Has anyone here seen, played or even owned a 1960s Gibson EBS 1250 ..this was the SG styled bass/guitar doublneck. Seen pix of normal SG finish and also white. Supposedly under 50 made, early ones w/ kool built in fuzz for the bass.

Years ago, Mikeís Music had one with Fuzztone that was refinished by Lays. It was $4,000.00 at the time, which seemed like a lot. I wish I would have bit the bullet because thatís the only one Iíve ever seen for sale. I have a 1964 EB-0F that I ended up having refinished. It's pretty rare but there are five times as many out there vs the doubleneck. I personally wish they would have put the bass on the bottom, just my opinion.......

I agree that bass or 12 string neck should be one the bottom, but no one does them that way except the original 1960s Dano 6/4.

I sold a car and have a bit of play money; one of the these even w/ a refin would be fun.

I think I may have seen on on my tour of Graceland. If memory serves me right.I remember on the tour there was a Double Neck Gibson that I had never seen before. After all he is, was the King.
