Being a big Oasis/Noel Gallagher fan, I've always liked these guitars. Noel and the rhythm guitarist in Oasis used these almost exclusively for the first few years, so I wanted to see what the fuss was about. This guitar is exceptional. I did my homework on them before I decided to look for one, but for all the owners who had one I didn't find one negative review. The only problem was finding a good one that wasn't overpriced, as they do seem to be fetching some high prices recently. I waited a while, but one came up on eBay during the week and I made the guy an offer and he accepted. Played it at its first gig last night, played it on every song (I usually take 3-4 guitars to a gig), and am honestly in love with it. Great condition for its age (32 years old). I have a custom shop 355 and a Trini Lopez Reissue, and although my 355 is my number one and the best guitar I have, this isn't too far off on par with my Trini Lopez. Truly great guitar, plays exceptionally well, and the Maxon pickups have their own fan group and I can see why. Anyway, here it is. 1983 Matsumoku Epiphone Riviera in Wine Red.
