Noel Gallagher has hinted at an upcoming signature acoustic guitar from Gibson: the sunburst J-series acoustic he wrote a large amount of Oasis material on, famously adorned with an Adidas sticker.
Speaking to Guitar.com about that particular guitar, Gallagher said: “Gibson is doing a signature model of that one. I sent it there to be photographed, the grain and the whole thing. It’s not even a J-200, you know. It’s a J-150 that I just took off the shelf in London, played it, and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take it.’ I never thought anything of it. But I’ve written some great fucking songs on that guitar.
“They only made them for a couple of years. In fact, just this year I found a blonde one, which I got off Reverb.com. I try not to buy guitars off the internet, because you’ve got to fucking hold them first, and it was a bit expensive, but I thought, ‘Fuck it. I’ll just go for it.’ It arrived and it was amazing. I’m playing it on tour with U2.”
Although there is no official announcement as to the guitar yet, it does seem we could be in for a Noel Gallagher signature from Gibson. We’ll just have to wait and see if the Adidas sticker is included.
