Patrick James Eggle / Etowah / 2013 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
As one of the UK’s leading luthiers, I was very disappointed to hear that Patrick is no longer making acoustic guitars in his own name, however that just makes his used guitars even more desirable. The Etowah is a 000 size 12 fret guitar, with the classic combination of Sitka Spruce top and Madagascar Rosewood back and sides. This gives the guitar plenty of punch and sustain, with quite a complex overall sound. Predominantly a fingerpicker, because the guitar is so evenly balanced right across the tonal range, it strums surprisingly well, the Rosewood adding great dynamics when you dig in. The looks are classy, particularly the Walnut inner rosette, and the tone is fantastic, in fact it feels like a future classic. At 10 years old the guitar’s in excellent condition, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
