We're compiling the best Holiday 2016 music gear deals. See them here.
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!
