A Fender Telecaster electric guitar previously used by country music star Waylon Jennings has been employed by Keith Urban for one of his new songs.

The track - entitled Georgia Woods - features on Urban's latest album Get Closer and the star described the Telecaster used on it as a "magical-sounding instrument".

"With Georgia Woods, the riffs that open the song were straight from that Telecaster, plugged into a Fender twin amp," the star told the Tennessean.

Urban added that fans should enjoy the "simmering atmosphere" of the song, which helped to inspire the lyrics he came up with for it.

The singer-songwriter uses a wide range of electric and acoustic guitars while in the studio and on tour, including a Eric Clapton signature Fender Stratocaster, a Gibson J-55 and a 1959 Gibson Les Paul Jr.

Urban was born in New Zealand and raised in Australia before deciding to move to Nashville in 1992 to pursue a career in music.
