Default Keith Urban - Small Body Acoustic

I know there are not alot of Keith Urban fans around here, but he can really play the guitar. Saw a concert this past weekend and he was playing a small body acoustic that was just unbelievable; however, I was unable to tell what make it was. Anybody happen to know what it might be? Thanks.

Absolutely that guy can play... like crazy!! He is awsome w/ a strat too!
I saw him about a month ago and he was using the little Martin, The one in the second video. He plays a bunch of different guitars but he plays so many leads and solo's while singing no less, he is an awsome entertainer!

It wasn't a Martin for sure - that would have been easy to spot, and it was much smaller than a 000-18. It looked like a palor guitar, but the sound that came out of it was nothing short of amazing. It was the only acoustic he played all night at one of the best concert I have ever seen.

which one did you to? I saw him in Fresno at the Save Mart Center, he played the Martin there a couple times..

He probably has so many different choices, who knows. have you looked on you tube to try & find it?

I saw him at the Philadelphia Wachovia Center this past Saturday and he brought the house down. He played for 2 1/2 hours straight. The name on the headstock was in script and impossible to make out but it did have a Fishman looking barndoor blender on the top. I'll look on youtube. Thanks.

That one isn't a Maton. Looks like a Martin to my eyes.

There was another thread a few months ago regarding Keith Urban, and I was blown away when I saw him on You Tube ... It was some of the fastest changing chords I have ever seen... I just started appreciating some of this music, and he does an excellent job..

I heard the Concert was great at Wachovia !
