Overview

The original "1235" doubleneck made at the legendary Kalamazoo, Michigan factory was introduced in 1963 and quickly become one of the most sought-after guitars in rock. Elvis Presley, bluesman Earl Hooker, Pete Townshend of The Who and John McLaughlin are just a few who caught on quickly to the "1235" and found it a stunning way to make an entrance on stage and on record. But the "1235" is primarily recognized as the guitar Jimmy Page used in countless Led Zeppelin concerts and recording sessions, most notably on the classic "Stairway to Heaven." A vintage "1235" or "SG double neck" is hardly ever seen in the wild and has been known primarily a custom-made guitar mostly seen in the hands of rock's elite. Until now.

Leave it to Epiphone to put the "1235" doubleneck monster back in play with the G-1275 Custom, an affordable version of the original "1235" with all of its true glory, sound, and style but without the vintage price tag or vintage problems of the original.

The SG Story
When the SG or "Solid Guitar" was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, it was called the "fretless wonder" for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. The Les Paul Custom SG featured three humbucker pickups, and since then, the SG has became the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Jimmy Page and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band. The original "1235" capitalized on the SG's stunning looks, futuristic sound, and lightweight mahogany body. Now Epiphone brings the guitar back to life as only they can.

High Flying Sound
The G-1275 Custom isn't just eye-catching, it sounds extraordinary, too. The 12-string half of the G-1275 Custom features an Alnico Classic humbucker in the neck position and an Alnico Classic Plus humbucker in the bridge position. The 6-string features an open coil Alnico Classic humbucker in the neck and an open coil Alnico Classic Plus humbucker at the bridge to give the guitar an even more distinctive look. Both pickups are controlled by full function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K O potentiometers.

Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust
Epiphone has also re created the one-of-a-kind hardware and pickguard that make the G-1275 Custom one of the most easily recognized guitars in rock. The 6-string and 12-string each have their own Epiphone all-metal 3-way toggle switch to select each guitar's pickups. There is also a second "master" all-metal 3-way toggle switch located between the 6-string and 12-string bridge. From here, players can choose the 12-string (up), the 6-string (down) or both (middle) for unlimited possibilities.

The G-1275 Custom features our famous LockTone bridge and special ABS style "Claw" tailpiece which yields incredible sustain (and great looks).

Custom Double Neck
Epiphone's G-1275 Custom begins with fabulous attention to detail starting with a Cherry, SG-style mahogany body with a flame maple top. Both the 12-string and 6-string necks feature hand-set glued mahogany necks with a 12" radius and a 24.75" scale. Both necks also feature rosewood fingerboards with medium jumbo frets and pearloid parallelogram block inlays. The 12-string features a 1.85" nut width while the 6-string is cut to the standard 1.68."

My wife bought this for my birthday in June...if you've been watching for awhile, you know they didn't get delivered until mid-July. Mine arrived 2 days ago and I could not be happier. I've been wanting one of these since I first saw The Eagles video on VH1 when they played music...must've been late 80s. Bang for the buck is totally there. It's solid, heavy and is a handful (read: headstock heavy) and setup out of the box was really close - probably acceptable to most folks. Specs say Epiphone "Deluxe" tuners - actual tuners say Wilkinson, tulips feel a little chintzy. Fit and finish is excellent. The necks are great, the feel is just right. It's a challenge, you have to play with it a bit...but it's totally worth it. Neck pup on the 6 is silky, bridge snarls. The 12 sounds great in either. Epiphone is killing it right now. If you're over 40 and going to play a full set, you'll need a Chiropractor and a bartender on close standby. A DMBL into a JVM210C on clean orange gets the solos from Hotel California just right for my ears. Extra credit: run that top neck through a JVM on OD Red, it's so saturated, so thick, it's a genuine wall. Extra, extra credit: GC phone customer service was excellent with a very finnicky, picky customer.

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-1275 Double Neck Electric Guitar:

    love this thing. Obviously a nice budget guitar if you wanna look like Paige haha. but if you've never played a double neck you should know it feels like a boat anchor and is a bit hard to control. feels like a big wrist work out when your done playing it.

      While I don't play professionally, I enjoy playing for my own pleasure. I have many guitars, and amps, some from the early 60's, and I love playing them all. This is a dream guitar. I'm proud to have it in my collection. I'm 66 and still rockin'. No complaints here.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-1275 Double Neck Electric Guitar:

      Such a nice instrument! Plays well, sounds great, beautiful to look at- my band mates used the word "sexy". I had to adjust the pickup height and the 6-string neck needed the truss rod adjusted a bit. I've seen sturdier packaging but there was no shipping damage so I guess the box it arrived in was sturdy enough. Other than those small issues, I have no complaints and I LOVE this guitar. I picked up Dunlop strap locks and a new leather/wool padded strap for it. I took it to practice last weekend and we practiced for 3.5 hours. I never put it down. It is a moderately heavy beast of a guitar, but it wasn't so heavy that it made my shoulder or back hurt. If you can, pick one of these up before they sell out of stock. I see that Gibson recently raised the retail price of the EDS-1275 to about $6500!!

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-1275 Double Neck Electric Guitar:

        Great guitar! Finish on the guitar is stunning! Really can't find a flaw. Beautiful guitar. Action/intonation was very playable right out of the box. Action was a little heavy on the six string but a twist of the bridge post was all it took to make it perfect for me. It came with 10's all around, think I may try it with 9's next string change. It's heavy, so you're not gonna play it all night...unless you sit down...;-) I play in a classic rock cover band and have been covering 12 string parts with a VG Strat which is a great guitar but gets a little cumbersome when changing back and forth from 12 string to 6 string, especially when you use a capo on the 12 string(i.e. hotel California). So when GC offered the special deal on this I had to snag it. Almost 4 grand for the Gibson was just not realistic for me, and I really can't imagine it being tat much better for my needs anyway. So far, I'm very happy with this guitar.
