I know about the CITES regulations, but am wondering if anybody has shipped a RW board guitar down to the US lately without the proper CITES paperwork. If so, any issues with customs?

I just received (I know, the opposite direction) a 2006 fender strat neck w a rosewood board. No issues other than CBSA/CRA taking their cut.....The description on the customs declaration simply said "guitar neck" and the package was not opened. I would say CBSA was probably more interested in charging the brokerage fee and 13 percent tax on the declared value than seeing if the neck violated CITES regulations.....
