Description The guitar is immediately different from any SG you've ever seen. It has a large plasic covering RD-Artist Electronics. Two knobs for pickup volumes, and an active bass and treble control in place of traditional tones. Had a pretty pearloid leaf on the headstock, and standard white dot inllays on the fret board. All chrome hardware and Tuners. Only other identifynig mark MAY included loss and reset of headstock and/or neck. I had mine carved to be much lighter and thinner, all the while knowing the risk of breakage and the level of care necessary to keep it pristine.
Case Description Case was non original Gibson EB (SG shaped) bass. Instrument fit well as I recall. Also real easy to find in a crowded room.
