Union Jack themed hollowbody is replica of Noel Gallagher‘s Oasis-era Epiphone
Epiphone Guitars has unveiled their new 2014 lineup. One of the standouts is the Ltd. Edition “Union Jack” Sheraton Outfit, which is a replica of the iconic Epiphone hollowbody wielded by Oasis’ Noel Gallagher during the height of the Britpop era.
The guitar’s release was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the release of Oasis’ debut album Definitely Maybe.
Here is Epiphone’s official press release regarding the “Union Jack” Sheraton:

Another nouveau classic coming in 2014 is the Ltd. Edition “Union Jack” Sheraton Outfit in an Alpine White finish. Epiphone celebrates the 20th anniversary of Oasis’ debut, Definitely, Maybe with its own “Union Jack” Sheraton inspired by Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher’s hand-painted original.
In 2013, Epiphone celebrated its 140th anniversary as the working musician’s—and student musician’s—favorite instrument maker.
Now, Epiphone continues the celebration by announcing a sneak preview of nine exciting new models slated for summer 2014. Included in the new models are new designs like the Casino Coupe, the LP Express, the return of the Ltd. Ed. G-1275 doubleneck, as well as 2014 anniversary reissues including the historic “1939” Century Amp, and artist signature models from legendary bassist Jack Casady and blues hero Joe Bonamassa.
Celebrating our anniversary last year inspired us to make 2014 a very special year for fans,” said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg. “Epiphone has an instrument for every style and every level of musician, and our 2014 preview offers a taste of what will be our best year yet. We can’t wait to see these instruments in the hands of our players.”
Here’s a classic clip from of Noel and his original Union Jack Epiphone in action, along with brother Liam and the rest of the original Oasis lineup, doing a thunderous rendition of “Acquiesce” from Live at Main Road ’96.
