Gibson 1977 RD Artist Bass
One of our favorite classic basses, especially because of the Robert Moog designed "compander" circuit. As the name implies, it slightly compresses the signal, yet expands the overall sound of the bass. Punchy, piano-y, and just a huge sound. Includes original case, warranty/ ownership card, and factory schematics for the Moog circuitry. In amazing condition, especially being 46 years old, with no dings, scratches, or buckle rash, only the patina expected for it being handled for so many years. Lots of fret life, totally functional truss rod, nice straight neck.
