Dowina Guitars, based in Bratislava, Slovakia are a family based business that support sustainability from source. They are a small but friendly team with a passion for making hand crafted guitars. We were very proud to be able to visit the Dowina workshop in late 2019 to meet the team and absorb their company ethos, of which making wood 'shine' is their absolute goal. Dowina's designs are humble and organic, and their method of building the guitar to the wood chosen results in each instrument truly becoming a unique work of art.
The Master Series are completely handmade and are for those who appreciate a superior guitar sound and master luthier craft work. They are individually created with the application of the same construction philosophy applied to a master violin.
Each Master series guitar is handmade by one specific Luthier through the entire process - intended for professional players who require the utmost attention to detail, these are jewels for your collection and investment pieces with a rising value.
The Padauk is a beautifully striking guitar with African Strip Padauk back & sides with 12th fret inlay made from real padauk shavings - simply stunning. The top is made from solid Dolomite Spruce. This one comes in the Grand Auditorium body shape complete with a cutaway and LR Baggs Anthem preamp.
