Good video! 

I like that this is happening...maybe it will start folks thinking about those other 'exotic' woods that they insist on for instruments and high end furniture, etc ?  ...and, of course, wood in general and how it's harvested.

It also makes me wonder if the ebony trees left behind on the ground weather well and are still useful like black walnut would be?  Was the ratio ten to one in all of those other countries also? 

I admire his stand although one does wonder why that's the first he knew of the procedure it took to find the solid black ebony?  I think that's a good example of how necessary it is to understand where 'things' come from.

Yeah it seems the guitar world is changing at least. The CITES regulations on trade in rosewood, for example, has lead to fender using pau ferro on it's necks. Practically no-one can tell the differnce.
My (beautiful matin)  guitar has a richlite fretboard, lamitate neck and hpl sides and back, and sounds amazing.

I really like that it's not made from rare exotic woods.
