    Not true, they have eased restrictions but they still need to have all this paperwork, and it takes time. I don't think you 'll see MIM / Asia go back to rosewood....

    Ok, sorry.

    Plus, once the inventory pipeline gets loaded, it takes a while for that inventory to be used up.

    It's not a contention -- it's just the science of the process. You'll find several scientific papers on the process out there on the Interwebs that will state clearly that the roasting process embrittles the wood. Do the research yourself.

    Pao Ferro is a rosewood, just a different species, that grows in Mexico and South America.

    ^ Pau Ferro (Libidibia) belongs to the same order and family, but the tribe is different from Rosewood (Dalbergia).

    Where can one find that exception? I'm still afraid to try taking any of my rosewood fretboard guitars across the ocean.
