  1. Articole Interesante (De Citit La Cafea)

    http://www.musicradar.com/news/gibson-responds-to-memphis-factory-sale-news "Following hot on the heels of last week's breaking news that Gibson is selling its iconic Memphis factory, the US guitar giant has released a statement. Against a backdrop of gloomy reports on the company's falling sales and mounting debts, the release accentuates the positive, while aiming to reassure locals that the company will remain 'in the greater Memphis area'. The facility, predominantly used to produce Gibson’s semi-hollow and hollowbody instruments, is on the market for $17 million."

    https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/interviews/mastodons_kelliher_i_left_gibson_because_they_treat_artists_like_shit_that_company_is_falling_apart.html "It was a lot of reasons. "I never really felt like I was accepted at Gibson. The communication over there is terrible. "They kept fucking up my guitars that I was asking for. I didn't ask for a lot - I just had a few certain things that I would like with my guitar - I told them I didn't want it chambered and they made my second guitar chambered. "All the guys I worked with over there - the A&R guys were getting fired left and right and the company just seemed to be falling apart to me. There were new guys who would come in and they didn't know shit. "It was a breath of fresh air working with ESP. They were interested and would ask me what gauge strings I played and what tunings I play - Gibson never cared about any of that stuff.

  7. CITES: Si-a inregistrat cineva instrumentul?

    https://blog.andertons.co.uk/guitars/cites "It does NOT apply to guitars (or other instruments) that are being traded within the borders of one country, but any time an instrument with Rosewood is sold internationally (or in our case outside of the EU) it requires CITES certification."
  8. CITES: Si-a inregistrat cineva instrumentul?

    https://reverb.com/news/new-cites-regulations-for-all-rosewood-species "A new regulation takes effect on January 2, 2017 that calls for documentation when shipping instruments internationally that contain any amount of any kind of rosewood or certain types of bubinga. It does not apply to instruments shipped within the borders of your country or instruments carried for personal use while traveling internationally [unless they contain more than 22 lbs. (10 kg) of the regulated woods]." Nu exista nici o obligativitate de a inregistra vreun instrument, si nu e nici o problema cu instrumente care circula in Uniunea Europeana. Probleme apar doar atunci cand cumparam (sau vindem) un instrument pentru care e aplicabil CITES din / in, de exemplu, SUA. Nu conteaza pentru Thomann, RGC sau Olx.
