Keith Urban is a well-known guitar aficionado, having shared the stage with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and John Mayer, at Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden earlier this year. Now, he’s making his own guitars available to the public with his new guitar collection.
“I’ve watched some of the greatest guitarists in the world perform and I’ve seen people just learning how to play,” he said on his website. “The looks on their faces are almost always the same and the connection with the instrument is genuine.”
The “We Were Us” singer has joined forces with HSN to offer an affordable line of guitars to fans and aspiring musicians. The URBAN Guitar Collection includes two one-hour instructional DVDs and his first custom created, limited-edition acoustic and electric guitar line. The line will be for sale exclusively on HSN starting November 3.
The URBAN Collection features two versions of the “Phoenix Edition” guitar – electric and acoustic/electric – and will be available in multiple colors. Part of a 21-piece set, the collection includes a custom amplifier, coated guitar strings, embroidered guitar strap, guitar picks and more. A portion of the proceeds of Urban’s collection will go to Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and The Grammy Foundation.
