Both Noel and Bonehead started plaing Rivieras on “Definitively Maybe”. Noel’s guitar was from the early 70?s and equpped with two full-sized humbuckers (Rivieras usually have mini-humbuckers), and a Tune-O-Matic bridge. This guitar can be seen in Oasis’ live gig on David Letterman’s Show in 1995, and it was his main guitar during that year.more
Paul Arthurs can be seen playing an Epiphone Riviera in this photo. Considering Oasis was on a budget during 1994 and recording of "Definitely Maybe", both Noel and Bonehead played Epiphone Rivieras.Unlike many other Rivieras, thoe 1970's Rivieras were also named the MIJ Rivieras, and they had, unlike other Rivieras, a stoptail bridge and humbuckers. While Gallagher, further switched to Gibsons and Fenders, Bonehead remained with a few Rivieras, which he played until 1999, when he departed from Oasis. Bonehead continued playing Rivieras to this day, let us take the Royal Albert Hall performance of Beady Eye for example. On October 18, 2013 he played "Columbia" with the same exact guitar he played with Oasis - the tobaccoburst Epiphone Riviera.more
