Keith Urban is well known for his love of Fender and Gibson guitars as you can see in the Premier Guitar Rig Rundown (which also includes an old Pensa-Suhr) but most of his guitars are either vintage or custom shop guitars which are very expensive. Keith wants kids learning guitar to be able to play quality instruments without the custom shop price tag so he is teaming up with leading interactive lifestyle retailer HSN to offer an affordable line of guitars called the URBAN™ Guitar Collection.
“The limited-edition acoustic and electric guitar line, will become available for sale exclusively on HSN, HSN.com and via HSN Mobile on Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 at 12:01 A.M (EST). A portion of the proceeds from the URBAN™ Guitar Collection, as well as guitar packages, will go to Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and The Grammy Foundation.”
The URBAN Collection features two versions of the “Phoenix Edition” guitar – electric and acoustic/electric – and will be available in Brazilian Burst, Emerald Brazilian Burst, Rich Black and Vintage Natural Ivory. It is part of a 21-piece set that includes a custom amplifier, coated guitar strings, embroidered guitar strap, guitar picks and more. You can’t really see from the photo above but the headstock name reads URBAN.
