Dykes move to join Guild's stable is proving to be fruitful as he continues to work together with Guild master luthier Ren Ferguson and the team at Guild’s New Hartford factory. This unique nylon string electric instrument is just one of the two new guitar models to carry his name and approval.

Like his first signature, Dykes’ exacting specifications were followed, resulting what Guild describes as "a rich, full and balanced sound that will please the most discerning guitarist".

What makes this guitar special is its solid one-piece "chambered" mahogany body, mixing traditional nylon string design with modern thinline body. This results in a traditional sounding instrument that is more playable and comfortable to play and carry. It has a solid Sitka spruce top to give ensure that it does not lose its acoustic resonance and look.

The one-piece mahogany neck follows the premium theme of the guitar, carved into Dyke's preferred "C" shape. It is topped by an ebony fretboard with 24 frets, having a scale length of 25.25" (which is interestingly close to a regular electric) and a nut width of 1.89".

Doyle Dykes again opted for LR Baggs electronics on this model, featuring a custom designed Deluxe Acoustic Equalizer preamp with LB6 under-the-saddle transducer. Because of its thin chambered body, this nylon string guitar does away the feedback problems that plague traditional designs, allowing the preamp system to shine even at high volume.

Other features include an ebony bridge with bone saddle, bone nut, gold-plated hardware, white body binding, custom D-55 Style inlays and a mother-of-pearl logo on the headstock.

The new Doyle Dykes Signature Nylon Cutaway Electric has a premium MSRP of $5,499.99. You can head over to Guild Guitars for more information.
