Have you ever wanted to wrap your hands around Keith Urban’s guitar? Now you can. The URBAN Guitar Collection was announced on his website on Oct. 7, 2013. The collection will include Urban’s first custom created, limited edition acoustic and electric guitar line plus two instructional one hour long DVD’s to get you up and running.
Urban hopes to inspire guitar players with his new guitar collection and will be donating a portion of the proceeds to Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and The Grammy Foundation. Urban discussed his love for playing the guitar by saying “I developed a passion for the guitar when I was six and over the years it’s only grown stronger. I feel so blessed that in this life, I get to be a guitar player.”
Urban said “I’ve watched some of the greatest guitarists in the world perform and I’ve seen people just learning how to play,” adding “The looks on their faces are almost always the same and the connection with the instrument is genuine.” The URBAN Guitar Collection will be available for sale exclusively on HSN, HSN.com and HSN Mobile beginning November 3, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. EST.
Urban’s collection will include two versions of the “Phoenix Edition” guitar electric and acoustic/electric guitar which will be available in Brazilian Burst, Emerald Brazilian Burst, Rich Black and Vintage Natural Ivory for you to pick from. The guitar will be a part of a 21-piece set that includes a custom amplifier, coated guitar strings, embroidered guitar strap and guitar picks.
Joy Mangano, President of Ingenious Designs, a subsidiary of HSN said “We are thrilled to welcome Keith Urban to HSN,” adding “Great stories and great storytelling are at the heart of everything we do and I can’t think of a better guitarist and storyteller than Keith. His guitar playing skills are legendary and the passion he has for music will surely inspire our viewers to pick up a guitar and play when Keith makes his debut in November.”
