Patrick James Eggle is very much the modern day hero of British guitar design. In addition to being the man behind Faith acoustics and the recently revived Shergold brand, Eggle is best known for crafting boutique guitars of the very highest order.
The 96 is one of his very best, with stunning aesthetics, flawless playability and unrivalled tonal quality, it's a marker for other guitar manufacturers to learn from.
The super light Swamp Ash body features Eggle's signature, micro thin, grained, open pore finish. Soft to the touch and offering superior resonance, it allows the wood to breathe which delivers better definition and clarity and doesn't stifle the tonal quality of the body. The completely unique hand patinated brass pickguard has a sweet storm effect and really adds to the premium look of the guitar.
This 96 features a Roasted Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard, with a 25.5" scale length it is familiar, well balanced and supremely comfortable. With a 12" radius and Soft V shape profile it responds perfectly when plying slick lead lines or chunky chords.
With a H/S/H pickup configuration you get substantial tonal options. Covering all your tonal bases with ease, it's a monster guitar, perfect for any playing situation.
This guitar is used but in really nice condition. There are some very light signs of use across the back and sides but nothing out of the ordinary for a used guitar.
