In 1996, Gibson, one of the world's premier guitar brands, became the first in the industry to make some of its instruments using wood certified as "sustainably harvested" by the non-profit Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). By 2006, some 42 percent of the wood purchased by the company for its Gibson USA electric guitars came from FSC-certified sources. By 2012, Gibson expects to increase that to 80 percent. Gibson isn't the only instrument maker greening up its footprint: Taylor, Fender, Martin, Guild, Walden and Yamaha, along with Gibson, have signed on as partners with the Music Wood Coalition, a project of the leading environmental non-profit Greenpeace. The coalition, which is also made up of a half-dozen tonewood suppliers, hopes its efforts will protect threatened forest habitats and safeguard the future of trees critical in manufacturing instruments of all kinds. Eco-advocates and guitar makers alike fear that the spruce, maple, mahogany, ebony and rosewood trees that have been the foundation of the wooden instrument industry for years are being cut down faster than they can be replaced. The coalition's initial focus is on halting the aggressive deforestation going on in Southeast Alaska. Greenpeace has been in talks with Sealaska instrument makers who need a conscious. dependable source of resonant, CONTACTS: Gibson USA, durable and beautiful woods, www.gibson.com; Forest "These [private] lands are Stewardship Council, www.fscus. going to be logged," says Paul. org; Greenpeace Music Wood But with FSC oversight, he says, Coalition, www.musicwood. the forests can be managed org; Taylor Guitars, www. sustainably.

"Our goal is to create a demand...for FSC certified 'good wood' as the only acceptable music wood from the North American coastal temperate rainforest," adds Paul. Guitar makers know that the woods they've used for years might not continue to be had at the quantities and low prices they're used to, but they are willing to adapt: "Alternative woods are the GOT AN ENVIRONMENTAL QUESTION?
