Urchin Deluxe

Been after one in this colour for ages... Smile
Have a black one also but it's just black.

In near mint condition with original case.

Must have alnico V's in the pups. Marked MMK45 but sound way less muddy.

They play real good. Comfy on the strap or sitting.

Plenty of attack in those pups!!

Very nice looking pointy Drool 2 
The bridge seems a little 'timid' on a body like that, just IMO of course.

Ah yes-s-s, a fantastic guitar! Love that finish.
And as you say, surprisingly comfortable to play standing or sitting. You wouldn't think it judging by the shape.

I have always been puzzled by the neck pup in my U60T. It's not a '45, it's OEM, and it's shallower in order to clear the neck tongue. These are the only pix I have handy. Any guess as to what it is?



Sounds good though @ only 7.5K; bridge @ 11.8K

Don't recognise that p'up Barry.
Both my Urchins have 45's all round.

Least you don't have to label the case.

Oh, snap!



I have a knack for finding knackered equipment.  Neutral 
Not only was the U60 in miserable condition when I got it, the case suffered from this bizarre "shadow":

 

After a bit of work I managed to reduce the contrast somewhat,but the bugger is still there:



Why me Lord? Don\'t Know

Hard to say...it really looks like someone put a Spectrum type case on top and over sprayed it. God knows why.

Doesn't seem to be Sun fade because it did improve with some cleaning. If I was more anal about it I'd have another go at it. But bugger it. Good enough.

Re the shallow pickups, I had the same in my Quest Atak 2 and 5. The bridge was a 45, but neck was shallow to allow next to go under.

Thanks Adey. I guess Mats/Aria decided to design things this way. But it would be nice to know what's in there eh? As I say, it does sound good.
