Up for sale, a 1990's Burny RSG-140JP Jimmy Page model double neck electric guitar in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and upgraded with a quartet of USA-made Seymour Duncan humbuckers. A faithful Japanese-made iteration of Gibson's EDS-1275, this Burny model’s “JP” suffix refers to Jimmy Page, the artist largely responsible for the iconic double neck’s fame.

Produced in Japan by Fernandes under their Burny brand, the RSG-140JP is an extremely well-crafted and sonically stunning instrument, offering an upper 12 string neck and lower 6 string neck with a solid mahogany set neck construction. All four upgraded humbuckers have been thoughtfully chosen for their respective pickup positions.

The 12 string neck features Seymour Duncan's SH-2 Jazz humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, and these pickups boast an Alnico V bar magnet and a special coil wind for a glassy treble response and full, tight bass, while scooped mids help each note sing clearly. The 6 string neck has Duncan's SH-1 PAF at the neck, and TB5 in the bridge. The TB5 has an ideal balance of power, sustain, and distortion, cutting through with a distinctive high end and midrange attack. The guitar weighs 10lbs 13oz, freshly restrung with D'addario strings and dialed in for slinky action and optimal intonation.

Both necks have slender C-shaped profile carves, with the 6 string neck being a hair more slender overall. The 6 string neck measures .775” deep at the 1st fret and .850” at the 12th, while the 12 string neck measures .815” deep at the 1st fret and .875” at the 12th. Both necks feature split parallelogram inlays on the rosewood fretboards, with medium jumbo fretwire that has well-rounded crowns and shows virtually no wear on either neck. The scales are 24 3/4“ in length, the carved bone nuts measure 1 11/16" in width, and the headstocks are fitted with original Kluson-style single line tuners with tiny Deluxe text central to the gear housings and sharp edged, lightly greened transparent keystone buttons. These tuners absolutely nail the appearance of vintage Klusons, turning smoothly and holding pitch reliably.

All of the electronics work as intended, with the three-way toggle between the necks governing pickup selection, and the toggle on the treble side body horn switching between the necks. The wiring harness features original pots and upgraded premium Sprague Orange Drop tone capacitors. The nickel plating on the hardware shows only light patina, and the ABR-1 style bridges feature retainer wires and “Made in Japan” embossed text on the undersides. Plastics include the original black speed knobs and black four-play pickguards. Cosmetic wear is limited to buckle rash central to the back and one ding on the back of the treble side body horn, with some light pick scuffing across the strum path. The gloss finish on the neck profiles is flawless.

The original black tolex hardshell case with form-fit orange plush interior is included.
