Acoustic fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Doyle Dykes visited Sweetwater recently to put on a workshop sponsored by Guild. Doyle not only wowed the crowd with his amazing playing, but he also demonstrated his brand-new signature model from Guild — a stunning instrument with gorgeous appointments and special features requested by Doyle. Following the workshop, Doyle met his fans for a photo and autograph session.
With musical influences ranging from the country of Chet Atkins to the rock ‘n’ roll of Duane Eddy to the groundbreaking style of the Beatles, Doyle Dykes has developed a distinct, recognizable sound that is full of sincerity and soul. As a guitarist, recording artist, songwriter, clinician, and published author, Doyle’s talents are numerous. Guild guitars have always been a big part of Doyle Dykes’ musical life, and he still owns the Guild model he played as a teenager.
