Recently federal agents from the Fish & Wildlife Service shut down the Gibson Guitar plant in Memphis and other locations. Using search warrants, agents removed documents regarding the purchase of Ebony wood. Also inventory of wood were removed.

Gibson was not sure when they would reopen and continue business. This is the second time Gibson has been closed down for this issue.

Gibson is a non-union shop and a supporter of Republicans.
