For recording the Oasis’s 1994 debut album “Definitely Maybe” Noel used Epiphone guitars, mostly because he was unemployed prior to recording and was not able to purchase a Gibson. This was a stock Epiphone Les Paul in cherry sunburst. It can be seen in Supersonic music video. (timestamp : 0:44) Early Oasis gigs were also played with this guitar. Famous ["Splash" gig](https://guitarplayer.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/noel_94.jpg) was played with an Epiphone Les Paul Standard.more
This is the real deal if you want a very good sounding Les Paul and don't want to spend maybe 4-5 times its price to have a different logo on the head stock. I had to adjust the pickups slightly (lower the bass and raise the treble) and adjust the intonation after changing to a different string gauge, but nothing I couldn't handle with ease.
My favorite these days!
