The Feds have got all of the warranty info..taken during the raid... Now there is talk of visiting individual owners of guitars, and unless you can prove all of the ingredients of the instrument, it will be confiscated.

I do not know if it will come to this... but the problem has gone this far.

In recent days, Gibsons CEO has gone on a counterattack, telling various talk radio and TV news programs that the raids are an outrageous abuse of federal power that have unfairly singled out his company, perhaps for political reasons.

Environmentalists with whom Gibson has tried to work since the 2009 investigation have had a muted response to the most recent episode.

The Justice Department and U.S. Fish and Wildlife agents declined to comment last week, citing the ongoing investigations.

What is going on here?
