Outrageous Amount of Guitar for the Money

I had been in the market for a 'decent' (entry level, all solid) acoustic but the jump to this, and other Dowina's in general, after testing around 10 guitars, was significant. I'm utterly thrilled and inspired with what i've decided on in the end.

A few thoughts which may be helpful as there's isn't a huge amout of information available on these guitars - possibly a good thing to test 'blind' without getting into spec-manship betyween models. It isn't the easiest of guitars to play - the Pure range had great feeling slim necks, this has a substantial soft-V which I really enjoy the feeling/challenge of but you should probably test for yourself if you're considering a GAC. I didn't ask for any set-up changes from the factory, it maintains a reasonably high action on the low-strings which helps the sound without being overly challenging to fret. The guitar is a touch neck-heavy, not really an issue as you're usually bracing the body in place when playing. The 22nd fret for the high E and B string doesn't ring out well, I would have done without this feature; it's hanging over air which could be the reason, looks nice though.

Less obvious things that I like; the Grover tuners are great, no slop whatsoever. The finish and attention to detal on the nut, frets, general consmetics is unbelievable. I really fell in love with the punchy, energetic tone and almost uncanny sustain it has in some positions; it seems to have the highs I was craving but with a focussed low end and present mids. It feels like a great all-rounder for me, however if you were looking at this model to begin with (and with a bit more budget head-room), it'd be really interesting to test the different wood combinations on other GACs to find your favourite. I hope I get another opportunity to come and try guitars again at Richard's some day!

Quite simply the Dowina Ceres sent to me by Richard & his team is an instrument of unbelievable quality and set up to perfection.This hand built guitar is an absolute joy to play and its tonal quality is incredible.
I cannot recommend it highly enough & it is without doubt the finest guitar I have ever bought - thank you Richard for bringing this instrument into my world!
