This perception is real and could be very damaging to Taylor Guitar Co, and the only leverage Bob has right now is to force other guitar manufacturers to do the same.
huge demand by Chinese (just check ali ba ba for rosewood and ebony requests from China, some pay in gold?)

Rather than trash talking Taylor why don't we get on board and support his initiative. Everyone wins by supporting a good idea, no-one wins by opposing and spreading negativity...
I think, no matter what Taylors "true" motivation is
long term protection of the environment and material supply...and that sounds positive to me.
