Attention Aria Urchin fans Check out this one it's awesome

Post by mortarman120gang11c on Tue Jan 31, 2012 6:27 pm

Found this rare bird on the bay today. It is the top of the line Urchin model by Aria Pro. This baby has all the bells and whistles and I bet it sounds great. If you like the active goodies you will love all of the combinations this baby can put out. Nice clean with only the usual point dings etc and is all original including the case. This baby will get the egas going for certain. Good Luck to all.
Very Happy Very Happy

Never saw an Urchin like that - It screams BC Rich Bich influence with all the switching options.

BTW if anyone has a USA BICH 6 string, I am looking for one down the road a bit

Bloody hell...far too many controls for this boy!!

Be quite a coup to get it, though, I reckon....

I would expect to see this one go high as it is the only one I have ever seen up for auction or sale and they are indeed rare birds.

I hear ya, i love the Urchins but this baby is a little overboard. 6 mini swtiches? Woooooah, the FX is enough for me. I do love the neck thru and the inlays are wicked cool. bounce

It's got more controls than a Drones joystick.

Always reminds me of these.


Good luck Steve

Pity they didn't do them in a Urchin Deluxe finish, a bit more class. Looks a bit planky.

Yup. Definitely more of a "swoosh" on the lower horn.

I'm glad to see it going for that much, has to be super rare. And super cool. It deserves a good home that'll preserve it.

All those switches make it look more impressive and important to people. Laughing

Urchin 100

Post by sixpoundshank on Sun Apr 01, 2012 1:56 pm

I have the same guitar. Mine has all the original knobs however (I know it sounds weird, but I know to a collector, that's important)

I am selling it if anyone wants to make an offer... I will be putting it on ebay (Probably later today) I will throw a link here later on when I get home. Getting rid of this guitar is going to BREAK MY HEART. I bought it when I was 17. I'm 38 now. I saved for MONTHS to buy this baby. I have been offered $1500 locally for it. I figured I would throw it up on ebay & I should get AT LEAST what that last one sold for...preferably a bit more.

Thanks Guys!

Ted

Thats a very nice one you have there and I wish you much luck on the ebay route. These are not seen to often and it may bring a good price. I think the record results on the last one were the results of a serious all out bidding war and may not be duplicated again but you never know with ebay. Good luck with the auction and if I were you I would keep her for certain as you have a history with her. You will always regret selling her later down the road but to each his own. Good Luck
