Gibson facilities raided by the feds

Workers at Gibson’s Nashville and Memphis facilities got off work early Thursday when federal agents showed up to seize imported woods. From Reuters:

In an affidavit, agent John Rayfield of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said U.S. Customs agents in June detained a shipment of sawn ebony logs from India.

The paperwork accompanying the shipment identified it fraudulently as Indian ebony fingerboards for guitars and it did not say it was going to Gibson, the affidavit said.

Scandalous!
