how much shouid i pay?are they any good?where can i get one?
Your second question should be your first really- are they any good? Can't answer it personally but if you're only thinking of buying one because the Gallaghers had one, think again.For the best value 335-style guitar have a look at the Ibanez As73. If you want a union jack guitar buy one by Vintage. Epiphone may make the gallgher one in union jack but you'll pay more for the association than the guitar is necessarily worth in playing terms.In summary, put aside your hero worship and work out why you really want this guitar.

having played one which belongs to a friend, i can safely say that they are indeed nice guitars; at least the one he had was!
but jonbye raises a good point; you are probably paying a premium for the signature on the guitar. i think my buddy paid about $1000 CDN for it. it was definitely not more than that, but it could have also been a couple hundred bucks less... i don't recall too clearly, but I remember not being outraged by the price. As to where you can get one... well, I'm on the wrong side of the pond to help
My solution to overwhelming quiet
GAK in Birghton will probably do one if you really want one. However I'd still suggest shopping around - within epiphone, the dot studio is supposed to be brilliant value for money even if you're prepared to compromise the brit flag paint job
I've always thought about getting an Epiphone Sheraton. If I was to get a semi-hollow, it would be a Sheraton.
Most signature guitars are nothing more than novelty. However, a few of them actually have unique features/functions. The Epiphone BB King Lucille signature is pretty badass. Solid body 335 with a varitone switch and dual output jacks......nice.

Mmmmh. You can get pretty cool lo-fi tones with that vari-tone switch too. Plus it's the only semi-hollowbody I know that doesn't have f-holes.

^ Same with the ESP kh-2. It's great for more than just Metallica stuff.

The original Union Jack Epiphone sounded pretty bad, at least according to Noel himself. ^^ I don't think the Noel Gallagher Supernova Epiphone sounds too bad. I have never played one, but I'd say it wouldn't be worse than any other Epiphone semi-acoustic ...
