Dowina Guitars, based in Bratislava, Slovakia are a family-based business that supports sustainability from source. They are a small but friendly team passionate about 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 are hand-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.  

A subtle design and 4 shapes to choose from make the Rustica one of the most popular guitars in Antique series. A high-quality Solid Cedar top with mahogany back and sides delivers robust and strong tones. This one has a Dreadnaught body with a cutaway for easier high-fret access.
