Wood Shortage

Here is an alarming article about the serious problems in obtaining quality wood materials for making musical instruments. Real ebony and good koa wood is virtually unobtainable at any price and even Sitka spruce, which seemed to be endlessly abundant 20 years ago, is becoming harder to get and increasingly expensive.

This is a real problem, people. Not like that global warming yadayada.

Liked your response/comment on Morphine Life about "Kick Ass Jesus."

And I am sorry about the wood shortage!
