Hey,

I was looking at guitars last night and noticed this, it's a second run of mine.

Gibson has used the Mystic rosewood on a few guitars, the J 200 that was posted the other day, the 50th anniversary Bird, mine etc.

But I never new where it was from, I thought India?

These now say Bolivia? Bolivia shares a boarder with Brazil, are the 2 woods similar/comparable?
