At long last, the CITES restrictions on the shipment of musical instruments containing Rosewood has been lifted! This action came into effect at the end of November 2019 but we have operated cautiously from that point as the new rules / regulations have been filtering down to the relevant departments over the course of the last month. As of January 2020, we have been advised that no additional paperwork or Permit Application costs will be involved in the shipment of said guitars, so it's business as usual.
We will be keeping an eye on the situation regardless but for the time being, CITES restrictions have been lifted so proceed and purchase with confidence.
We thank you all for your co-operation during the restrictions that were in place from 2017 - 2020.
