The Bunya Feast was a regular gathering of indigenous people from around the Bunya Mountains in Southern Queensland.

They would gather to feast on the ripe nuts from the Bunya tree and to sing, dance and celebrate.

The Bunya tree also yields an outstanding soundboard timber - probably the best Australia has to offer.

Maton pioneered the use of this tonewood in the mid 1990's and have made some of their finest guitars from Bunya.

Bunya has an earthy, wild, evocative tone, a change from the conventional - but with the volume, tone and beauty to stand up in its own right.

Bunya is also a sustainable guitar making soundboard, reaching maturity in 80 years. Compare that to the 300 plus years it takes to grow Spruce.

Includes Original Hardshell Case.

This Pre-Owned Instrument is in Good condition w/finish lifting around the tuners, pickguard scratches, and some wear and tear between the pickguard and soundhole.
