I have a Patrick Eggle New York that i custom ordered with the factory in 1997. I dealt with Peter Goalby.
It's a mahogany body, figured maple neck with rosewood board. The bridge is a Wilkinson VS100 and it's had graphtec saddles fitted, locking machine heads were fitted at the factory. Pickups are a Seymour Duncan Custom Custom in the bridge (factory fitted) and a Dimarzio Breed neck humbucker. It has a 3-way pickup switch, a volume and a tone, with a coil tap for both pickups on the tone. The finish is candy metallic purple!
I gigged it solid for 5 years and it remained a backup guitar for two years after that... So there are a few scratches, chips and dings. There is a battered Hiscox (Not P.E branded) that i bought with the guitar, the plastic is split, a locking hinge refuses to close/lock and the metal trim is dented in places. Fair play to the case, it's been on many planes and in many vans etc! It has saved the guitar pretty well.
The guitar has sat unused for the last few years, i took it out of the case a few days ago to photograph it.
Hopefully the you can see the photos here
I'm not sure what it's worth, I would hope to get £500-£600. Anything less and i'll stick it in the loft as it's worth that to me.
Lovely guitar! As a bit of an Eggle connoisseur (along with a couple of others on the forum) I would like to offer some of my humble advice. The NY series very rarely hit £500 (if ever - perhaps the Broadway model). You could get lucky in Europe as often buyers in Germany or the baltics will pay a little more.
On the plus, the PE prices do seem to be creeping very slowly north. As yours is quite a rare colour and obviously in good nick, I would pop it in the loft (or play it!) if you can't bear to get less. Realisticly, £400 is probably top dollar on the NY range. Hope this helps make up your mind.
