    For sale is an awesome 1977 Gibson rd artist. This bass is in great shape for its age but has a couple bumps n bruises. The worst of the wear is by the headstock where it was on a stand(pictured). The previous owner had also drilled 2 little extra screw holes near the strap knobs for a strap. The original screw by the neck was cut. I'm currently using the original one on the bottom of the bass. Not sure why he felt the need to start new holes. This is an amazing sounding bass. It just sounds massive. The Moog electronics work though are a bit noisy. Recently the mini toggle switches have begun to slip back into the center when you engage them. This seems to be an issue where it would just need some new toggles installed but I don't really feel comfortable messing with the electronics in this beast at my electronic skill level. The case is also in good shape and has that funky pink interior! I love this bass bit have some unexpected expenses that recently popped up.

    I'm asking $1200 shipped

    Thanks!
