Gibson double-neck history:
Gibson's very first double-neck guitars were produced from 1958 to 1961 with a hollow body and two 6-string necks, one being a short-scale neck tuned to a higher octave; from 1962 to 1967, it had a solid body. A version with a 4-string bass and also a 6-string guitar neck was called the EBS-1250; it had an integrated fuzztone and was manufactured from 1962 to 1968 and once again from 1977 to 1978.
In 1963, the solid-body EDS-1275 was designed, resembling the SG version; this double-neck version was available until 1968. The EDS-1275 is frequently described as the "SG double-neck" due to its similar shape, although both necks of the 1275 have a much shorter scale fretboard than the SG and fixed tailpieces, where the SG has an adjustable one. The guitar was available in jet black, cherry, sunburst, and white.
