Champagne Supernova

Epiphone came out with the Noel Gallagher version of the DOT archtop guitar back in 1999. right from the get go, i knew i had to have it, because it was light blue and looked like my dream guitar, the Gibson 335 or 330. It was the cheaper way into the game, and hoped it would have similar sounds. well, i was wrong, very very wrong. The Noel Gallagher Supernova definitely has the sound of Oasis, with the harsh tones and classic humbucker pick ups. nevertheless, i loved it. cheap workmanship (it's no gibson after all), the plastic "chrome", etc.. but still, it has it's own character, like the light blue, the distinctive shape, the rock sounds, (not jazz unfortunately), and nice fingerboard designs. the Maple body and mahogany fingerboard are assembled in korea and with that said it's still not bad. The first thing i did was remove the pick guard which bears Noel Gallagher's autograph, who needs that, really. After 6 years, i still like this guitar very much, although i prefer the Godin, which is much more solidly built and and has a better neck. I can't really play on the Supernova for too long before my hand hurts from having to reach more. Over all, you get what you pay for... a classic shape for regular price of around 700 USD. I bought it online, and it just might be the very first item i ever bought online back then, because i remember borrowing someone's credit card to do it. [equipbug]
