Noel Gallagher has partnered with the famed guitar manufacturer Gibson to launch the ‘Noel Gallagher J-150’ acoustic guitar.
The instrument has been Gallagher’s go-to acoustic guitar of choice for over 20 years, with the guitarist first seen playing it in the promo video for the Oasis song ‘Little By Little’.
Gibson has now launched a limited-to-200 run of Gallagher’s favoured Gibson J-150, which features an AA maple back and sides and a Sitka spruce top.
Each guitar comes with a custom case, signed label and reproduced hand-written lyric sheet, as well as an authorised Adidas Trefoil Decal.
“When Gibson brought the prototype down and I saw it there on the floor, I was like, ‘It looks the bollocks, man’. But then it sounded exactly like mine,” Gallagher said in a statement. “I was blown away!”
Lee Bartram, EU Head of Marketing at Gibson Brands, added: “Noel Gallagher’s music not only defined a generation, but it also became the foundation to a way of life for many around the world.
“Truly great music has the capability to transport you to a moment in your life… a snapshot in time, one of life’s reference points. Noel’s music does that for millions who listen to his songs and travel to somewhere else, somewhere they believe they can be a rock n’ roll star… even if it’s for that briefest of moments.
“It’s been an honour to work with such an iconic artist and bringing this project to life is a small token of thanks for that music… and the belief that comes with it.”
