Isn’t It Good Indian Wood

Isn’t It Good Indian Wood

Gibson was ordered to cease manufacturing and send workers home for the day when federal agents executed four search warrants on the guitar company’s facilities on August 24. According to Gibson, the Department of Justice has interpreted an Indian law to require that the use of wood from India must be finished by Indian workers. The Department of Justice seized several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars.
