    If I had the choice of that one, or any other one...let me see, ah yes, give me any other one.

    Don't know the guy but the guitar looks great. Although i would wonder if it would hurt to accidentally hit those edges with your hands while playing.

    During his show this past September he played this.

    Could have sworn I spotted "Squier" on the headstock...

    Keith Urban is famous country-pop/rock artist here in the US (but he's from Australia)..he's a great musician, check out some of his live performances on youtube if you got a chance

    We're all arguing about the tonal advantages of nitro vs. poly, and he goes a glues a big hunk of glass to the top of his guitar.

    seems overkill on that video to have 3 electrics and 1 acoustic playing at the same time. maybe it is me.

    I played that guitar prior to it going to him. My guitar tech set up the guitar after the LEDs and circuitry were installed. As I recall, it was a Squier. It was fun playing around with the LED lighting schemes.

    If Liberace had played a Tele - I'll bet that's what it would've looked like.

    =) so true so true.....

    imagine the intonation of different types of metals glued to the top, or maybe even partly apart of the guitar..... im thinking of the reverberation of those Tibetan music bowls..........wow! my imagination is getting way ahead..... maybe when i got 100 000 to spend on a guitar....

    Ugh! Too Paul Stanley-esque for me?

    The neck is very nice though!
