'll find my favourite axe

Gibson Guitar was raided last week, for the second time in two years.  Were the authorities looking for drugs?  Nope.  Guns?  Nope.  They were looking for wood.  Gibson is suspected of buying illegally harvested hardwoods from protected forests.

I think I'm lucky - one of my guitars is made from Canadian cedar, Canadian red wild cherry and Indian rosewood.  The other one is maple and basswood.  If the black vans pull up looking for me, it'll be for something else...
