About the Builder:
In order to serve a wider market Patrick Eggle Guitars introduced what might undeservedly be described as a budget model, the New York — better described as a fit-for-purpose workhorse! Featuring bolt-on neck construction (with one or two exceptions), a stylish compact body and a completely different sonic style, these quickly found favour with gigging guitarists. The range included the following models: the New York Standard (NY Standard), New York Plus (NY Plus), New York Pro (NY Pro), New York DLX (with set-neck), New York Anniversary (NY Anniversary),New York Broadway (semi-acoustic), New York Junior (NY Junior), New York Liberty (NY Liberty) and New York Bass 4(yes, a subsonic version)! It should be noted that the build quality of this range was not sub-standard — even the cheapest NY Junior was superbly crafted to very high standards!
