The Supernova was a Korean-made electric guitar manufactured by Epiphone for Noel Gallagher of the English rock band Oasis. Noel used a customised Epiphone Sheraton guitar with a Union Jack design during many Oasis shows throughout the tour promoting the second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. The Epiphone Supernova was designed to represent that guitar, even though there are several differences, for instance, the Sheraton guitar used by Noel had mini-humbucker pickups, gold hardware and a frequensator tailpiece whereas the Supernova has regular humbucker pickups and a stop-style tailpiece. The original guitar is now on display at the British Music Experience at the O2 arena. According to Noel Gallagher's AMA on Reddit website, back in 2015. on question "Did you have much involvement in the design or was it just a nice big bag of cash handed over for the use of your signature?", Gallagher answered : "Okay, FIRSTLY, there was no big bag of fucking cash. Secondly, I was involved in the design. Thirdly, I can't fucking remember what my involvement was.Fourthly, I do have one, somewhere. But... I shouldn't have made them sonic blue color. It's disgustin'."more
