About Dowina Guitars
The Dowina factory is located between Bratislava and Vienna. Manufacturing started in 1979. Dowina started with the production of violins. Gradually they built up their know-how, experience and intuition. The result was fantastic instruments. Inspired by the violin makers' knowledge, guitar production was also started. A crucial factor for quality is the choice of wood materials.
Dowina retrieves wood material from the Dolomites in the Alps - Val di Fiemme. A wood with extraordinary properties in resonance. They also use selected Sitka and Cedar from Alaska and the western United States. This, together with great professional skill, results in unique guitars where the feeling, tone and appearance are outstanding for their price range.
