1963 to 1968

The Gibson EDS-1275 is a doubleneck Gibson electric guitar introduced in 1963 and still in production today.  The EDS-1275 was based on an earlier electric double neck model called the EMS-1235 (introduced in 1958).

The EDS-1275 has a solid SG style body - although the scale length is shorter than an SG, and the EDS-1275 has a fixed tailpiece (unlike the SG model). One of the necks is a six string and the other a 12-string.

The EDS was discontinued by Gibson in 1968 but was reintroduced again  in 1977 and is still available today (from 2003 onwards only  as a Gibson Custom Shop model).
