At Bunker Guitars, we know that the most critical part of a guitar’s tone comes from the woods and materials that make up its construction. Because of this, we have chosen to find and process and our own wood. With the large variety of guitars available on the market today, our timber selection lets the builder have an array of choices. By curing our own wood to stringent specifications, we can match various woods together. Our treatment denies moisture from changing the wood-seams. As a result, our warranty for the instrument’s life covers open seams and separation, often found in marginally constructed guitars.
Mahogany Is one of the most popular woods in today’s market. Because of its density, it is the right choice for most guitar builders. A good supplier of this wood is Exotic Woods of New Jersey. This fine company also locates much of its own wood and processes it for quality builders.
Most Maple neck-backs require a Hardrock Eastern Maple for strength if you are using a conventional truss type neck. Necks using our patented Tension Free do not need the Eastern Maple, as the neck will sustain and resonate better using lighter woods such as Western Big Leaf Maple. It brings a sound with most of the emphasis on the treble range.
