In the late 60s, these were special order only guitars. By most books, they stopped producing them between 1967 and 1977, but this guitar was clearly made in the late 60s and assembled in the early 70s. While many EDS-1275's tend to be neck heavy this guitar is well balanced and light and sits comfortably with a strap. This particular guitar has a lower tailpiece position as seen on the iconic Jimmy Page doubleneck, making this a very rare find.  

Body: Two-piece mahogany with sleeker '60s SG body contours as opposed to the blockier '70s style. 

Neck: One-piece mahogany necks (later models had three-piece necks) with a medium/large "C" profiles, 1 11/16" wide nuts, rosewood fretboards, 12" radii, no volutes, no "Made in USA" stamps, split parallelogram inlays, and pearloid inlayed Gibson logos (instead of the decals of the later models)

Neck Thickness: 6-string: .89" at the 1st fret, 1.07" at the 12th fret; 12-string: .91" at the 1st fret, 1.07" at the 12th fret

Pickups/Hardware: Original hardware, original pickups (6-string: 7.3 kOhms neck, 7.7 k bridge / 12-string 7.3 k neck, 7.4 k bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, three-way guitar selector, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: The top is in amazing shape with only some light play wear and some light dings. The sides have minor edge wear and the back has a touch of buckle rash / light scratching. The necks are both smooth and there is some minor edge wear around both headstocks. This EDS-1275 is absolutely incredible!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
