There are very few "firsts" left for us to experience here at TME, but we can safely say that this is the first time we've had a double-neck Gibson for sale at the shop. Now we can't stop playing Zeppelin tunes!

Real talk - this 1974 Gibson EDS-1275 marks the the first-year reintroduction of the famous double-neck SG style electric after its initial production ceased in 1968. Surprisingly lightweight and loaded with original Pat # stamped T-Top humbuckers, it's a toneful beast with some serious mojo.

And speaking of mojo - it's actually a mostly original example, with the only changes being the wiring harness (the original mid-1974 pots are included). The original Walnut finish has lightened up a bit over the years but still presents very well, and all of the original black plastics are in great shape with nothing beyond standard wear for a near 50 year old guitar. The original frets are on the lower side but still provide enough of a crown to maintain nice playability, and the original Kluson tuners work well and are in great shape.

This EDS-1275 was built just a few years before Gibson moved away from the T-Top spec humbuckers and into the "Dirty Fingers" era. These Pat # Stamped pickups have great output with a nice defined top end, solid low end, and a punchy midrange that still maintain clarity in both clean and gained up scenarios.

Outside of the play wear, the 12-string neck did suffer a very minor heel crack long ago. It's quite small and very stable, with no compromise to the neck joint or playability, but it's there. The 6-string neck's nut has a small chip on the low E edge, but does not affect string tuning or stability.

Beyond its general rarity, this EDS-1275 is just a great example of what a double-neck is all about.

Priced with original hardshell case.
