I saw this story on PBS last night; made me optimistic about the future of American capitalism, and made me recall the efforts Rickenbacker has put in to offering guitars made from sustainable woods.

This is one big reason, of several, why I'm proud to support RIC over other companies that make instruments. It is pretty clear that they care about their environmental impact and aren't trying to skirt regulations, even in a state like California that is on the leading edge of those regulations.

I am very allergic to "Made in China" labels. I have this allergy for the past 7- 8 years .. at least. I'll do anything to find alternatives specially made in North America even if they cost significantly more. The only thing I buy without looking where it's made is my underwear. With more people like me we could make a difference in defending the North American interest.

I am not a big fan of Made In China either... partly because I have so many Chinese friends and family and I care about the Chinese people a great deal! While it is not true for all Chinese workers I think a significant number of them are the victims of what can only be termed human rights abuses, and I will end my comments at that.
