The Dowina (pronounced Davina) Silva is a Grand Auditorium shaped guitar with a Dolomite Spruce top as well as Pau Ferro back and sides.
Pau Ferro is a premium wood and is loved for its rich character. All the nuances will be brought out of your playing with the Pau Ferro back and sides and the Spruce top will add brightness and clarity. This guitar will suit strummers and fingerpickers alike.
The Grand Auditorium shape is considered the swiss army knife of acoustics because it handles so many different styles of music, so well. You can get a full, fat rhythm sound thanks to the bigger body but the square shoulders and narrow waist will give you more note definition for fingerpicked pieces.
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.
