Bunya Pine is mainly grown in North Eastern Australia. Bunya has been used as steel string guitar soundboards with excellent results by Maton Guitars and Cole Clark Guitars, as well as many hand builders over the last decade. It is quickly gaining strong popularity.
Our timber is harvested from large old trees, the quartersawn soundboards we sell exhibit good medullar rays, are mostly coloured similar to Sitka spruce, boards often display pink, gold and blue hues. The tap tone produces a bright strong note, with good clear even acoustic properties.
Bunya is a harder timber than the spruces or cedar making it less susceptible to scratching and pitting when building.
