The Gibson EDS 1275

Ever since I saw Jimmy Page play “Stairway to Heaven” on “The Song Remains the Same” on his Gibson EDS 1275 doubleneck guitar, I have wanted one of these. Just thinking of all the sounds I could get from having both a 12 string and 6 string built into one electric guitar gets me excited. Then I saw Alex Lifeson of Rush Playing a white one and man, was that a cool looking instrument…

Gibson Custom EDS-1275 Double-Neck Electric Guitar

The Gibson EDS 1275 Double Neck Electric Guitar is the original model and set up that was so iconic in the early 70s. It’s totally handmade in Nashville and quantities are extremely limited. Two solid maple necks are set on a surprisingly lightweight, mahogany body.

It has 490R/498T Alnico II humbuckers and 20 fret rosewood fingerboards with inlays. Tune-O-Matic bridge and vintage tuners along with 3-way selector switches for both necks allow you to create a range of sounds that are literally out of this world. Includes a custom Gibson hardshell case.

    Anways, the Gibsons are just out of my price range but they also have a cheaper model, the Epiphone G1275, which is basically the same instrument, just not made in the USA.

i wish they were cheaper

The Dean “Dave Mustaine USA” Double-Neck guitar is a really awesome piece of craftsmanship. Dean hand builds all of their USA Models which is why I like Dean over most of the other USA made companies. You get a “Boutique”quality guitar at an off the rack price. This Double-Neck Mustaine model is a bit pricey though for anyone, retailing for around $9000.00 but the street price is a cool $6000.00. Try checking with a few Dean”USA” dealers that have clinics and workshops because often they will have a few models that have been used for an hour or so while being played during the “Clinic” and that will ALWAYS drop the price by about 30% or more and the guitar is just like new.

Believe when I say that just because the Agile Double Neck is so cheap doesn’t mean it doesn’t kick ass. The Quality of the Gibson’s is only slightly better than it.

Gotta say I agree — I have a white agile double neck lefty and it feels great
sounds fantastic on both 12 or 6 strings. I used to have an SG but had to sell
it — this one can cover what I miss from an SG enough that I don’t need to get
another one some day…only 20 frets but as an upside down strat player, I have
to work for those notes anyway so I rarely play that high.
