Epiphone Limited Edition G-1275 Electric

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 3 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 "1275" capitalized on the SG's stunning looks, futuristic sound, and lightweight mahogany body. Now Epiphone brings the guitar back to life as only Epiphone can.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Love it!"
Overall: This guitar is beautiful; a work of art. It plays and sounds great. The twelve-string was set up perfectly right out of the box, with low action and accurate intonation. I couldn't believe how effortless it was to play. The six-string neck had heavier strings and needed some adjustments, which I haven't quite finished yet (still needs a truss rod adjustment), but also plays quite nicely. The tone coming out of my amp is impressively close to the original Gibson, and the sustain is awesome. I've had it a couple weeks and I still can't help picking it up every time I look at it. As others have said, the tonal possibilities are endless, and it's a joy just experimenting with all the different settings. I always wondered what Jimmy Page meant about the "resonance" that happens between the two necks. Now I know Exactly what he means. It's particularly notable when playing the twelve, with both necks active, but you can also hear it when playing without electricity. This effect changes dramatically when you change pickup settings. That's just one more aspect of this incredibly versatile and intriguing instrument. I want to hang this on the wall, but I'm reluctant to use two standard hangers because of the weight. I'm planning to build a mount that spans two wall joists just for this guitar. I also still have to buy a case, which are surprisingly elusive.
