1978 Gibson RD Artist bass guitar in good condition. Natural finish. An all original example. The bass shows good honest play wear. Clean overall with some minor buckle rash which as yet hasn't worn the finish through and general wear to the finish around the edges. The neck shows a small amount of wear one side of the headstock just above the nut. (presumably from being kept on a wall hanger?) The neck is straight and the action set up nice and low. The frets are in good shape with only minimal fretwear and the truss rod is fully functioning. The fretboard itself shows a little wear up around frets 1-5. The headstock has no cracks/repairs. The original Moog circuitry and pots are untouched. Comes in the original hard case. Maple set neck and body, custom designed active electronics with built in compression / expansion, bight and neutral 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. Comes in the original hard case. Fully set up by my technician. Serial: 71108090 Weight 11.2 lbs
