Product Code: BS606

$ 1,250.00

The Gibson RD Artist Bass 2018 marks the reintroduction of Gibson's first active bass guitar. Originally released in the late '70s, the RD Artist Bass offers players a full 34" scale length along its all-maple construction for a punchy sound that never loses articulation or sustain. The dual humbucking pickups push their throaty tone through an active preamp that allows you to shape the instrument's bass, treble, and mid frequencies with precision. And Gibson gave their RD Artist Bass 2018 a full-contact Babicz bridge to elicit maximum stability and sustain from the instrument.
