I wasn't aware of the first raid, but any way you slice the pie it doesn't look good.

I heard they were there to arrest the design engineer responsible for the Reverse Flying Vee a couple of years ago.

i read that the first raid was for ebony and the second was for rosewood, specifically fingerboards. they said that they pay a tax on these and they come with tax export stamps from india, so the law should be enforced there, not here, as gibson has export stamps for these. what's really sad is, our country is being plundered by the big corporations and our govt decides to raid a guitar factory, to prevent a few guitars from being made. they wont stop the indians cutting down the trees as long as people will buy guitars, so its a wasted effort IMO.
