Country superstar announces limited run of signature “Phoenix Edition” acoustic and electric guitars
Keith Urban has unveiled “The Urban Collection,” a new signature line of guitars. The collection, which will be available exclusively through the Home Shopping Network, will include electric and electro-acoustic models.
The guitars will be available in three finishes – Brazilian Burst, Rich Black, and Vintage Natural Ivory.
“I’ve watched some of the greatest guitarists in the world perform and I’ve seen people just learning how to play,” said Urban in a statement. “The looks on their faces are almost always the same and the connection with the instrument is genuine.”
The guitars are apparently part of a 21-piece set that also includes a custom amplifier, strings, strap, picks, and two hours of instructional DVDs.
The country star, who is married to actress Nicole Kidman, will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the guitars to a pair of music-minded charities – The Grammy Museum and Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
