Eggles / Vienna Pro, 1994, serial no. VP 5-94 258 (possibly)

BIN Price: £825

Description:

Patrick Eggle Vienna Pro - 1994 - Made in Coventry
incl. Hiscox Case

DETAILS:
Here's a beautiful guitar from the heyday of Patrick Eggle Guitars.

This model is the Vienna Pro, which is the top model in the Vienna range. For those of you who are familiar with the more widely known Berlin model, the Vienna is the bigger sibling and comparable in size to a PRS CU model. This particular example dates back to May 1994 and is a superb guitar in every way.

The main features are:
Body: Mahogany back and thick carved maple top
Neck: Mahogany set neck with ebony fretboard and 24 frets
Hardware: Sperzel Locking Tuners, Wilkinson PE100 vibrato bridge
Pickups: Seymour Duncan (Pearly Gates / Custom Custom) pickups
Electronics: Volume, Tone and 5 way blade selector offering split coil options in positions 2 and 4
I've own many Eggles over the years, including most variants of most models and this is my 3rd and best Vienna.

Hopefully as you'll see from the pictures, it's a stunning guitar, but furthermore it plays really well - it feels very comfortable with a gorgeous neck and excellent set up, and equally importantly it just sounds great. Some Viennas came with Kent Armstrong pickups, but the Seymour Duncans in this model really give the tone that little bit more. The split coil settings are also really good giving a viable option for when you need to be in single coil territory. All in all it covers a very wide range of sounds, from rich cleans to hollowed out quacky tones, to mid gained bluesy sounds to straight ahead rock and metal.

It's a guitar that I will be very sad to part with.

CONDITION:
This guitar is 24 years old and has been used. But, it remains in exceptionally good condition. Here's a summary of the noteworthy aspects of its condition:
There is a little cloudiness int he lacquer around the headstock (I believe a quirk of the finishing process rather than damage)
The transparent plastic volume knob appears to have cracked inside (not the pots, just the knob)
There are some very tiny marks here and there
The black truss rod cover is damaged and although included, the guitar comes with a wooden one fitted
Overall it's a stunning guitar that has been very well looked after. It's in perfect working order and plays very well.

It comes with the Patrick Eggle branded Hiscox case and hang tag.

DiMarzio DP184 in the neck position...that's an interesting choice. That pickup sounds pretty midrangy in the bridge position of my telestyle guitar, which makes me wonder how that one will do in a neck position!

The electrics were even worse than I'd feared - one of the pickups was dead and the other two pickups only had one coil working
The five way rotary switch had 7 positions so had obviously been tampered with -
and the volume pot had a broken shaft -
The guitar sounded dreadful - which given my hankering after an LA for many many years was a huge disappointment

Thanks to advice and some wiring diagrams from Peter at Guitar Technical Services I've been able to get the LA going again
Sounding nice in some positions - thin and nasally in others -

DiMarzio "Chopper™" DP184 in the Neck
Kramer Dual Rail in the middle position
Kent Armstrong Hot Rails in the Bridge Pos

replaced the 5 way rotary switch and volume pot -
Used a chicken head knob for the rotary switch -
Looks and sounds rather nice now

Can't upload images as they are too large - will try later

They are..especially that one with the embedded logo. Reminds me of old foot powered sewing machines. I was making a bridge for a 70s cort flying v yesterday..from 3mm brass plate. Slow job to cut metal manually I expect, but those have given me a few ideas for guitar parts and amplifier grilles..thanks wolfen...

Yes!!!

Gibsongaz - looking forward to hearing about the Macon SC - just a little bit jealous.  :mrgreen:

Yes - I tried to not want it. Arrives Friday all being well - have't been this excited about new gear since the yellow Berlin Deluxe I had. Imagine it'd be difficult to sell over here anyway, so I have to keep it for the foreseeable!  :lol:

That Grainger looks pretty cool - they're a new one to me so will check out their website.
