1997 Epiphone (Korea) G-1275 12-String/6-String Doubleneck Electric Guitar

Tone: Both necks feature fairly hot/fat-sounding humbuckers and, as such, the tone is on the darker and more aggressive side. You have to crank the treble a bit on whatever amp you're using to get the "jangly thing" going. It's definitely catering to the rawk crowd.

Feel: Both necks are on the quicker, modern side of things and, compared to vintage Gibson-style necks, they have flatter board radii. The ergonomics of switching necks is pretty good, though -- it doesn't feel encumbered at all.

Interesting features: Well, it's a doubleneck! It's in Alpine White! It looks outrageous! It looks Jimmy Page! It's a rare live set where you would need to be playing something like this -- but if you were playing something like this, it's a pretty stylish way to do it.

Repairs included: It's had a level/dress of the frets on both necks, some extra compensation ground into the 12-string bridge saddles, a replacement 3-way switch tip added, and setup work done. Both necks are playing bang-on and it's ready to go.

Condition notes: It's clean and almost entirely original save a switch tip and the bridge pickup on the 12-string side which is a cleaner, more jangly-sounding replacement. There's mild discoloration to the finish here and there and, I'm sure if you looked very closely, you could find a little mild playwear or usewear throughout.

It comes with: Yep, it has its original hard case!
