About the Guitars

My name is Dennis Kalkowski…I am an amateur guitar builder afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy-type SBMA…I have played guitar since 7 years of age and am now 61…presently the MDA Guitars team, which I assembled, and myself have built 180 gorgeous heirloom guitars that are of the finest quality, artistry and playability you will find anywhere. They feature beautiful handmade components created by this team made up of the most highly skilled luthiers and craftspersons across the globe! Over the past 7-8 years, we have joined together and worked diligently under a common set of design plans & specifications to create a limited number of these premium quality guitars. Every SLOWLANE GUITAR is set up to play by a professional luthier and double inspected to ensure proper playability.
All of these guitars are part of an amazing gallery of beautiful hand-crafted instruments created for a unique worldwide fundraising effort which will benefit the MDA. The company is called “Slowlane Guitars” and we are truly pledging to operate as a non-profit entity. A good portion of the net proceeds earned will go directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the Northern California Office in Roseville, CA, with whom we are working closely.

My team of luthiers and specialists are committed to helping me create these magnificent guitars as our way of helping give back to this amazing association for all they do for those who are afflicted with these awful neuro-muscular diseases.
