Does it have the split parrallelagram inlays on the fretboard?

 

Can't see the necks on these usually, painted, but as suggested, a sheri neck

would have 5 piece construction, don't know about the Riv. Should be able to see the back on the

model your interested in, and make a determination from there.

 

The flag model going for US $1200.00

The blue model going for US $750.00

The Supernova was originally available in 4 colours - Cherry, Ebony, Vintage Sunburst and Blue. Over time the first 3 were dropped and the Union Jack was introduced which lasted until a couple of years ago.

 

The Natural one is a new one on me, never heard or seen of one before.... and i've been looking!

I thought the same, been digging real hard to try and find some background on it but nothing, but you can see it there in the flesh!!! Its no way a fake, spent some time scrutinizing over it after owning several korean epiphone semis to make sure and it does say NA as the colour code so it must be the real deal. So what we talking value wise? do you think its an investment?

Some guys name on it

 

That is actually the most insulting thing I've ever read

 

I understand you're from America

 

And Oasis never meant to you Americans what they did to us Brits, you probably don't know

who Noel Gallagher is and what Oasis did for music in the 90s, but at least show some respect

even if you don't like them or know much about them, I mean just this week they've had a

whole issue of NME dedicated to them, they played Knebworth, 250,000 people a night over two nights

3 Million people applied for a ticket, that is 1 in 20 Britons, that is just mind blowing to be fair

 

For many people The Beatles of our generation

haha true enough i loove noel got to speak with him once, and oasis is my fav band ever. however, even he has talked down epi and for the most part the supernova is more marketing than muscle. that being said if the price were right i'd own one in a heartbeat, but for many it's a lot like the joe strummer tele where it's sort of alike but not nearly the same

We know who they are. Oasis is that English band with Jack Lemmon and Paul McCarthy. And Gallagher is in the band Smashing Watermelons.

I only have one guitar that "had" some guys name on it. I call it my Epiphone Emperor II........Previous owner took the name off the pickguard which I am happy about.

 

Don't want some guys name on my guitars.

 

Do want my guitars to have "similar" tone to certain music I love.

 

Because the tunes I like to learn how to play are the tunes I love.

 

Putting p-90 sounding Mean 90's in my Emperor hoping or a "T Bone" sort of sound

 

I have also put this pickup on order for my Sherri.

 

Soundfile: The neck pickup I will use on my Sheraton

 

Guess whose tone I want to get close to on my Sherri......?

 

Maybe when I get close to what I am after, I should get two TRC's engraved TBW for the Emperor and JLH for the Sherri.

Baxter.....

 

If you only have pics of it, keep researching, at least play it first (if possible). I would still (personally) try to find out what kind of neck construction it has. Others here would be able to expand on the virtues of one piece vs 5 piece constructed necks. You'll have to contact Gibson/Epi direct to find out about the number of natural finish products that were made.

There is no Epiphone constructed this Century that is an "Investment" quality guitar. But if you can get it for cheap as a plyer' date=' go ahead.[/quote']

 

what about the Macca texans and JL Casinos (USandA) and the Wilshire...?

 

I DO think these will be colectable at some point, along with the Elite/Elitists in the distant future (35-50 years from now).
