    Description

    1976 Gibson RD-Artist Natural 6-String Electric Bass Guitar. Very rare, most likely a proto-type, RD Artist style body with grabber, ripper and marauder style pickups, and 6-string to boot. Very cool with some oddities. The pick-guard is somewhat crude at the edges but is likely original. Pots date to 1976 (latter weeks). Oddly also has a scarf joint neck with GS7 stamped or scratched onto the back. No truss rod cover but it would likely be standard Gibson 3 ply B/W/B.
    Hard case included. Condition: Very Good.
