Noel’s first Gibson Les Paul was a 1960 spec sunburst model which he borrowed from Johnny Marr (Originally a 1952 Gibson Les Paul standard Goldtop converted to 60 spec) – ex-guitarist of The Smiths. Noel wrote and recorded “Slide Away” and “Live Forever” on this guitar. Unfortunately he broke the guitar’s neck at the heel in 1994 in Newcastle when a fan climbed on the stage and Noel smacked the fan with the guitar. According to Johnny Marr, he definitely recorded Live Forever with one. As Marr said, this guitar is visible in the [music video for Live Forever.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_2mWhfOhGU)more
Used with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds on tour.

He also plays this guitar in music videos of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, including ["Ballad Of The Mighty I"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzQYtpjMjSo), at 3:36 minute mark.more
