Anyone know what pots & caps are stock in the Vienna pro's?
I swapped out the KAs for a set of SD Wholelotta humbuckers and still not 100% happy with the tone, thinking that swapping out for different pots & caps may get me closer...

Patrick Eggle Berlin Pro Elite electric guitar
I have had this beautiful guitar for 22 years since choosing it from the factory with the owner, but a change in musical direction means it is time to move on.
The slightly smaller than PRS body makes it a compact size and easy weight, but the mahogany body with highly flamed maple top give it a fine sound. It is loaded with Seymour Duncan pickups (Alnico II and a Custom Custom) which can be toggled to coil split to both inner or outer coils.
The mahogany neck is topped with an Ebony fretboard inlaid with abalone dots.The Sperzel locking tuners keep things in tune for a very long time.
The bridge is a non locking Wilkinson VS100N vibrato unit, (which I found easier to use than the original V100CV locking tailpiece.) I shall include the original in the case if you wish to switch it back.
The guitar is in very good condition, not having been gigged,only a few tiny marks to the back. There is, as photographed, a small lacquer lift on the headstock, which seems to have happened to a few of this vintage.
Thanks for looking, and I hope this is something you would enjoy owning as I have.

Sounds great, Matt, although, as you know, from my perspective it looks very green!

Attracted 5 bidders selling for £557. I was one of the 5 so will be interested to hear what the new owner thinks if they're a member here.
In my continuing quest to furnish the forum with a comprehensive list of PEGs, here's my most recent purchase...
A very nice Berlin Pro HT 24HH, dating from 1997. I bought it (via eBay) from the original owner who purchased it new from Musical Exchanges back in '97.
Apart from being a great guitar, I was rather taken with the colour which is a nice match for my Berlin Vintage Classic - but the new acquisition offering 24 frets and a less classic set of electronics. This one features the 3 way rotary switch providing the effective 'twintone' voicing, along with a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups (APH1 in the neck and Custom Custom in the bridge). All in all this is a more versatile and modern guitar than the BVC - the range of tones from the standard humbucking, twintone and split coil settings is extremely versatile, and all very usable.
As always, playability is excellent, and inspite of the seller describing the neck as baseball bat like, it feels spot on to me and not too chunky at all.
The condition is very good, and it's clearly been well looked after - there are a few light marks in the lacquer around the edges and a slight scuff on the lower rear edge where the mahogany is showing through the black finish, plus some small damage to the edge of the fretboard but nothing that affects play or is visually noticeable, The guitar came with the little Eggle pouch (housing the allen key), some leaflets detailing the spec and pickup switching and the Hiscox case (which strangely has one of the catches locked in the open position).
Anyway, have look at the pictures in my gallery - I'll keep you posted of any developments (wouldn't mind swapping the tuners for locking Sperzals)...

I put it on Gumtree on Sunday morning, and had interest within a couple of hours.
Sad to let her go, but lack of space and lack of playing opportunity.
Someone is getting a nargain, but then... we're biased!
That was quick, but then it looked like a nice example for fair price.
