Country King Keith Urban Back At HSN Sunday

On the heels of his win at last month’s Country Music Awards, and being nominated for two Grammy Awards for “Best Country Solo Performance” and “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” just last week, Keith Urban will be back at HSN this Sunday with his latest guitar collection.

The spouse of Nicole Kidman will be debuting his Deluxe “Player” Guitar line.

“I first started playing the guitar when I was six and I remember feeling an instant connection to it,” Urban said in a canned statement.

“So it was important to me to make learning it as easy as possible, for any age, and to create an affordable, quality instrument so that as many people as possible could have a chance to discover the joy of playing. I believe that’s exactly what we’ve been able to do.”

Urban will have the Today’s Special, his fourth HSN guitar collection, at a price tag of $299.95, $100 off of its regular price at the home shopping network.

Urban’s largest guitar collection to date, the Deluxe “Player” package comes with a 30-DVD lesson series where the handsome singer teaches aspiring musicians the fundamental building blocks needed to learn how to play 30 hit songs: 15 of his top hits and 15 classic rock favorites.

Each disc includes:

* a full lesson designed for you to build as you go to master the song from start to finish
* a one-on-one solo performance practice session to cement the flow of the song
* a play along with the band practice session
* a final session featuring a backup band where you become the star

The “Player” features two versions of the guitar: an all-wood body, handcrafted, Acoustic-Electric guitar with built-in on board 4 band EQ and tuner; or the Solid Body Electric guitar complete with double humbucker style pick-ups, 3 way selector switch and volume and tone controls.

Each 50-piece set is available in four color ways including the Keith Urban signature Brazilian Burst, Rich Black, Crimson and Jade.

    Isn’t every Urban Guitar a Today’s Special. Thats the only time he comes to HSN. They don’t air his item otherwise

    I have played and taught guitar for almost 50 years. I am not impressed with any guitars I’ve seen on television. Most music shops will not work on them as they are considered to be unfixable. You can usually smell the formaldehyde from the finish when you open the box. The frets are usually sharp enough to cut hard salami and the action (distance from the fingerboard to the strings) is so high most are unplayable. You are much better off with a similarly priced guitar from a local music store. Epiphone, Fender, Gretsch and Takamine have great guitars for the same or less money.

    I get the feeling that these guitars only sell because of the timed payment plans on TV Shopping Channels.

    HSN has also started airing a standalone infomercial for this stuff with Urban
