The Gibson EDS-1275 was initially introduced in 1958, and although it only featured in the Gibson catalog for four years initially, many high profile musicians would turn to the EDS-1275 over the years for its unique 6 string / 12 string hybrid design, with it being used on stage by Jimmy Page, Steve Miller and Don Felder among others over the years. This 1989 Gibson EDS-1275 if from the later reissue series of the guitar, with this particular example having a wonderful history.
This guitar was owned by John Corey, guitarist for the solo band of Don Henley of the Eagles. This instrument was used on stage for a number of years by Henley & Corey to perform 'Hotel California,' and includes signed provenance from Normans Rare Guitars of Los Angeles, who purchased the instrument from John Corey in the early 2000's. The body is made from solid Mahogany with a Mahogany neck, and is fitted with two sets of Gibson humbuckers, each with their own master volume and tone controls. This is a wonderful piece of music history with excellent provenance connecting it to the one of the EDS-1275 most recognised players.
This guitar is in excellent condition with only minor signs of play wear to the finish. This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty and its original case.
