Vintage 1979 Gibson RD Artist guitar in very good condition. Black finish. The guitar shows very few dings. The neck is clean & straight and set up nice and low. The frets are in great shape and the truss rod is fully functioning. The headstock has no cracks/repairs. The original Moog circuitry and pot\'s are untouched. Comes in a non original hard case.

The Artist featured a double cut solid body, 2 humbuckers ,TP-6 tailpiece, ebony board, block inlays, gold plated parts active circuitry with switchable bright mode, treble and bass boost, compression and expansion. No passive mode. The electronics consisted of a 9v battery powering a circuit board the length of the body, accessible from the back cover. The neck scale was shortened in 1979 to 24¾\", a return to the standard Gibson scale used on other solid bodied guitars.
