The iconic Gibson Garage is planting a flag in the UK, and opening day will rock for a good cause.

To celebrate the grand opening of Gibson Garage London, the legendary Gibson has teamed up with singer, songwriter, and guitarist Noel Gallagher to release 20 signed Gibson ’78 Les Paul Custom guitars.

Fans and players looking to purchase one of the guitars will have to do so in person on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024, at the grand opening of Gibson Garage London. Gallagher and Gibson have promised to donate all profits from the sales of the guitars to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The Noel Gallagher ’78 Custom Les Paul guitars are inspired by the guitar originally given to Gallagher by Johnny Marr (The Smiths) and was used extensively for both live performances and recording sessions with Oasis, most notably in the video for the song “Whatever.” These ’78 Les Paul Custom guitars feature a lightly aged Ebony finish by the Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab and each guitar is hand-signed by Noel Gallagher.

 

“The Les Paul Custom that Johnny gave me in 1994 was always one of my favorite guitars, and it carries a lot of history,” Gallagher says. “The reissues are great, they feel almost identical. I am delighted they are being sold to support the Teenage Cancer Trust.”

“As Gibson continues the relationship with Noel Gallagher there is no better way to start 2024 than by supporting a truly amazing cause that is close to both our hearts and minds,” says Lee Bartram, Head of Marketing, EU and UK, Gibson Brands. “We have worked closely with the Teenage Cancer Trust for many years, and it’s always an honor and privilege to support them in raising much-needed funds and awareness for the work they do.”

Gibson Garage London marks the first Gibson flagship outside of the U.S.

The new store follows the success of Gibson Garage Nashville and looks to extend the destination experience for international fans to experience the 130-year legacy of the Gibson brand.

The Gibson Garage London is located at 61-62 Eastcastle St, London, UK (one block from Oxford Street) and is open daily Monday-Saturday from 10:00-7:00 pm and from 12:00-6:00 pm on Sunday.
