How are we suppose to be creating jobs if we are shutting down the few factories left in the US? It seems to me that Gibson might be smart moving production to India and then there won't be any issues. The same thing happened to them in 2009 from wood imported from Madagascar, but no charges have ever been filed and the whole case is still in limbo. Gibson employs hundreds of people and if they lay those people off where do they find work? I don't know if Gibson is innocent or guilty, however they claim they have all documentation necessary to prove they legally imported the wood. I know we probably have a few musicians on these forums and they might think this is interesting.
