1.     

The Exciting:  1976 Bunker "Galaxy Stealth Bass"

 

2.      This is the first Left handed Galaxy Stealth bass. None were built in the original 1970’sseries!

3.      The pickups are hand wound, single coil, with alnico5, inch round by 1 inch long magnets. Double shielded with copper inside and separate chrome surround tubes. Each pickup has a 2.2 k ohm output, an have the option of being single coil outputs, at 2.2k ohm, or parallel 8.8k ohm output.

4.      The wood is big leaf western flame maple, and was logged, milled, and processed by Dave Bunker. Each wing has interior cavities, for proper balance and weight characteristics. Also the wing cavities are used for ad on “Electronic mute system”, when used.

5.      The “Bunker Individual Bridges”, are excellent in isolating strings, one from the other, which eliminates almost all cross talk, creating a more positive and explosive reaction from the string. (Less of a muddy sound)

6.      The “Tension Free,” neck is a patented feature on all Bunker Guitars, and eliminates all dead spots, commonly found on many basses. It also takes all of the string pull off of the fingerboard, and extends the sustain qualities of each note.
