Laminate (?) Peeling Off Headstock 4 Replies

I have a 415 Jumbo (2001). A year or two ago I noticed light-shaded rings around the tuning posts. These gradually got bigger, and finally I realized that they were sort like bubbles. I could pick at…Continue

Hey Paul, You wouldn't play the 410 once you got the 814 is an understatement! I have a 814ce Fall 2006 LTD and it is pretty amazing!

Mark ... I haven't played either one of them, but just looking at the specs in the review, they appear to be completely different guitars to me.  The DDX has a longer scale, deeper body, and narrower nut, on top of laminate construction.  Not that any of this should be considered inferior ... it just seems that it would  make the DDX play, and perhaps even sound completely different from the Doyle Signature. 
Sort of like apples and oranges other than the Taylor name on the headstock.

Thanks for the link, Jud - an interesting article that does a good job of outlining the differences.  Have you (or has anyone) had an opportunity to play them head-to-head and compare their sound?

Mark ... The July issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine has a nice review of the Doyle Deluxe and give several of the differences between that model and the Doyle Signature:  Here's the link:

Hey, Freddy, were you able to compare the Doyle Dykes signature model with the Doyle Deluxe?  I'm not sure what all the differences are, but I've been curious how they compare.

Yes it is Mark. And I  swear every day I play it it sounds better and better! Still has the Elixir strings on it that it came with.

Hi Mark

When it comes to guitars I am a 'buy and hold' guy rather than a 'trader' but they offered me a very good trade in amount.  Also I know I wouldn't play the 410 much once I get the 814.

Hey everyone, happy holidays!  I just ordered a T3/B in the honeyburst finish.  I did a BTO inlay on the fingerboard and headstock.  Anyone in the group with a T3 that can recommend a good amp in the 60w range?

Hi guys, I just found this group page.  I own a 1996 410 ce that I bought used about 5 years ago.  It had 13's on it when I got it but I couldn't stand that so I have used 12's ever since.  This has been a great guitar for me, but I am trading it in next month on a new 814ce that I have ordered.  

Comment by Mike on December 17, 2011 at 6:21pm

I've played it almost every day since I got it.
