Please note: The guitar in the image is a dreadnought stock photo, and will be updated when these guitars arrive at Andertons. This guitar is in actual fact an Auditorium shape.
The Dowina (pronounced Davina) Arbor is a Grand Auditorium shaped acoustic with a solid Sapele back and sides and Solid Canadian Cedar top.
Sapele is similar to Mahogany in terms of tone as it provides warmth and mid-range, and the Cedar is known for lovely warm to-mid too. So this guitar will give you lush rhythms every time you play it.
The fingerboard is made out Ebony, so if you were wondering where the brightness will come from, that's it. Ebony feels great to play under the fretting hand but also offers precise note articulation.
The Fishman Matrix blend pickup system is a tried and trusted on-board preamp that will give you a fantastic acoustic sound through any PA system.
It's the flagship pickup system for Fishman as it will give you warm acoustic tones with it's undersaddle piezo system.
Who are Dowina?
Dowina are a company based in Bratislava, Slovakia where they build all of their acoustic guitars by hand. These guitars aren't mass produced at all, and this allows the luthiers more time to take care of each and every instrument as it's made.
Their creation process starts with wood selection where they take the utmost care in chosing highly resonant woods.
