Note for returning members: you should be able to login as before using the same credentials and, even though the forum has changed a lot visually, operationally it remains very similar. The inclusion of this front-end portal means that the forum itself is slightly less cluttered, with a bit more readability. On the above menu, Home brings you now to this screen; Forum takes you to the main content.

"The Legendary Years (90s) - An Independent & Unofficial Forum"

...is a resource celebrating some of the finest examples of British Guitar Luthiery bearing the name "Patrick Eggle" specifically those guitars made between 1991 and 2000 under the various ownerships that began with luthier Patrick Eggle and entrepreneur Andrew Selby forming a new British company, Patrick Eggle Guitars, to make superlative quality electric guitars and ended with the sale/closure of the company in 2000, when PEG owner Dave Quill sold his Musical Exchanges business to Sound Control.

This forum is "independent and unofficial" in the context that it has no affiliation to the guitars made by the current owners of the company "Patrick Eggle Limited" (Gordon Tilley & family) if you own a "PatrickEggle" made after 2001 and have a warranty issue or question you should contact them directly. Similarly, this forum has no direct connection with the company "Patrick James Eggle Guitars Limited" (Patrick himself), but you will find occasional topics regarding both ...

With that disclaimer out of the way, here's a synopsis of this forum's history:

  • The Official PEG Forum (run by the Tilley family) began in around 2002 and gained a membership of ~250 during its existence, but due to a variety of reasons it was closed on Monday 25th July 2005 fortunately its demise was anticipated by its forum moderator (this website's owner), who had contacted most of the active members and set up a mailing list to discuss a plan to continue ...
  • This independent and unofficial PEG Forum began 11th August 2005 after an interim experiment (on a different domain), following a period of email discussions. Clearly, with no data being available from the official forum database, only cached pages from Google, it was necessary to start from scratch! Fortunately this site's owner has his own web servers and the skills/knowledge to develop web content quickly!
  • "The Legendary Years (90s)" has been running successfully ever since and has gained a membership of ~2000 (July 2012), with a significant core of regulars, many of whom are long-term owners of multiple examples of the guitars that are celebrated here.

If you're disappointed that you have virtually no access to the interesting areas of this forum, i.e. the topics, please consider that registration is a minor inconvenience and you will benefit greatly from taking that small step.

What are you missing by not registering? Not only is there a comprehensive collection of reference information (brochures, catalogs, news and magazine articles) relating directly to Patrick Eggle Guitars, there are message boards for General Discussion (music-related and non-music), as well as boards for active auctions (on eBay etc), private sales/swap/wanted ads and a Calendar for date-related events of interest to musicians.

Of course there are also boards covering just about every model or variation made during "The Legendary Years (90s)" including Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Vienna, Boston, Stratford, Milan and Tony Iommi Signature models.

There's opportunities to ask or answer questions to/from other enthusiasts; post details of your own PEG instruments including pictures or message attachments; communicate publicly or privately with other members; very little in the way of posting restrictions regarding content as long as you abide by the rules of common decency and courtesy.

Please register ...

I'm glad you managed to find us here!

If you were a member of the offiicial Patrick Eggle Guitars Forum before it closed down on 25th July 2005, you will be familiar with some of the members here but not the new look and feel of this particular forum software I'm confident you will find it a great improvement, not only ergonomically, but there's much more freedom about what may be discussed. Apart from the usual rules that you read and agreed to abide by when you registered, there's no restrictions!

If you're new here, I trust you'll find this a useful resource of information regarding all Eggles made in the 90s one thing that's important to impart from the outset:

All manufacturing records that were meticulously maintained and held by the various owners of Patrick Eggle Guitars during the 90s were destroyed during the period of ownership by Musical Exchanges, after the move from the original factory at Bodmin Road, Coventry to Water Street in Central Birmingham, sometime around 97/98. It matters not whether their destruction was deliberate or not, but the physical T-card system was dumped in a skip and in a separate incident, the computer-held database was trashed during a software upgrade!

So, we have no written records to refer to other than a few scraps instead we have a collection of enthusiasts who have been building a jigsaw puzzle through collaboration and discussion, members of a forum that no longer exists because the plug was pulled without warning on 25th July! Yet again there's been a loss of considerable information because all of the data and discussion by the members of the official forum has been withdrawn from the public domain.

We hope you will join in with this new project to rebuild a very useful resource ...
