1978 Gibson RD Artist Bass in exceptionally clean condition. Sunburst finish, Ebony fretboard, serial 73338001. The original Moog circuitry and pots are untouched. With the exception of the nut, this bass is all original including the case, which is also in great condition. Fully set up in our workshop with a fresh set of Rotosound round-wound strings. It's lighter than most other RD Artist Basses we've had weighing 10 lbs 15.5 oz. (Most are well over 11lbs) It's also slimmer at the nut than most RD Artists we've had measuring 41.2mm. The depth at the 1st fret is 21.75mm. This guitar was made at the Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA, January 4th, 1978. Production Number: 73.

This is one of the cleanest RD Artist we've had in stock. There are only a few very small scuffs/marks/dings to the body finish mainly around the edges. The neck, fretboard and headstock are very clean. The neck is straight and the action is set up nice and low. The frets are in great shape having been dressed in our workshop and the truss rod is fully functioning. The headstock has no cracks/repairs. This is a superb bass to play with a great range of tones.

Maple set neck and body, custom designed active electronics with built-in compression/expansion, bright and neutral modes. 3-way pickup selector. 34 1/2 inch scale. Pearloid dot inlays and headstock motif. This bass is active with no passive mode. Electronics designed by Moog. Gibson humbucker pickups.
