Keith Urban Gave Me His Guitar!

Perezcious reader Marissa got a very special gift from Keith Urban at his concert last night.

This is what she has to tell us about the experience:

“Just wanted to send my Valentine’s wishes and to share a funny story with you. Last night my friend Todd took me to the Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban concert at MSG in NYC. I was sporting a cowgirl shirt from my friend, Meg (a big Perez fan). It was my first country concert and will now surely NOT be my last. Carrie was stunning and amazing, but when Keith came out…damn. Quite the dreamboat )

While playing his song “You look good in my shirt” Keith came into the crowd and into my row. I was so excited!!! And then as I was taking pictures he whipped off his guitar, signed it and handed it to me!

I almost died.”

I had a Rick 330 that I got rid of a couple of years ago . . . loved that guitar. I also loved my ’69 SG and my McIlroy acoustic which I sold as well. Now I just have my old Les Paul and a Yamaha acoustic, both which suit me just fine. The guitar is truly only as good as the hands it is in.

I’m sure the three chords KU knows sound just as good on a Cort as they do on a SRV original strat, and I doubt he’s even plugged in. I was being factitious. Country Western is to Music as WWE is to organized sports.

I used to have an Epiphone and it was decent. I spent a lot of time setting it up and doing the frets. Still, playing my friends’ Flying V, Destroyers and Les Paul was like night and day.

Now that I could afford a Gibson if I wanted one, I kind of agree with emarch and play an Ibanez. The RG reissue is pretty cool – the single coils give it nice strat sound for a shredder, and it suits my style of play better than a Les Paul would. The shorter string scale on the LP is pretty sweet sometimes…I am thinking of getting an Ibanez Mikro for that reason.

Les Pauls are fun, but I’ll stick with my Rickenbacker till the day they pry it from my cold, dead hands. Although I did play a G&L tele a couple of weeks back that was incredible.

Epiphones are ok, but I’ll still take my old Gibson Les Paul Standard over just about anything. Urban may be contractually obliged to give away an Epiphone, btw.

…then you don’t know a heck of a lot about guitars. Epiphone cranks out several models that are actually comparable (some say better) than Gibsons. And a lot of players actually prefer Epiphones’ Les Paul Studios to Gibson’s. That being said, I think Bin’s probably right – if he’s handing them out, better to hand off a $400 Epiphone than a $2500 Gibson.

Bottom line: if you can play, you can make just about anything sound good.
