CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.
Panther Guitars is now CITES compliant for international shipping of Rosewood, Ebony, and other exotic woods, harvested prior to January 1st, 2017. We will let the buyer know if there is any issue with international shipping and refund any monies if we feel we cannot safely ship a guitar internationally. Thanks.
