[NAMM' Taylor Doyle Deluxe Guitar
Taylor Guitars clinician Doyle Dykes unveils the Doyle Deluxe (DDX) guitar.
The DDX borrows from the maple Grand Auditorium guitars that Doyle has long favoured, and fits alongside the company's 200 Series laminate acoustic/electric guitars. Featuring a Grand Auditorium shape, maple laminate back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top, the DDX comes in black with a gloss finish. Like the DDSM, the DDX features Doyle's Chet Atkins-style fretboard inlays on the bass side.
Distinctive specifications include a scale length of 25-1/2 inches (the DDSM is 24-7/8), a narrower 1-11/16-inch neck, and Doyle's signature with the word "Deluxe" emblazoned across the headstock. The model also comes with Taylor's ES-T pickup, an under-saddle, single-source transducer which includes an onboard preamp and the same active controls installed with the full Expression System on other Taylor models.
