Dowina Rustica GAC

Unread post by Saul » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:37 pm

Anyone who has been reading the forum for a while will know that I am a huge fan of Dowina guitars. I talk about them a lot and with good reason. They build wonderful instruments with meticulous attention to detail and superb playability.

Dowina is a family business based in Bratislava, Slovakia and have been making guitars and violins since 1979. There are three ranges, Antique, Vintage and Master series.

The Vintage and Master series are all solid construction and hand crafted in their workshop in Bratislava.

The entry level Antique series, one of which I look at in this review, have their tonewoods hand chosen by master luthier Stan Marinov. The soundboards and bracing are put together in Bratislava and sent out to Cort in Indonesia where the bodies are assembled along with the rest of the guitars and the soundboard attached. The guitars are then sent back to Dowina where finishing takes place along with setting up and final quality control.

The guitar I am looking at in this review is the Rustica GAC DS from the Antique range and you can read the full review here.
