CITES regulations

If you want us to ship guitars outside of Europe , you should read this!

CITES regulations for all Rosewood species:

When shipping musical instruments that include any amount (i.e. fingerboard, back, sides, binding) of Dalbergia or the other newly regulated woods out of Europe as part of a commercial transaction, each one must be accompanied by a CITES re-export certificate.

Even if the instrument was made with Dalbergia or the other regulated woods that were acquired before January 2, 2017 - such as a used or vintage instrument - it still must be accompanied by a CITES certificate and marked pre-convention.


We applied for & required CITES re-export certificates for shipping guitars out of Europe!

* Extra costs - 100 euro's per license!

* It can take up to 6 weeks for a CITES re-export license to be cleared/approved.
