Funnily enough, I did a quick search and found Patrick Eggle has a website and here's my guitar on there;

Thanks, had to wait 6 weeks for them to build it, Patric Eggle over PRS anyday!!!!

I've got a Patrick Eggle that looks very similar to that, it's a "Berlin Plus".

It's in a rather fetching red/pink finish though, hence no pictures. hehe
Are you two members of the legendary years PEG forum?
No, not heard of it - got a link?

Been meaning to put mine up for sale for a while but it's probably only of much value to PE collectors or enthusiasts as it's about 15 years old. Might be able to canvas some opinion on there.

Great site and a good section to sell in too.

From the top and L to R:

A Samick from the '80's; don't know too much about it, but it has a typical 'Superstrat' tone. Best thing about it is that it refuses to go out of tune. Locking trem and nut, slack it off until the strings stick to the pickups, and it returns to pitch perfect every time.

Epi G400; because I wanted one. Saving up for a satchel and cap.

Epi Goldtop; ditto (not the satchel and cap bit.)

Fender Strat; Kahler trem, very worn neck, body battered, had a hard life, but will never sell. Thank-you eBay.

Another Samick, this time a 335 copy. Bought because I wanted to try a semi (acoustic; stop sniggering at the back).

70's Ibanez Roadstar bass. Ibanez were almost unknown in this country (at least in Norfolk, anyway) when I bought this in '78. Does a good Precision impression. Matured nicely now, but never played. Shame. Again, I'll never sell it.

Burns Red Special. Incredibly versatile, but I guess it suffers from the stigma of being associated with Brian May. Switching can get confusing, but if it was any different, it wouldn't be a Red Special. On of the nicest necks I've ever played. Only need a hair perm and clogs now.

Maison; don't know much about these. Bought with a tax rebate in the '80's. Push/pull tone pot, which I didn't discover for 4 years! Not much on t'internet; I think it was built in the same factory as Ibanez. Never seen another.

Another Epi. Bit of a custom one, this. Bought off eBay. Incredible ballsy sound. More LP than an LP. Weighs about half-a-ton though. Fantastic MoP finish, and looks great under lights.

Ibanez RG550. Another 80's special. Definitely must get a perm.

Fender Tele; because no home should be without one.


I've also got the first guitar I ever bought, back in '71, when I was but a small boy. God knows what it is. It's in the attic, so if anyone here has any knowledge on 60's Japanese/Italian guitars, let me know and I'll get it down and post a picture. Four pickups, covered in chrome plates, rocker switches and roller volumes, it's got the lot, including a snapped neck.

my newest instrument,



recieved this Westfield bass as a gift for my 21st yesterday!
think its possibly a rep of a Warwick or similar bass perhaps, but its a solid, playable wee thing and it was taken at a good price too!
going to master this (been a while since i last had or played a bass!) learn a few different hand techniques maybe and then see about moving onto a Fender perhaps...

Some lovely guitars in this thread!

These are my main 2 guitars. The acoustic is a Taylor 414-L7 and plays beautifully. It has no electronics, although I am thinking of adding a pickup at some point. Currently looking at a Fishman Infinity as it is invisible from the outside. The electric is a CR8 Les Paul. The neck is like a baseball bat but it sounds fantastic, particularly through the Marshall amp (see the amp thread for a picture of that).

My current squeeze (library pic, but same colour and spec sans trem):



Lovely thing. Ideal 'board radius for my fingers, not too heavy, nicely weighted, and clear definition between pickups. Currently being played through a Korg AX1000G and a really ratty 50W Kay solid state job.

Previous convictions include an Ibanez JS Series; but not the usual fare. It had MOP effect binding all round, a fretboard without markers, a mid-grey bookmatched maple top, and a trem (not floating). It had 2 single coils and 1 humbucker in the bridge position. I sold it as I wasn't playing it enough, but it was - without question - the best guitar I've owned. I've tried searching images of it to find out exactly what model it was, but with no success.

Any help appreciated, as I'd like to own another one.

I've sold all my guitars and my Marshall half stack. Even punted my last semi-scoustic Epiphone last week i was keeping for rainy days.

This thread has just spurned me on to go buy a new semi.

Will start a new thread for that methinks.

Nice collection here guys, some seriously impressive wood.

My Mexican Strat (2001 I believe)...It may not be the best but it's fine for me, still fancy a honeyburst LP though (Tokai)
