    In contrast to his daily bashing..............

    The Rainforest Alliance has been working with Gibson since 1996, when the corporation became the first musical instrument company to produce guitars using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood. In fact, Gibson Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz has been a committed member of the Rainforest Alliance's Board of Directors for many years, and in 2006, 42 percent of the wood bought by Gibson USA came from regions that were either FSC-certified or working toward such certification. In the next five years Gibson intends to increase that amount to at least 80 percent.

    Oh, so you're applauding something positive instead of bashing? You do know what forum you're on, right? ;)

    Seriously, I think that's a very important and forward looking policy. Even though guitars account for a relatively small percentage of the world's exotic woods usage, it nevertheless sends the right message.

    Oh, that explains it. The robot guitar can tune itself because it's made of "smart" wood.

    Possibly a "Government Mule" model.
