CITES AMENDMENT FOR ROSEWOOD

October 1, 2019

Many of our players are aware of the restrictions that were placed on Rosewood back in October 2016 through international treaty known as the CITES treaty (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). In an effort to combat illegal trafficking of one specific African Rosewood varietal, all species of Dalbergia spp (Commonly known as Rosewood) were added to Appendix II of the CITES treaty. While this did not outlaw Rosewood, it meant that every Rosewood guitar crossing an international border required both inbound and outbound CITES permits to be issued – a process which can take up to 3 months per guitar and cost several hundred dollars.

This week at the bi-annual CITES convention, a Proposition was brought forth by Canada and the European union to exclude finished musical instruments, finished musical instrument parts, and finished musical instrument accessories from the new regulation. We are pleased to announce that this was passed by the CITES organization on August 28. This change goes into effect 90 days later. After November 28th 2019, no CITES permit is required when shipping or traveling with a Rosewood Guitar. (PLEASE NOTE, this amendment does not include the heavily restricted travel of the protected Brazilian Rosewood species Dalbergia nigra which remains on the Appendix I list of highly endangered species).

INLAID WORKS OF ART

January 30, 2019

In the late 1970's, Larrivée was one of the first to explore the modern day creation of inlaid works on headstocks. Today, Wendy Larrivée continues to create striking works on a canvas quite different from most artists. Have a look at some of her works both current and archived on our Inlay page. For more information on inlays and how to acquire one, contact info@larrivee.com.

Cloepatra, originally created in the late 1970's, is a breathtaking work a beauty. After a 35 year hiatus, she has been recreated and now adorning our headstocks once again. Every inlay Wendy Larrivée creates will always have unique engraving touches, so no two inlays are ever identical. She has been the primary force behind our inlays for nearly four decades. Maybe it's time to consider a masterpiece for your collection. Larrivée Inlays
