Gibson RD Artist (1981/2, Tobacco Sunburst)

Here one of the flagship guitars of Gibson’s Guitar development, the 1981/2 Gibson RD Artist – Rare Gibson guitar and top of the range with factory fitted Moog electronics circuit. This is the 1981/2 version designed by Gibsons R& D team, hence the prefix RD Artist. Like all the Moog equipped guitars, this is a pandoras box with all the sound options. In a way it’s a fusion between Gibson Recording and Firebird. Simply stunning sound. In addition to simple tone volume, it has a ” Bright” switch and “Expander / compression” circuits. Guitar plays like a dream and is set up lovely and low. Body and neck are in superb condition and the hardware has acquired some cool patina. Frets are in excellent shape and the ebony fretboard plays nice and smooth. Lives in its rectangular hard case.
