An iconic symbol of rock and roll’s power and possibility, the EDS-1275 has always been a jewel in Gibson Custom’s crown, acting as both a tribute to incredible guitar building, and historic guitar playing. Today’s EDS-1275 features a traditional solid mahogany body, with Nashville Tune-o-matic bridges and period-correct stop-plate tailpieces. Both necks are made from maple and fitted with 20-fret rosewood fingerboards with single-ply white binding and pearloid split parallelogram inlays. Other standard appointments include Gibson’s 1960 slim-taper profile on both necks and vintage tulip tuners.
The neck position humbucker pickup is Gibson’s 490R, which delivers the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, with a slight increase in upper mid-range response. The Gibson 498T is the bridge pickup, and the 490’s ideal complement. Taking the 490 one step further, the 498 swaps the Alnico II magnet to an Alnico V, thus making it slightly hotter with emphasis on mid-ranges and highs. The pole pieces on the 498T are also aligned a little further apart to accommodate the spacing of the strings at the bridge, which is different than the spacing of the strings at the neck. The EDS-1275 comes with a specially designed Gibson Custom case, and certificate of authenticity.
This is technically considered a used guitar, but it was originally purchased as a collector’s item and was never played. It has been safely stored since it was purchased new in 2006. It ships in its original shipping box.
