... but a Matt none the less, and the faint of heart should turn away now.... :lol: £40 bought me this on the Pommie eBay, complete but for the slight imperfection in the body...

I have that exact model Urchin and it is indeed made by Uncle Matt and plays like a dream. Great to see one being saved from the guitar boneyard. Will be awaiting the finished results. If you need any photos or other reference items let me know. Here are a few shots of my Urchin. Sorry for the bad links try these.

Corsair the link to Urchin has been fixed. Sorry for the error as I do not use photobucket much.

But the real question is: Which came first, the Urchin or the Futura?
