Pantheon guitars are for those who appreciate a superior guitar sound and construction.  Each instrument is individually crafted with the same design philosophy as master violin work starting with superior tonewood selection – individual gradation of thickness of the top in specific areas to allow more flex near the edges resulting in a deeper, more detailed tone.  Every top has discrete bracing to tonally match its characteristics and is individually fine tuned to basic harmonic tones.

All Pantheon guitars are individually crafted for professional application by one of Dowina's master luthiers and are named after Roman gods & goddesses.
