    This guitar stirs the soul. I saw the live performances of stairway to heaven and was of course mezmorized by this magnificent instrument. I always thought, maybe someday, I could get one. Soon "maybe" turned into "as soon as soon as possible." I'm in highshool, and durning summer break, I got a job pretty much for the sole purpose of getting money for this guitar. I went into the guitar store and there it was on the wall. The guy there let me play it, and I was sure, I had to have it. I of course began playing Stairway, and then I looked up, and there was a mural of Jimmy Page playing the very same guitar. It was a sign from the rock gods, and I knew I needed the guitar. A few weeks later, I walked back into that store and bought my new axe. I lowered the action, and viola! a choice work of art. The guitar is astheticly very pleasing, featuring a beautiful maple vaneer, and very well done abalone inlays. I play in a band and after bringing this bad boy to rehearsal, I had the other guitarist wanting one for himself. I've had the axe for just a few day, but already, I am famous around school for having it. they all just stare in disbelieve, and salivate a bit. obviously, it's a bit neck heavy, but it's well worth it, and a good thivk leather strap, this is quite easy to get used to. True, it's not a gibson, but it still has that classic stairway tone, and the six string has all the crunch and bie you'd expect from an sg. I have five guitars, and I like all of them for different reasons, but this one really trumps them all. Whenever I even begin to describe this guitar to someone, whether or not they know anything about gitars, they are extremely impressed. I'm playing my first gig with it tomorrow and I can't wait. If you are considering buying an electric 12 string, I highly suggest this one. it is the best feeling elecric twelve I've played, although I'll admit, I haven't played too many. I really love this guitar, and I'm sure you will too. email me if you have any questions, I'd love to spread the joy of this fantastic instrument.

    I've always been a ZEP fan so the guitar appealed to me. I was surprised how light it was for a double neck but it still has good sustain.I have one of the original 'limited edition' models and had it for about 3 years.Tuners: Plastic - will eventually crack but the guitar stays in tune very well.Pickups: No punch whatsover. I'm going to have to replace all 4. At best I would describe the sound as "muddy".Wish: I wish the 2 necks had been reversed in position.Action: Is good considering the neck impediments.Make sure you gave a wide guitar stand and long strap. Its a little awkward to balance.The best feature was the finish.

    Good Quality Guitar But More of a Novelty

    By Brisco County Jr

    from Washington

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    I bought mine used, and it is worth it. The guitar is actually pretty comfortable to play sitting down. Both necks have a real nice feel. The electronics leave a lot to be desired for me. I will change them out if I end up playing it more than just occasionally. It might come in handy if you do a lot of playing live but I am a studio musician and would not use it there. I have other guitars with a lot better sound that are easier to play. It was just something that was a good price that I could add to my collection. I doubt you would be dissapointed in buying one of these.
    Good quality guitar.

    Amazing Guitar

    By Daniel Perinio

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is AMAZING!!!!!! especially is your a crazy Led Zeppelin Fan like me. Ever since I watched The Song Remains The Same when I was 5 and saw Jimmy play it in TSRTS, The Rain Song and Starway To Heaven, I always wanted to get one of these bad boys and now I have Finally got one for my birthday. It plays great, sounds great (especially through a marshall) and it feels great when playing it and it also looks awsome like Jimmys.
    Amazing
    Great Price considering how good this guitar is.

    It is great

    By Aaron Jarvis

    from Chicago

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar new from Muscians Friend after I played it in a shop. At first you think its a novelty but then you pick it up and play it... Mine isnt the same tho. I changed the electronics to Gibson electronics, then changed 5 string tail piece to a Bigsby B5. The tuners are Les Paul tuners and the nut is a different nut. It was great before hand but I wnated to modify it to my needs.

    It's an Epiphone

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    I have played this guitar at a differant shop and the only thing that kept me from buying it was i wanted the Gibson Les Paul. I have owned Epiphone guitars in the past and they are very good instruments. You can't compare an Epiphone to a Gibson, The Electronics differ. The necks very a little and the finish isn't the same. However, the Epiphone guitars will last as long as a Gibson if you change the electronics. The sustain is good and you can rock the house just the same. Make guitars so when a 11 or 12 year old wants to become the next Eddie Van Halen, He can.

    This guitar is a Novelty!

    By Jesus-E8A-.

    from Brownsville Texas

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    I have played this guitar and please take my word on this, its fun to mess around with but not to waste 1100 bucks on! The quality isnt too bad for an epiphone, and it has nice sustain, but you cant axis the upper frets. Because of that, the entire unit is complete garbage. If you have the money to waste, I recommend the Gibson.

    Trust me, DO NOT BUY THIS GUITAR!!!!!

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    Well about 4 years ago I was looking to buy a sg with 3 humbuckers, and the day I walked into the shop to purchase this sg with the 3 humbuckers, i noticed hanging above me was this double neck guitar. I looked at it, and then I looked at the sg with the 3 humbuckers and grabbed the double neck. that was probably the biggest mistake i have made yet in my young life. At the ripe old age of 11 i guess I wasn't thinking ahead or anything of the sort, so I purchased it. For the next two weeks all that I played was that guitar, when I realized i had NO axis to the upper frets. This posed a problem so I decided to try and sell it... well 4 years later rolls around, and today I finally traded it for a Marshall Class 5 amp. The price difference is quite notable. BOTTOM LINE? should have got an amp.

    good guitar

    By epishredder

    from texas

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    personally every time i play the gibson version of this guitar i think that they are trying to rip me off because of the name i like the switches better on the epiphone and as far as action goes i can not tell a difference at all if both are properly set up the only thing was that the gibson did have a lot better pickups on the six string neck

    Not the same as the Gibson

    By Rock n Roll Cole

    from Niagara Falls, Canada

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    This is an amazing rig for the price (keyword), but when I see folks say it's the same thing as the Gibson just thousands less in price and the headstock logo says Gibson instead of Epi.they really are very wrong. The pick ups, volume and tone pots, wiring, necks, bridges and tailpieces are all different to name a few things. The parts used in the Epi are all overseas stuff, like the whole guitar is. Where as the Gibby is ALL made in the U.S. with traditional parts, pick ups, pots and wiring etc. It sounds way better, especially at high/giging volumes and the overall build and feel are so much better on the Gibson that it makes for an easier and faster playing guitar. For the money this is still a great deal, but at high volume it muds up, the neckes are slow and the tone pots really don't change the tone much, they just muffle it when turned all the way down. To get this to sound just like the Gibby your gonna have to put a grand into it and it will still just be a hot rodded Epi...really play both and you decide why there is a big price difference. Looks don't add up to sound, tone, build, playability and performance. If it did we'd all play cheap Chinese knock offs.

    Pleasantly surprised

    By Brent-a8vZ6

    from Ottawa, ON

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    First off, I have to say that I'm a Gibson/Fender snob and only play on vintage equipment so I was hesitant about buying Epi but the Gibson version is way out of my price range. I have to say, I was really surprised with how well it plays. The neck was set up nicely, no buzzing, intonation was good and the thing stays in tune!! Output levels are matched nicely between the 12 and 6 necks so switching is seamless. Yes it's heavy, but it's got 2 necks, what do you expect. The balance is an issue at first but you learn to compensate fairly quickly.Couple of things I don't like: tuning pegs are way too sensitive and the sensitivity is not uniform among all the pegs...plan on replacing them but not a big deal because, like I said, it stays in tune. Bridges were flimsy and not firmly affixed to the body so I had them replaced with Gibson ones. Tone knobs are also poor, you can't hear any difference between 4 and 10. Finally, and in my opinion, the most pressing issue are the pickups. Yes they're hot and sound ok when moderately driven, but when cranked, clarity is an issue. The neck pickups are very muddy when driven and, in my opinion, are pretty much useless (I play through a Fender Tremolux head and Hiwatt cab). I will be replacing the pickups with p94's.That said, I think the guitar is still a good buy and would certainly buy one again if my mine were ripped.

    Poor man's Gibson? Nope....

    By JimInCairns.

    from Cairns, Queensland, Australia

    Comments about Epiphone G-1275 Double-Neck Custom Electric Guitar:

    The Epiphone 1275 is a stand-alone instrument in its own right. I have twenty guitars, and the 6+12 is rapidly becoming my favourite 'pick-up-and-play' whenever I reach for a guitar. It's a delight once you master the changing from one neck to the other, and figure out how to set the switches for the performance you desire. Go ahead; try one. I'm sure thaqt you'll fall in love with it.
