Vintage 1979 Gibson RD Artist bass guitar. Natural finish. Maple set neck, maple body & fingerboard, custom designed active electronics with built in compression and expansion modes.3 way pickup selector. 34 1/2 inch scale. Perloid dot inlays and headstock motif. This bass is active with no passive mode. Electronics designed by Moog. Gibson humbucker pickups.

The body and neck show lots of play wear, however this is all cosmetic and does not effect the playability of the bass. Gibson have stamped this bass as a second. This was usually done in terms of quality control regarding the finish on the instrument. Due to the natural play wear on this bass it is impossible to see what the original problem was. Extra screw hole in the upper horn where someone must have added an extra strap button. The ferrules are missing. The frets are in good shape as is the truss rod. Comes in the original hard case.
