While not the first doubleneck guitar Gibson built, the EDS-1275 is certainly the most iconic. This 6-string/12-string combo was produced in small quantities from 1958 until production ceased in 1968. Originally a thinline hollowbody, this model was redesigned in late 1962 to look more like a contemporary SG. Production ceased in 1968, but an upsurge in popularity sparked by players like Jimmy Page prompted Gibson to reintroduce the EDS-1275 in 1974.

Years of Production: 1958 - 1968, 1974 - 1991, 1995 - present

Unique to this Year: Production remained very limited on Gibson doublenecks until an increase in 1977, so earlier ‘70s models are somewhat harder to find.

Body Style: Doubleneck, double cutaway, SG-style
