Eggles / Re: Berlin Stage, 1994, serial no. 6722

Not original, but modded with taste.

Totally agree,  but worth mentioning as the seller had stated that  Everything is original, i.e. as it was when new.

Probably no need to state this, although it may not be obvious to all that this guitar has undergone various mods: the chrome knobs and pickup surrounds are not original, and assuming the pickups are 'Duncan Designed' as stated, they're also not original - PEG have never used Duncan Designed pickups, although Seymour Duncan pickups have been used on various models throughout the years...

Looking at the photos, I have to admit that I understand the mods. To me, the chrome applications match well with the understated look of the wooden substance. Metal pickup frames were not foreign to some other original PEG specs, such as the BVC and the NY Broadway.

Eggles / Berlin Stage, 1994, serial no. 6722
« Last post by RevMatt on September 11, 2018, 20:03:28 »
Item no. 123359229328
Seller: dirkdashing
Listing ends: 18 Sep, 2018 17:12:26
Start price: £295

Description:
Patrick Eggle Berlin Stage electric guitar.  Made in England.  Solid wood body (Brazilian Mahogany I think), rosewood neck and chrome hardware:  Sperzel locking tuners, Duncan designed pickups, volume/tone knobs (with pull-up mid-phase), tremelo (with push-in/pull-out arm), three way toggle switch.  Everything is original, i.e. as it was when new.  Comes with original green Hiscox 'Liteflite' hard case (also made in England). In very good overall condition however there are  there are some minor scuffs and dings which I've captured in the photos.  The back has clear plastic layer to protect it from buckle/button damage.

I'm the second owner of this guitar which, according to the previous owner, was purchased around 1994; the phone number for Hiscox on the case doesn't have '1' after the first '0' and so would indicate this approximate age.  The serial number on the back of the headstock shows '6722' (shown in photo) for those who may be able to reference this.  I've owned this since 2001 and used it for rehearsals and gigs with a couple of bands between 2002 and 2006; since then it has had very occasional use at home.  No issues with either the playability (intonation, fret buzz, tuning etc...) or the electrics.

Please contact me if you have any questions.  Delivery quoted is for the UK mainland only - please contact me if you live elsewhere. 

IMPORTANT: I have quoted an approximate price for the delivery as the amount the guitar sells for will change the final amount due to the variable rate of compensation cover (£25-£35).  Please do not pay instantly with Paypal via eBay link if you win - I will need to calculate final sum and send you an invoice.  I'm happy for you to arrange your own courier service if you'd prefer.

Alternatively you can collect from me (Deal, Kent) or meet up in the Easy Kent area.  Cash on collection/meeting.

Standard / Re: New York bridge - metric or imperial??
« Last post by Ziltoid on September 11, 2018, 17:45:17 »
The bidges used on Berlin Standard/Plus Berlins and original New Yorks are all metric, Gotoh.
This is the case from 92 through 94 for sure after that I don't know.
Lateron we saw wilkinson type bridges on Eggles not sure about those.

I replaced the bridge on an HT Berlin once (not sure if it's the same as the NY) - it came with a bridge with just the compensated G/B saddles and I wanted the fully adjustable sort. I went for the Gotoh GE103B which was a direct replacement - I didn't even need to replace the original posts.

It's detailed in this thread - you can see the original bridge in the first post and the replacement bridge further down the thread.

With the Gotoh fitting that well, wouldn´t that suggest that you had metric sized hardware in the 1st instance? Considering where Trev is/was sourcing parts made to his design criterias, I wouldn´t be too surprised about metric instead of imperial hardware, wouldn´t I?

Good idea. I’d thought about taking some more wood out and re positioning it, I do use the tone, but i couldn’t bring myself to set about the NY with a chisel!

Bit late now tall bearded one but I had the same issue with the volume knob on my NY.
I ditched the tone control (don't use it anyway) and move the volume pot to the tone pot position.
Problem solved. Not elegant as I have a hole in the scratchplate but effective. I suppose if I was overly fussed I could do some kind of fill job. mmmm, that's an idea.

Cheers RevMatt,
That looks like a better choice. Don't really think the tonepro is worth the extra and I'm nota big Thomann fan anyway.
At £22 with easy returns from Amazon, i'll give that a punt.

...Probably best to just be patient and check when I get home tonight and order tomorrow.
Yes, considering the cost of said item (and Thomann's shipping charge added) it would be wise to measure! If the present one has never been 'right' do you still have the original to be able to measure that as well? Hopefully you have vernier calipers and/or a micrometer?

Sorry, I have only previously owned one NY Standard and didn't think to measure it with any accuracy ...
