I purchased this because I am in a RUSH tribute band and wanted a doubleneck to faithfully recreate certain RUSH songs. When I got it, I wasn't immediately amazed by how it played, as it is much different from my other guitars, but after a few shows it became clear to me that it is one of the best guitars in my collection. The quality of the construction is amazing, and it NEVER ceases to create a head jerk reaction from the crowd when it is brought out. Solid construction with set necks and quality finish. It plays like a dream and is very sturdy. Truly a great guitar for the $$.

I like this guitar. Both necks feel nice, and it has a good tone. However I have a few problems with this guitar. On my G-1275, I have trouble keeping it in tune, because the necks will not sit straight. They both lean towards the high strings. I've had to shim both necks on the side of the pocket nearest the high e strings. good sound, feel, and versatility, but bad build quality. I almost expected better of epiphone.

Great buy for the money

By tlg-SsSni

from WV

I took a chance and couldn't be more satisfied. I cannot find one issue with this guitar. Although I lowered the 6 string a tad, it was good right out of the box. I haven't touched the 12 string neck yet, it's also a great player. I've never played the gibson version, but for the price, it can't be that much better. I guess a double neck is kinda a novelty thing, if you want one, you can't go wrong with this buy. Great value for the bucks.

My Favorite

By Tom-7DW5c

from Montana

See all my reviews

I got thins guitar as a completely random christmas present a year ago. And I could not be happier with it. Both necks play great and I have had no tuning problems. I think the 12 string neck is where this guitar really shines. The octave strings ring out beutifully. Plugged in it sounds great, clean and with overdrive, but one neck is a little louder than the other. Also, this guitar only has 20 frets, and the highest ones are difficult to reach (i.e. Stairway to Heaven solo) But other than that, there are no more shortcomings with this guitar. I strongly recommend a thick padded strap because thins behemoth weighs a good 20 pounds.

Plays Great!

By Beny

from Florida via NJ

See all my reviews

I recieved this guitar afew days ago. Checked it out, tuned it, and prayed for the best. Well, I was pleasently suprised. It plays Very Good on both necks. Fretbaords are good(and fast). Finish is beautiful. For the price, I don't see how you can go wrong. Pickups on both necks are very distinctive sounding. The only thing I can really complain about is the weight. It is heavy, but its worth it. Would I recommend it? Most definetly, but be aware of the weight issue.

Speachless!!!

By jimmyppunk

from Shamokin, PA

i can honestly say that every time i whip this baby out at shows i get an unbelievable reaction from people when i play this.... its a real show stopping guitar. the only problem i have with this is the weight lol. its much heavier than the guitars we play which the explorer and the les paul. but all i can say is that this can rip the roof off of clubs.

Double Headed Monster

By Pat Fleming

from Boston, MA

I collect pro guitars and this axe is a real show stopper. It's not much heavier than my Gibson Les Paul and it sounds and plays great. To be honest I bought it just because it would add some eye candy to my collection. But I've already recorded and played live with it is quickly becoming a favorite. Having the option to switch from 6 to 12 strings is a great convenience when playing live.

2 nice epis in 1

By two timer

from fox cities, WI

See all my reviews

I've had this guitar for 7 months and still enjoy it like a new toy. The reasons I don't give it a 5 across the board is: the neck selector switch is not the best quality. Sometimes it cuts out whem I switch to 12 string. Also, the output of the 6 string is slightly hotter. This was easily fixed with pickup covers. Cheaper than new pickups and it looks nice too. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this guitar - and believe me, I've had something to compare it to! In the late 70's I had a Gibson double neck (think Alex Lifeson, Hemispheres era) that was, well, a piece of junk. The shorter 12 string headstock made string changing a nightmare, the tuners were those crappy Klusons that would bend at the shaft if you looked at 'em funny, the output balances of the pickups didn't match, the 12 string neck would bow or fret out if you didn't have the right gauge strings (I used to buy seperate strings and custom gauge sets) and the neck binding was a fraction of an inch thinner than the white paint job, just enough to made it slightly uncomfortable for Steve Cropper-esqe grips. Then, to top it all off, after a long, hot road trip in the band truck, the thing weather-chequed so bad you could stand a dime in the cracks! Needless to say, after spending what I bought it for to have it fixed and stageworthy, I ended up trading it for a Dean Markly CD60. So as you can see the Epi G1275 is a great deal IMO. Classic SG tones, good to great intonation (even that dreaded 12 string G string 12th fret position), nicely finished frets, fairly well-balanced considering the mass of the headstocks, and even though it has little to do with tone, this baby is a LOOKER. Guaranteed to turn heads at your next gig. I'm satisfied!

Go for it!

By Aaron-4M-5X

from MON (middle of nowhere), PA

See all my reviews

I've wanted a Gibson double neck for two decades now. Price was always the kicker, and I was reluctant to do the Epi. BIG MISTAKE! I should have got this guitar ages ago. The tuners are precise, and it STAYS in tune (even the factory-new strings)! That was a shocker - I was thinking of tweeking it with Gibson accessories - but there is truly no need - pickups, bridge, intonation perfect right out of the box-AMAZING!The three toggle switches were designed and placed RIGHT for ease of use in play. The 12 string neck plays like an SG itself, and is lifted to the right height for ease of play.(It MELTS under your fingers-not near the effort required to get a bar chord as most 12 stringers.) The 6 neck is also PERFECT to what you would hope for. The only negative I have is the weight. I'm a farmer and carpenter - strong and healthy. 20 minutes into it I needed the hot tub. Stuffing a sock with foam and putting it under the strap helps. GET A PADDED STRAP (and a barstool if you will play it more than 1 song at a time)! Do not regret waiting as I have. This guitar IS a Gibson in every respect but three - chrome instead of gold, and the name on the headstock, and three extra thousand bucks are left in your pocket. Other than that, I defy anyone to tell the difference. Epiphone is owned by Gibson. Why take a $4000 instrument into night clubs to get banged up? For a rhythm guitarist, studio musician, and anything else I can think of, this is the real deal.

I Love This Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I absolutely love this guitar.I wanted this guitar for the 12 string, but the 6 string SG is awesome also. It stays in tune, the action is great, and the tones are excellent.The toggle switches are a little noisy.Buy one.

Still Great after 14 years!

By epiplayer1

from Eastern Oregon

This is a Great guitar. I bought mine from Musicians Friend around 1997 when I first heard about them. Absolutely no problems after all these years. Both necks still stay in tune with themselves and each other. Sound and sustain are excellent. The only real drawback is weight, I use a Slider harness-type strap and I also recommend installing strap locks. For the price it can't be beat!

great guitar for the price.

By Wynn-voRW-

I was impressed by the sound and quality of the instrument. Plus, the playability is good even though it is a bit stock heavy, but it's worth it for the sound and the balance can be compensated for. I've been toying around with it for a few days and am quite happy with my purchase.

Just as I remember!

By Double Neck Kid

from North East

I purchased an original Gibson White Double Neck in 1980, I sold it 13 years later when I got married. I saw this Epiphone a couple of years ago, and I knew I had to have it! Plays great on both necks and is so close to my original Gibson, it even smells like I remembered (if you have one you know what I mean)! The only issues I had is she got a little scratched in shipping, but I would recommend this awesome guitar!!

Perfect Guitar

By Andy-fQAC2

from Door County, WI

I bought this guitar a little over a month ago and it is a great guitar! It plays great, it looks great, and it sounds great! It is heavy but it is two guitars in one so you cannot expect it to be light. It has an lifetime warranty which is great so you never have to worry about paying for any defects in the guitar. The tuning is phenominal. I tuned it the day I got it and never had to tune it since. The toggle switches are great it makes the guitar sound really good.The factory strings on it are perfect. My only complaint is that if you buy a guitar like this it should come with a case. But other than that, this is a GREAT guitar.

Jolly Good Fun

By Hex

from Houston, Texas

See all my reviews

I got this guitar used, but in nearly new condition. This thing is great, plays well on both the 12 and 6 string. Background: I own a Mexi Strat, a Fender CD-140SCE, and a Gretsch Electromatic. Have played seriously for a few years.Just a few comments on mine. The G string(s) on both seem to get knocked out of tune after not much playing. I dont know...maybe the tuners are slipping or something. Other then that its a little heavy. Not just overall weight, but its neck heavy and its weird at first unless you've played an SG. In conclusion, great guitar, I highly recommend it.

Rock

By spencer-iJlIG

I purchased this guitar and let me tell you it was well worth it some of the best money I have ever spent. I own many guitars and I have played quite a few. Pros. The look The fret work is great the pickups sound good the bridge is same one on the gibson. The tuners stay in tune well the neck and finnish are good. The cons the binding has slightly yellowed when it came. The best part is the entire guitar is mahogany. THIS THING BOOMS the gibson has maple which is not as loud. however this thing is insanely heavy i am a big burly guy and this thing is almost to heavy for me.

It IS...All That!

By LynnR

from Martinsburg WV

Owned this guitar for 3 months now. I read the reviews before I bought and I expected the guitar to be pretty sweet. After playing it at home, at practice and on the job now for 3 months I can honestly say it is all that!!!! I have own Gibsons (all kinds) for 42 years starting with a brand new Melody Maker in 1968. This thing is as sweet as any of them. Nice finish, great looks, pick ups sound good, fingers/plays nice, good hardware. two words....buy it.

BLOWN AWAY

By sgmantodamax

from minnesota

See all my reviews

i have had this since my first year of playing and it hasnt let me down. i couldnt be happier with it for the price its at. the only thing ive done to it is i put covers on the 6string pickups so it looks more uniform. even if its not a gibson people still admire the guitar owning a gibson sg(faded and its a 2010) the difference in the 6 string on thedouble neck the gibson is still better for the tone quality but whats to argue when you have 2 necks on one body.

It does the trick...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a great guitar to purchase if you are looking for the double neck experience. The guitars quailty is more then enough to satisfy anyone to some degree plus the thing is a looker. It plays just fine, although just like any guitar you may need to have it setup. The 12 string sound great at both tube overdrive and tube screamer od, and of course the six string takes care of business on its end.There are plenty of small things that will let you know it is a Gibson quality instrument, but these are things that can be overlooked by the working musician. With that said, when this thing breaks down to unplayable or just gets worn all the way out (I play alot and have already had it for 3 years) I will probably save up and wait out for the Gibson. There is a difference unfortunately.But, this one does great for now!
