Patrick James Eggle - Faith Guitars

Patrick James Eggle, a world-renowned Luthier, has been making guitars since he was 15 years old. During his distinguished career, Patrick has been privileged to build both electric and acoustic guitars for some of the biggest names in the business, including Brian May, Tony Iommi, Midge Ure, Oliver Lieber, Brian Ray and Tony Remy.


"Guitar design hasn't changed much in the past century, but one thing that has, is the way that the design is implemented. My goal has always been to take the classic, established design and redefine what can be expected from it. The true art of guitar-making is selecting the very best tone-woods and ensuring they are handled correctly".


"Throughout the 50 or so hours I spend crafting a PJE or Faith guitar, I am acutely aware that I am creating not only the personality of the instrument, but also its tone and volume. All from pieces of wood! If the tone-woods are not handled correctly - for example, if the grain is not properly orientated, of if the spacing of the bracing is not perfect - nothing can be done to allow that guitar to speak with the voice it was intended".

"My ultimate aim is to create a perfect marriage between material, structure and inspiration. This is how I approach everything I design or build".
