    Does an electric guitar count as a personal item?

    you expect a government bureaucrat to know this? Much less read your phone? Five years of going through airport TSA four times a week I know that they are making up stuff as they go.

    Yes as long as you aren’t selling it and are bringing it back with you. Shane from the In The Blues channel said he’s not had any problems travelling around the world with his rosewood guitars.

    In my experience, in North America, you treat them well and they reciprocate.

    So if you're challenged on this issue, how can you prove that you're not selling it & that you will be bringing it back with you? It seems like one of those things that are difficult to prove one way or the other. I don't even have receipts for most of my guitars.

    You may have oversimplified it but I basically agree with this. If the cost of Rosewood rose prohibitively and it wasn't profitable there would be no market for it so to speak.

    I hate to see guitar players miss out on this and won't be so judgmental as to say furniture is just practical and can be made of fake rosewood whereas musical folk need it for creative purposes. Then again, how many guitar fingerboards can be made from a solid rosewood Armwar? I have no idea how to spell this word since as a single man whose furniture consists of Guitar, Amplifier and TV I have never spoken that word aloud or ever tried to buy one.

    Furniture can be historical, and have value beyond just decor, having some archeological information about culture and behavior from the past. Not my bag, but I recognize the value of collecting and preserving anything from the past that has clues and evidence to things we didn't record, or appreciate at the time. You got it right phonetically, I think its spelled armoire, in the french fashion.

    You can't tell your theory to this guy. He went 100% extinct last year.
