The Dowina (pronounced Davina) Rustica is a gigging mans guitar with its simple, but elegant open pore finish and Grand Auditorium body shape.
It consists of a Mahogany back and sides with a solid Canadian Cedar top. Both woods are known to give incredibly warm tones with a prominent mid-range from the Mahogany. This guitar will make any rhythm sound big and lush and any fingerpicked notes won't sound brittle or harsh.
The Fishman Presys+ pickup system is a tried and trusted on-board preamp that will give you a fantastic acoustic sound through any PA system. It has an on-board tuner as well as enough control to shape your acoustic sound for any gig. And if you do get any feedback, the nifty 'notch' control can dial out the troublesome frequency that's causing the issues.
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.
