Gibson RD Artist How many was made ? what it worth ?

Do any one know how many RD Artist was made ? the one with built in compressor ?? and what they are selling for now day ??

Are these collector guitar ?? thanks for all input

Re: Gibson RD Artist How many was made ? what it worth ?

Hello: I have two rd artist guitars. The RD Artist, Les Paul. Only 500 were made in the early 80's. I also have the RD Artist, designed by Dr. Robert Moog, Tobacco Burst.

Re: Gibson RD Artist How many was made ? what it worth ?

All in all, 2500 was manufactured.....

Re: Gibson RD Artist How many was made ? what it worth ?

If it's mint condition it could fetch up to US$1000, more if you sell it in England. I'm not sure how many they made, but they were only manufactured for 2 years. They are still quite common. so not quite a collector's item yet, unless it belonged to someone famous.
Do you have one? I have two and I restore them. If you have one you'd be willing to sell let me know.

Gibson RD Artist 78 Guitar

Have this guitar. Anybody there who has a Manual or s.th. like that; want to to know more 'bout the electronics (compressor ??)

Re: Gibson RD Artist 78 Guitar

: Have this guitar. Anybody there who has a Manual or s.th. like that; want to to know more 'bout the electronics (compressor ??)

Right, here goes!

There is a three way switch which selects the pickups. OK. There is another three-way which does nothing in the centre position. In the pointing BACK position (at the bum of the gtr) it is a treble boost. Very sharp and toppy. Pointing FORWARDS at the head of the gtr, it is strange. The NECK pickup is compressed, the notes have long sustain, chords are quieter, single notes fuller. The BRIDGE pickup is 'expanded' like a squelch on a radio. Signal to moise improves, sustain is less, the sound is more percussive. Both pickups TOGETHER there is a sharp percussive attack, from the bridge pickup, followed by a smooth swell as the neck pickup takes over. It's a bit disconcerting and like the housefly has no known practical use. The RD Artist was to be Gibson's flagship model but the music industry was underwhelmed and it failed. Dr Moog of the famous synthesiser is reputed to have helped design it. They's have been better off asking Professor Les Paul IMHO.

I still love mine tho.

Re: Gibson RD Artist 78 Guitar

I have this guitar since 1980 I think. But I did'nt play it for about ten years. I'm pretty sure that I have a complete description of the guitar and all the (Moog)electronics.
Please let me know if youre still intrested. (I have to find the papers)

Re: Gibson RD Artist 78 Guitar

I had this guitar for about five years, sold it about ten years ago. Excellent necks on those. I never had a manual, but checking up on them over the years, I discovered that the two effects are a compressor and a treble booster. Hope this helps!

Gibson EB 750

Does anyone out there know ANYTHING about these beasts???? They have a big semi-acoustic single cut away jazz guitar sytle body in book- matched flame maple, F sound holes, ebony board, Bartolini active humbuckers, gold hardware, and MASSIVE "Elvis on tour in the 50's" pimp style cases (oddly enough, they were made around 1990). I saw one about three years ago in Andy's in Demark St. (London)and it was £1850($3000+)and I wanted it, but couldn't afford it (sigh). So, I had to leave it...I searched online and found ONE in Santa Rosa ($3500)....ANYWAY, the years flew by and I re-found the same EB-750 for sale for £1250 in "The Gallery-Bass Merchant" (The COOLEST bass shop in the WORLD!)...so, that was that - I bought it..I have still found nothing about it other than the usual Gibson thing where they tell you back whet you have just told them....oh, and that the one in Santa Rosa was bought by the bassist in "Hole" - I would finish by saying that they are FANTASTIC and everyone loves it ( including my girlfrind amazingly enough...)
SO PLEASE...ask your friends and relatives, search you garages, attics and local libraries. All help gratefully received

Thanks

Ampeg speakers

What kind of speakers do Ampeg use in their 4x10 cabinents? Do they make their own, or use celestions or eminence? Any info appreciated.

Re: Ampeg speakers

My box ( model V4, 4x12", 100W 8 Ohms )has CTS speakers, ceramic type and they sound great. I have played the head with Marshall ( Slash signature) box and with JBL loudspeakers from a Fender Twin Reverb but the CTS sound much better.
I also would like to get more info on these speakers as the CTS www has not info. Hope this is of assistance.

I just sold a 73 Gibson L9 Ripper Blond on Blond with no case last year for $700. It was in great condition with the bridge cover and all. I have to say that such guitars sell a little high here in Nashville so keep that in mind. I wish I had that bass back.
