Gibson announces it’s teamed with world-renowned singer and guitarist, Noel Gallagher, to re-create his beloved Gibson J-150 guitar. The Noel Gallagher Gibson J-150 has been Noel’s go-to guitar for over 20 years and is offered worldwide.
“When Gibson brought the prototype down and that i saw it there on the ground i used to be like ‘It looks the bollocks man,’ on the other hand it sounded exactly like mine,” says Noel Gallagher. “I was blown away!”
“Noel Gallagher’s music not only defined a generation, but it also became the muse to some way of life for several round the world,” says Lee Bartram, EU Head of promoting at Gibson Brands. “Truly great music has the aptitude to move you to a flash in your life…a snapshot in time, one in every of life’s reference points. Noel’s music does that for millions who hear his songs and trip some place else, somewhere they believe they will be a rock n’ roll star… whether or not it’s for that briefest of moments. It’s been an honor to figure with such an iconic artist and bringing this project to life may be a small token of thanks for that music… and therefore the belief that comes with it.”
Since first making an appearance within the promo video for the classic Oasis song “Little By Little,” the Gibson J-150 has not left Noel’s side and has been seen and heard by audiences around the globe. Gibson is proud to launch a limited run of 200 pieces of Noel’s go-to guitar with features including an AA maple back and sides and a premium spruce top all complemented by a hand-rubbed Historic Thin finish. Together with a custom case, signed label, and reproduced hand-written lyric sheet, the Noel Gallagher Gibson J-150 guitar also will include a certified Adidas Trefoil Decal leading to a guitar that’s truly Familiar to Millions.
