Guild Proudly Introduces the Doyle Dykes Signature
Guild is excited to honour fingerstyle guitar virtuoso
Doyle Dykes with his own signature guitar, the Guild Doyle Dykes
Signature Model. The guitar is the result of an extensive
collaboration among Dykes, master luthier Ren Ferguson, and the
team at Guild's New Hartford, Conn., factory.
Crafted to Dykes' exacting specifications, the cutaway grand
orchestra guitar delivers a rich, full and balanced sound that will
please the most discerning guitarist. It's an incredibly articulate
instrument with truly stunning headroom and dynamic range.
"When I saw the guitar for the first time, I saw reflections of
my life and relationships," said Dykes. "The Duane Eddy
vintage-style 'G' on the headstock, the Chet Atkins-style fret
markers, the beautiful roses on the bridge that depict a heartfelt
family story, and theGuild name have all been a part of my life
since I was a boy."
With an abalone-trimmed AAA-grade red spruce top and AAA quilt
big-leaf maple neck back and sides, the guitar looks as amazing as
it sounds. The dark-tinted top imparts an aged look, and the
20-fret ebony fingerboard and abalone-inlaid bridge contribute to a
distinctively elegant appearance.
"I was immediately at home with this guitar," Dykes said. "After
playing it and hearing it, I'm convinced a lot of people will feel
this way, too. This is your grandfather's guitar and a whole lot
Other special features include custom D-55-style
abalone/mother-of-pearl fret markers rotated 90 degrees and located
on the bass side of the fingerboard, a slightly shallower body than
that of the standard F-47 grand orchestra on which the model is
based, scalloped red spruce bracing, abalone rosette, three-piece
mahogany neck with rosewood centre, 12" fingerboard radius,
stylized Guild "G" headstock overlay, extra tuner spacing to
accommodate Dykes' signature behind-the-nut string bends, bone nut
and saddle, and a pure gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Each Doyle Dykes Signature Model comes with a dark brown
hard-shell case lined with dark-green plush.
The Doyle Dykes Signature Model is available through authorized
Guild dealers. For more information visit www.guildguitars.com.
