Keith Urban will donate the proceeds of a customised Fender guitar to a cancer charity at the end of his Get Closer tour.

The country music star is showing his support for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity by playing with the bespoke black Fender guitar throughout his shows.

It also has on its body a pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

Urban, who is married to the Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman, specially requested for the electric guitar to be produced in time for October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Formed in 1982, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure is a global leader in the fight against breast cancer.

Since it began it has raised $1.9 billion (approximately $1.2 billion) of funding.

It has been a busy month for Urban, who has also been spending time with perfume makers, helping develop his signature aroma. The men's fragrance will be called Phoenix.
