    About the Original RD Artist Bass


    Collectors or fans of Krist Novoselic may recognize this unique bass from 1978. The RD Artist electric bass designed in collaboration with Bob Moog and John Entwhistle (though he soon backed out of the project) with the idea of creating an instrument around a specific musical purpose. Incorporating Moog’s unique versions of an expander and compressor, the Artist can give extra swell-like sustain in the neck position, and sharp transient attack in the bridge, with an added bright mode option. Many performers took to this versatile bass, and it was actually bestselling bass in ’78 and ’79.


    However it was only available from 1977 to 1981, so it is hard to get your hands on one of these in working condition. Well you’ve come to the right place, because the Zoo happens to have recently acquired this vintage piece in very good condition for its age. There is just some marking on the guard and pickup cover and minor buckle rash on the back. The body and neck look excellent. There is also some oxidation on the tuners.

    Features on this bass include a maple body, a 3-piece set maple neck with a 24 ¾” scale maple fretboard, Schaller BM tuners, a 3-point chrome bridge, and Mark V humbuckers. Active Bass and Treble controls give you a wide range of tonal sculpting. There’s a 3-way pickup switch, as well as a 3-way mini-toggle which controls the patented electronics. The passive mode bypasses the electronic effects. A compressor/expander mode compresses the neck signal and expands the bridge. When used with both pickups selected, both effects run simultaneously. Finally there is a bright mode which does what you’d expect. Remember that there aren't many of these basses around so if you want it, come check it out while you can.
