    heya

    I have an aussie made cole clark tele.real nice guitar . its listed as bunya body, blackwood neck,rosewood fret board .

    Its neck SC bridge HB set up and i am going to swap it over to double bucker . I'm just not a single guy .

    I play heavy music and am really impressed with the bareknuckle nailbomb set in my maton so am going to go a different set for the tele. trying to decide which set . leaning towards miracle man

    Problem Bunya seems an unkown factor as an electric tone wood. Anyone know what other wood it would compare to tone wise ?

    No Idea about electric, but I have a Cole Clark Acoustic with a bunya top. From what I understand, it's used because of its similarity to spruce, so the tonal characteristics are probably similar in an electric. For what it's worth I prefer bunya to spruce on CC guitars (just sounds warmer and fuller), but I don't know how that translates to Electrics.
