Doyle Dykes had a long run endorsing his signature Taylor model, and lots of them were sold. We don't know why Taylor and Mr. Dykes parted company or why Doyle switched to Guild, but it's clear the type of acoustic-electric he preferred didn't change much. The apparent Doyle Dykes formula has been followed: shallow body with Florentine cutaway, 1 3/4" wide nut width with rounded C-shape neck plus offset "Gretsch-like" fretboard inlays. The pickup on this Guild is an LR Baggs, with output jack in the lower side rather than through the endpin. But it doesn't sound quite like a Taylor Doyle Dykes, as it has the smooth bottom end and overall warmth of a Guild (the Adirondack top and rosewood body probably have a lot to do with the great sound). With Gotoh 610 tuners and classy bridge inlays, this is definitely a deluxe effort on Guild's part and was made in the Hartford, CT factory. It's essentially like new, and the case doesn't show any wear.
