Question CITES warrants for Rosewood cancelled ?

Hey Guy's,

I was dealing with a seller in the US that I was previously was trying to buy a Rosewood guitar from, he would not sell it to me in the end because of CITES Warrant etc...

But I recently message from him informing me that the CITES Warrant is no longer required an he wanted to sell the guitar....

I was wondering what is the story with this, is this true.. ?

Also I am currently trying to purchase one from Japan does this mean I do not have to worry about CITES anymore or what ?

Jay

I heard that the warrants will expire in November.
