      I wonder if Madagascar Rosewood is included ?

      It was my understanding that SCGC was not going to use Madi on any new instruments and has not used it for several years…….anyone know .

      The only dalbergia still on the list is Brazilian, dalbergia nigra.

      Madrose is dalbergia baronii and it’s ok to trade in again.  Madrose is still pretty endangered, though.  It’s the same for African Blackwood, dalbergia melanoxylon, which is getting hard to find in wide pieces.  Both are great materials but at their current rate of consumption, they’ll be on CITES 1 with Brazilian in the not-too-distant future.
