FOR SALE is my Patrick J. Eggle Skyland in Myrtle wood and Brazilian Rosewood. This acoustic guitar was purchased by myself directly from Patrick in 2012. Patrick has ceased making acoustic guitars, and now only makes electric guitars. This Guitar not only looks beautiful, but also sounds really awesome as well, whether strumming or fingerpicking. I have played this guitar maybe 2 or 3 times since purchase, it has spent its whole life with me in its luxury case, except for periodical inspections by myself. The plain fact is, it is just not being played so I am now putting it up for sale, in the hope that somebody else will appreciate this beautifully made instrument and maybe even play it as it should be played, and enjoy it 100%. The spec is as follows:



Soundboard: Sitka Spruce



Back: 3 piece figured Myrtlewood / Brazilian Rosewood wedge/ Figured   Myrtle wood, combination back. (Similar to a Martin D35)



Sides: Myrtle wood 



Rosette: Custom handmade Spalted maple and birch blocks

Headstock: Symmetrical (Similar to a Lowden)

Also included : Two sets of PJE hand turned wood bridge pins : one set is Cocobolo, the other is Bloodwood. They have never been fitted to the Guitar.



Initially I would be inclined to ask for Collection only, as this guitar is very, very special. I would prefer you to try it and see if you like it.*** ONLY SERIOUSLY INTERESTED PEOPLE NEED CONTACT ME. PLEASE NO TIMEWASTERS, OR JAMMERS ***. Patrick went outside the box when he made this Guitar, it is so unique, and a real testament to his exemplary skills as a noted luthier. I want it to be appreciated and well looked after, by the right person who buys it. I feel privileged just to own it, never mind play it. If you do want me to send it to you, you must be prepared to accept the cost of postage which will only be by an insured courier. Please email me so I can arrange something. Thanks for looking at this stunning guitar, I am very proud I bought it. 
