                                     The  IBANEZ –BUNKER – PBC  story


We get lot’s of interest regarding the guitars and basses we built for Hoshino (Ibanez) in the mid 90’s, These guitars and basses today have become some of the most collectable guitars of the present.


One of the great guitar designers and luthier’s, which I had the pleasure to work with when building these guitars, was Jim Donahue.  Jim for over 20 years was the premier designer with Hoshino of Ibanez guitars and basses. Our company, PBC guitar technology, was located just north of the eastern Ibanez distribution warehouse which was in northern Philadelphia.


The reason Ibanez asked us to build guitars for them was because of some innovations we had on our guitars which greatly improved the sound and playability of our guitars, these being such things as our tension free neck and other manufacturing technology.


Just one more reason to buy a Bunker if you want the finest guitar that money can buy.

The great band BTO endorses Bunker Guitars:
     Dear Dave 
The guitar is awesome.  I used it for the entire show (video shoot, live recording) in Winnipeg on July 1 and our front of house guy said it is "Sweet."
No tuning problems, great playability, very comfortable to wear and a great big tone.  The APC persuader in the bridge does sound a lot like it's single coil space counterpart.
The guitar has generated a lot interest at the three dates last week, thanks Randy
