Seems a little overpriced, though.
me like,me like!the color is awesome,the shape is awesome,and the pickguard is awesome,but weird-shaped,but me like!
Ah, the RD Artist... I haven't seen a picture of one of them, in a while.
My friend Doug loves them, then again, he loves all Gibson's. I've never actually tried one, so I can't comment.
Looks really nice. It does seem a bit overpriced but I wouldnt know about Gibsons anyway.
oh, those things are god awful ugly. i cant say wether or not they play good or even sound good but i think the looks of those things would sway any buyers desicioin.
The looks DID sway my decision:
I don't know who the big "star" is that is playing these now. I am guessing there must be someone because about a year ago you could get one of these in great shape for around $500
Krist Novoselic used to play one back when Nirvana was still around.
yeah, i agree
I love it. Don't let it get away.
That is sweet! I would rather have the butterscotch natural, but I would take that one.
The only reason that I can think of that the bass is a little high is because it looks to be in very good shape, for a 24 year old instrument.
Here is a butterscotch, but it's kind of beat up. But I would take any of them, as long as the preamp works, and the neck has never been repaired. Did I mention that they are the best sounding heavy rock bass ever made?
Why doesn't Gibson make cool basses like that anymore?......aside from the fact they didn't sell. I really don't like the look of les paul basses, it seems like such a sacrelige to me.
A store near me had an RD Artist on their website that was a really nice looking lighter sunburst with cream binding (I think I remember reading that this was a more rare color scheme). It was selling for 650 or so and looked nice in the picture. I got out to the store as soon as I could only to find it had been sold 2 days earlier. I would've loved to have been able to play that bass.
Talk about ugly ...
Still, I'd take that over a BC Rich any day.
Ain't that the truth! You guys may not like how the RD looks, but if you ever heard one, you would understand what we are on about!
