What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gibson RD Artist 40th Anniversary 2018 Electric Guitar is a stunning reissue of the RD Artist Gibson model with modern improvements.
At Haworth Guitars, we find that the mahogany body design feels comfortable and well-balanced on the 2018 Gibson RD Artist Guitar while the rounded mahogany neck fills the playing hand nicely.
The dual GEM active humbucker pickups produce a big high-output sound on the Gibson 2018 RD Artist while the gold hardware and Grover machine heads add a touch of class and prestige.
What Gibson has to say:
Reintroducing a modern design classic of the late '70s, the special edition RD Artist 40th Anniversary guitar delivers radical looks with versatile tones.
The unique RD body style in solid mahogany complements a mahogany neck with rounded profile and an exotic torrefied granadillo fingerboard, graced with the Gibson historic script logo on the headstock, gold Grover tuners, Tune-o-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece.
A pair of GEM active pickups delivers improved output and extreme tonal versatility.
