Keith Urban speaks about love of Fender guitars
Country singer Keith Urban has spoken about his deep affinity for Fender electric guitars.
He told the magazine that the electric guitar - which he purchased back in 1989 - has been by his side at many important occasions.
"That guitar has been beside me at every important event in my career," he stated in comments reported by the official Fender blog.
"I later found out that Leo Fender's first name was also Clarence, so the name seemed even more appropriate."
Urban said he is lucky to own another Fender Telecaster previously used by Waylon Jennings that was purchased for him by wife Nicole Kidman.
The country star also has his own custom-made Fender Stratocaster, which he was pictured on the cover of the magazine with.
Urban is set to go on tour in Australia next year, with shows lined up in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane during April 2011.
He will then embark on an extensive tour of North America between June and October.
