Hey guys. I've recently purchased a sweet sweet SG doubleneck in some variation sunburst. I've attempted to take a few photos but nevertheless my photographic skills have destroyed the attempt and doesn't do the actual guitar any justice.

The 6 string has the best SG vibe I have ever heard, and the neck has the perfect profile.


One thing that does quiz me is that the certificate of authenticity is that the guitar was named as a ES-1275, which doesn't really make any sense since its not a semi hollow construction, and searching it on gibson.com or google won't make anything turn up.

If you guys can help with identifying this guitar, I would appreciate it greatly.

It's actually an EDS-1275, but I don't know what it stands for. I use to have a cherry one...wish I had kept it. Nice guitar!!!

Please post a picture of the back of the headstock as well, with the serial number clearly visible.

EDS would stand for Electric Double neck Spanish

Kind regards,

Stijn

The serial number is registered as an DSED VS VOS, made at the Custom Shop in Nashville. I need to ask the Custom Shop for more specifications.

Thanks,

Stijn

The specifications of this guitar are as follows:

Itís a custom order 70ís style EDS-1275 (notice the volute on back of each headstock). The pickups are Custom Buckers, the hardware is Nickel, and the color is Vintage Sunburst with V.O.S. treatment.



These are all the specs.



I have attached the specs of the "standard" EDS-1275; just for reference.

Kind regards,

Stijn
