EDS-1275 Doubleneck
12-String and 6-String in One
$6,499
The original two-in-one guitar from Gibson, now recreated to Gibson Custom’s high levels of craft and quality. Used by legends from Jimmy Page to Alex Lifeson, one of the most improbable guitars to ever be played has etched its place in music history since its introduction decades ago. The EDS-1275 Doubleneck features more than just stunning looks, with hand-selected body and neck woods, Custom Bucker pickups, and a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose finish for a truly no-compromise recreation that honors the original in tone, feel and spirit.
