Aesthetically and tone-wise, the Bunya top on this custom model, specified by Derringers, presents a very pleasing option not previously available. Maton guitars have gone above their already high standard with this custom build for Derringers Music. Not only that, these custom Maton SRS60C-BUN guitars are now available at Derringers Music and are travelling at the same great price as the standard model. What is the difference between a Bunya top and a Sitka Spruce top? AustralianAraucaria Bidwilli, commonly called Bunya, produces a more mellow tone than spruce and produces a more compressed sound where the amplitude peaks and troughs are smoothed to produce a warmer and smoother tone. The end result is a tone somewhat between that of Sitka Spruce and Western Red Cedar without compromising the dynamic range (tonal response) of the guitar. Both highs and lows are strong and smooth.
