Add guitar salesman to Keith Urban's resume... Keith Urban has set a new shopping channel record record with guitar sales on the Home Shopping Network!
The chart-topping country singer and "American Idol" judge appeared on HSN (Home Shopping Network) this week to promote his new line of guitars. The instruments are exclusive to the network and Urban sold more than 22,000 of his limited edition "Light The Fuse" and "Phoenix" URBAN guitar packages in eight hours.
That number bests Urban's previous record of 20,000 sold, which he set last November when he first introduced his Phoenix acoustic guitar, a package that sold for $199.95.
The "Light The Fuse" Collection, named after Urban's recent album "Fuse," features two versions of the "Light The Fuse" guitar, an all-wood electric or acoustic-electric that is available in five colors.
In addition, the package includes a 15-watt amplifier, an extra set of strings, a carrying case, signature guitar picks, and a double-lesson DVD with one-on-one lessons from Urban.
The guitar/amplifier combos originally sold for $289.95 and are now priced at $319.95 at www.HSN.com. Urban's 16-piece Phoenix acoustic package is currently listed on the site at $299.95.
Similarly priced guitar packages, without the Urban-branded merchandise, are available in music stores.
