Gibson got their wood back and created a new line of guitars out of the confiscated wood, called "The Government Series." I like that. Read all about it: Gibson Guitar’s new line is a middle finger to Holder’s unjust Justice Department.
If you recall, in 2011 Federal armed swat teams descended on Gibson. That is astounding to send in armed swat teams when unarmed men in business suites could have done the same job. Many felt the raid was politically motivated due to Gibson's owner supporting conservative candidates. Martin Guitar used the same kind of wood from the same sources and was not raided. The Nashville conservative activist community rallied to the Gibson cause. To read more about it and recall the events, see my blog post on the issue at the time.
