Your Experience is our priority

In June 2024 I visited the Dowina Guitars Workshop

When Richard Met Dowina Guitars...

The time I spent at the Dowina workshop was without question the pinnacle experience of my 29 years in the guitar industry.

I do hope this short video comes close to bringing you the emotions I felt but also the spirit of Dowina that makes them so uniquely special.
