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.

Comments by designer 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 sounds. 
     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 

TOUCH NEWS September 2005

Great news we now have midi available on all our guitars with there electronic mute system. Absolutely the only way to go for fast no unwanted note midi play. It's simply amazing

We have succesfully sold all of our first run of new Touch Guitar musical instruments and have now added midi to the list of options you can get on the Touch Guitar™. And  "surprise" everyone is doing good on them and finding them a very broad and exciting instrument. Keep it up everyone your great, and thanks from Dave I appreciate all of you.

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.

The Quality is Superior to any other guitar that I have owned... Thank You So Much for Everything I am picking up the digital camera tomorrow so I can send the pictures to your email..
ps I Love the TENSION FREE neck That is such an awesome feature I will tell all about these great guitars and am going to talk to a few of the music stores and try to get them to carry the BUNKER line of guitars!
Once again Thank You
I will sing & play my heart out...
Tim Mercy
