The last Traveler Guitar that I ordered here was impounded by German customs because of nature protection law. The usage of the "rosewood" which the customs declared as "dalbergia spp." wood and which is nationally listed as protected wood, seemed to be the issue here. I would really want to buy this guitar. Especially since it is now the "Pro-Series" version but I do not know if it will be impounded again for the same reason. (On a side note: Big thanks for the amazing drops and the quick refund Massdrop! Eventhough I do not even know what happened to the guitar I ordered that got impounded and if Massdrop was ever able to retrieve it...)
I had a brief read of the specs and this one is made out of Maple, not Rosewood. And yes rosewood things and banned from production/sales since early 2017 I believe.
In the specs it says: "Fingerboard: Ebonized rosewood". So does that mean it will get impounded?
I'd advise you to check that with customs, and reach out to @Traveler_Guitar so see if they have any info on that! GL
