This is one of the craziest guitars in our Shaftesbury collection and gets more inquiries than just about any guitar in the shop.

This is a seventies Shaftesbury Del Vecchio replica based on the Brazilian Dinâmico model resonator guitar manufactered in Sao Paulo in the 1930’s.

This bizzare beast is the only resonator ever to be strung with nylon strings. Chet Adkins was an early user of the Dinâmico after hearing it’s beautifully bizzare tones on the single “Maria Elena” by Brazilian brothers Los Indios Tabajares.

Spiritual descendant and fellow finger-picker extroadinare Doyle Dykes reportedly owns the Shaftesbury version and loves the wild tones he gets from it.
