6-17-2006--I want to
give a big thanks to Michael Wright and the great Vintage Guitar magazine for
the August issue story on Bunker Guitars the Magic of Touch "Stump to
Stage" by Michael. It is true I find and process the wood in a very
unique way so as to build you the best of guitars or basses. I also sell
this wood to other builders who rave at the quality and tonal quality.

of the Electronic Muting system, Dave Bunker
As many people in the tap/touch world know I've dedicated my life to
discovering how to make Touch Play easier and better. On my first patents
of the early sixty's I used the manual "felt or other object a few
inches up from the nut" to mute the strings.This worked, somewhat but
always left lot's of unwanted noise and muddy notes. The Electronic mute
eliminates all unwanted sounds such as hums, finger noise, slidding
In coming weeks I will add much more to this
content regarding the benefits that My Bunker Touch Guitar™ buyers and post
some of there dynamic new music and sounds not only on my site but on

instrument. Keep it up everyone your great, and thanks from Dave I
appreciate all of you.

OUR 9-11, NEW YORK
EXPERIENCE Ive had so many inquiries from our friends and customers who knew we
were in New
York September 11th,
12th and 13th during these difficult times that I thought we should
relate to you our experience. Myself, My Daughter Teresa and her Husband John left Seattle on a red eye flight which
left Seattle at
10:00 pm on September 10th and arrived in Newark
at 8:05am just minutes after United flight #93 took off to it's tragic
end in a Pennsylvania
field. When traveling from baggage to the Car rental area on the tram we
admired the beautiful world trade center buildings not knowing that within
minutes what would happen. On driving out of the rental lot we were told
by the attendant that one of the towers had been hit by an airplane. As
we left the airport we looked in absolute disbelief at the burning # 1
tower. The next time we could see the towers we saw a plume of smoke and
fire rise from # 2 tower. I'm really glad I didn't see the plane hit the
building I think it would have been just too much. When we reached our hotel which overlooked the Manhattan
sky line it was a very tragic and sad view. People we talked to were just
numb in disbelief, many actually openly crying. Soon when the first tower
crumbled manhattan was obscured with dust and smoke, no longer visible
across the water. Teresa and John had planned to be at the World trade
center in Manhattan
that fateful morning but thanks to a mistake on our original tickets and
a change of airlines they didn't make it."Thank God" We were
unable to get out on Tuesday because of closed roads but on the morning
of the 12th we started our drive back across America
with lots of time to contemplate the horrible tragedy that had just hit
our wonderful country. God Bless America
and it's wonderfully strong people who will bounce back and God have
mercy on those who did this and to those who would use this to benefit
themselves. And Thanks to our wonderful military troups doing such a
great job and sacrifice to protect America.
