It’s been almost 3 years since the first raid in 2009 and almost a year since the 2011 raid of Gibson Guitars by the DOJ, yet Gibson says they are still waiting on the DOJ to charge them. The CEO of Gibson, Henry Juszkiewicz, says the feds have taken aggressive action against his company that has hurt them severely, and now he worries about the long-term damage to their company as a result:
Fox News’ report on this last year revealed that the feds wouldn’t have targeted Gibson had the imported wood been a completed fretboard, leading Gibson to believe that the Obama administration is simply tried to force American jobs overseas. They also reported that other guitar manufacturers who import the same wood had not yet been targeted by the DOJ, perhaps because their CEOs weren’t Republicans who have donated heavily to Republicans, like Henry Juskiewicz.
