Noel Gallagher's affiliation with ES-style guitars stretches back to the beginning of Oasis, the peak of which was in 1997 when he purchased a 1960 Gibson ES-355. Deemed at the time "too nice" to play, this was initially intended to remain a collector's piece until finally making it to the stage in the early 00s where it has remained a constant ever since. Now, 20 years later, Gibson Custom is proud to announce the Noel Gallagher 1960 ES-355. Aged by the Murphy Lab and limited to just 200 units globally, this replication will include all the appointments which make the Gibson ES-355 the pinnacle of guitar craftsmanship, including a multi-ply bound maple body, a mahogany neck and ebony fretboard, a Varitone switch, and a Bigsby® B7 vibrato tailpiece. A reproduced handwritten lyric sheet, a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity, and a custom Bear Strap exactly like Noel's are included in the brown and pink hardshell case.
