Not earth-shattering news or anything. But I'm a little excited because my luthier just returned and old friend of mine. (Sorry for the lousy phone pic.)
I haven't played this bass for over 20 years and now it's been restored, except for the distressed finish. All the electronics have been cleaned, chrome de-rusted and polished, new strings and setup, even new OEM switch covers! I'm looking forward to rocking this bass on my next gig.
There's a lot of info about this bass here: http://www.flyguitars.com/gibson/bass/RDartist.php
It's a fairly interesting instrument. Thanks for letting me "show and tell".
Thank you for your indulgence,
