Be the first to review Patrick James Eggle 96 Drop Top, Roasted Maple Neck, Pau Ferro Fretboard, Myrtlewood. Write a review ›

Ordered and Spec'd by us here at Sound Affects, more a natural beauty this time - the stained Myrtlewood top is stunning both in photos and in person. With a satin top and neck finish, the guitar feels very much 'wooden' and natural to the hand, and the light Nitro finish feels as if it lets the guitar breathe - Patrick's usual bright tone, with heaps of overtone content.

Patrick James Eggle built his first guitar at the age of fifteen as a school project. By the time it was complete, he was already dissatisfied with the results and decided to pull it apart and start again from scratch. So started a lifelong obsession.

In the 30 years since, Patrick has gained wide experience of designing, building and repairing all types and styles of guitar. In the early nineties he ran guitar production at the company in Coventry, England, which also bore his name.

By 1994, the work of organizing large scale production of solid body guitars, had lost its appeal and he left the company to work alone, filling his time with repairs and building bespoke stringed instruments.

Patrick was already well known in America for his hand built archtop and electric guitars, but was beginning to concentrate solely on designing flat top acoustic models. With this in mind Patrick, his wife and young sons moved to a new home and workshops in the mountains of North Carolina to be closer to the spiritual home of the acoustic guitar.

Whilst there he quickly gained a reputation for uncompromising quality and tasteful design, consequently forming partnerships with some of the finest guitar shops in the US along with forging great relationships with like-minded musicians and luthiers.

Patrick and the family returned to England in 2005 and opened new purpose built workshops in Oswestry. All design and production is now completed in this beautiful area of Shropshire and the results are shipped to guitar aficionados, collectors and players throughout the world.

His commitment to producing guitars of the very highest quality and playability is greater than ever. He just doesn't pull them apart anymore - well...not too often.

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
