The story about the take-down of Gibson guitar is a little troublesome to me. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but it is odd that Gibson guitar is being singled out and attacked by the Justice Department using poorly written laws. As a musician, I am all for protecting our natural resources, but I also understand that certain woods and materials are important in the process of making instruments. There must be a way to do this and still be sensitive to the environment. If Gibson guitar is at fault, then other guitar makers should also be examined. If, however, this is just a political game, then it only brings shame to our our country and certainly can't help an already struggling music industry in a bad economy. What are your thoughts on this story?
