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 Antique Series features personally selected tops, laminate back & sides and finished by craftsmen and women in Slovakia in a wide variety of materials, perfect for daily playing and practising with optimal price / quality ratio yet guaranteeing an unexpected level of sound quality & projection.
The Scetis sits at the top of the Antique series, and this particularly guitar comes in the classic Dreadnaught body shape and features a Solid Spruce top matched with laminated Indonesian Macassar Ebony back & sides - this richly coloured wood make the Scetis a stunning guitar with a huge sound and great colour combination with contrasting binding and rosette really showing the elegant design.
