You might remember that I wrote about Gibson Guitars in March and how they are/were possibly using illegal wood for making their guitars. Their guitars that musicians are very found of as they claim these guitars have a better sound to them than guitars made from other wood.
Now it seems Gibson Guitars have admitted they have "failed to act on information that the Madagascar ebony it was purchasing
may have violated laws intended to limit overharvesting and conserve
valuable wood species from Madagascar".
That's a good start, however, I hope they will not continue on the same road. Perhaps it is time to check for different materials for the guitars or reuse and remake. We want to leave the rainforest alone for a while now, don't you think?
