INTRODUCING BUNTING GUITARS
Guy Shapira and Yaniv Loria craft Bunting Guitars by hand, the old fashioned way. They choose the best components on earth to pair with their splendidly styled guitars and hand rubbed finishes. We're big fans and very happy to have them here at Chicago Music Exchange. Shelby walks us thru them in the video below. We hope you enjoy Bunting guitars as much as we do. We have them here at our 3316 N Lincoln Avenue, Chicago showroom so please stop by and try one out for yourself.
Spiro is a slab offset body with P-90 growl. A rock and blues guitar designed to look classic and familiar but with its own original vibe. Spiro was our first original model. Spiro was designed with the 50’s Junior tones in mind. What we feel is missing in modern takes on this design is a lightweight Honduran Mahogany body – it’s just not available today as it was back then.
We use Spanish Cedar as our body wood. Spanish Cedar is a relative of Honduran Mahogany and they share a similarity in character as tonewoods. It’s got the right weight and tone as was used in the 50’s. Spiro has a bolt on neck and wraparound bridge. These features give you more attack, punch and note separation which complement the Spanish Cedar body and P-90 combo.
The Melody Queen is an offset guitar that can go from sweet cleans that cut through the mix to explosive fuzzed out bliss. In all cases the Melody Queen reigns supreme! Let your new queen take you on a trip of exploration – From Surf to Grunge to Indie to Experimental – Wherever your flow leads you, just remain loyal to your Queen and you’ll be rewarded with glorious, inspiring tones. The Melody Queen features some great hardware: A Mastery offset bridge, which is without a doubt the best on the market. A Duesenberg Tremola tailpiece – this has the perfect style and functionality, and offers some great improvements over its ancestor. Last are the locking Gotoh tuners – an excellent combination of vintage looks with modern benefits.
The FB version cooks up a different flavor of offset sound. This is a Humbucker that comes close to a single coil tone, but with some added chime and earlier breakup. Firebird pickups use a blade magnet to get their unique sound – this is not your dad’s PAF sound! These pickups shine in the Melody Queen.
Alice EP is the essence of Rock’n’roll – A cheeky short scale guitar that rocks hard! Its 50’s inspired look and specs is a shout back to a time when all you needed were 6 strings, a pickup and a small amp in your parents’ garage to deliver the next big riff! With Alice EP we wanted a guitar that delivers fierce Rock’n’roll tones.
At our most affordable price range. Alice EP is based on a Jr. style guitar in tonewoods and pickup but comes in a shorter scale length of 24.5″. The short scale gives you looser strings, that means easier playing and you can use heavier gauge strings to get a bigger sound while still retaining great playability The Alice EP is a bolt-on neck guitar with a single P-90 pickup. A ‘T’ style half bridge, brass saddles and strings through body design are used for a sweet midrange bite and a hint of twang.
