If rosewood will no longer be available I think we need to buy more guitars now Cool


This idea merits further consideration.

They'll just replace it with baked apple, like Gibson when they had all their rosewood impounded.

So maple wood is safe for now? thank god, I love maple neck guitars. But this thread is convincing me to hold onto all my rosewood fretboards in case shit hits the fan. Then maybe a nice price increase for them Very Happy
Another start-up idea, try and make a start-up company to recycle rosewood guitars, for those stubborn old fashioned.
Also, I like the idea someone mentioned earlier with a Start-up company to create a woodless neck and/or body.
Lets see what time has in store for us.
And I'm down for a start up if the end of rosewood comes. I can see that as s potential thing to capitalize on.
