1959 Gibson EDS-1275 Spruce Top Doubleneck 6/12

This Gibson EDS-1275 1959 "Double Twelve" doubleneck guitar with 6 and 12 string necks has survived in really great condition with no breaks or repairs. Apart from tuners, knobs, and two switch tips, it's completely original throughout with all the important parts intact. Gibson's catalog offered the model in White, Black, and Sunburst but the least commonly ordered finish appears to be Sunburst compared to the few already known examples. The Gibson Shipment Totals book by Larry Meiners lists only 15 examples shipped in 1959. If the totals in the book are correct, then only 46 examples were ever made before the transition to solid body construction in 1962.
