For sale is my Patrick James Eggle Saluda C acoustic guitar. I am told I have too many and at least one has to go!!! This is a beautiful guitar to look at and is a joy to play. The top of the guitar is made from tightly grained solid Cedar. Back and sides are solid Rosewood. The purflings around the edge of the guitars body are also wood (maple I think). The one piece Mahogany neck has an Ebony fretboard, and features a beautiful ’falling leaves’ inlay made from Mother of Pearl and Abalone. The rosette around the sound hole is also Abalone. Nut and saddle are bone. The label inside the guitar is dated 08-10-03, and is hand signed by Mr. Eggle Action and playability are spot on (newly strung with D'Addario EX 12-53 strings) and the frets show very minimal wear. The sound is perfectly balanced, ideal for both fingerstyle and strumming. Overall condition is excellent, and the guitar has been lovingly cared for, but there are a few small dings, and blemishes to the lacquer..the most significant being a very shallow lacquer crack located at the lower bout of the body (please see photo). I had this checked by a well-respected luthier and he said it was only the lacquer and had not gone down to the wood. He set up the guitar and it plays like a dream. The action at the 12th fret is about 2mm. I have fairly small hands and find it easy to play. The guitar comes with a fitted Hiscox case I will package the guitar extremely well for transit and arrange for a courier with full insurance. This costs £40. I have used them before. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
