Description & Specs

Watch any of the Oasis music videos from the height of the band’s mid-’90s heyday—like “Don’t Look Back In Anger” or “Champagne Supernova,” for example—or live concert footage from that era, and you’re sure to see the guitar that started it all for Noel Gallagher. While the guitarist played various Gibson and Epiphone guitars during the early Oasis tours, it was his ‘80s Epiphone Riviera in a Dark Wine Red finish that really stood out. 

Now, Oasis fans can access the look and sound of the instrument that defined the experience of seeing the ultimate British rock ‘n’ roll band with the Epiphone Noel Gallagher Riviera in stunning Dark Wine Red. With the original model still in the artist’s collection, Epiphone was granted access and, as a result, has included many historical elements of the original model. 

Featuring a color and finish that closely match original models from that era, the Noel Gallagher Riviera comes equipped with Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO pickups to ensure the sound matches the looks, plus a SlimTaper neck, complete with the inclusion of a volute, as well as extra touches—such as the historically accurate “E” appointments on the pickguard and truss rod cover, in addition to a brown soundhole label, which gives this guitar a “vintage feel.” Complete with an Epiphone hardshell case, the guitar is finished off with a replica of the artist’s signature on the back of the headstock.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
