The spacey-looking RD Standard electric guitar was named after Gibson's Research and Development team, and designed to keep up with the growing popularity of synthesizers in the late '70s. This rare bird is back, with a double cut mahogany solid body, stop tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, dot inlays, chrome parts, and the super cool Silverburst finish.
The RD reissue guitar also sports 2 Dirty Fingers humbucker pickups. These Gibson pickups are extreme-output units designed for more of everything. They produce much more clarity and way more volume than a traditional humbucker with an incredibly aggressive, wide response. The Dirty Fingers pickups are wax-potted to eliminate unwanted microphonic feedback. This is a limited run of only 400 RD guitars from Gibson.

i have been an active touring musician for about 4 years. i just bought the gibson rd silverburst reissue, and i couldnt be happier. i put it right up there with my les paul custom. it sounds just like adam jones [of tool]. the dirtyfingers pickups give you unlimited sustain with perfect attack and clarity [when distorted] and a really unique clear tone on the clean channel [if you have good enough technique] the setup on this guitar was just about perfect as well. for the money the look and the tone, this guitar has no equal. its the perfect add to any serious musicians store of guitars, [especially if you own a les paul custom]
I just got my RD yesterday and I love it. I have had many Gibsons, but never with the DIRTY FINGERS pickups. I love this set up. It is so "brown" or slabby when in the bridge position, perfect for hard rock or metal. Then in the neck position, I played it clean and was doodling some Floyd, and the tone was a dead ringer for a strat. It truly is the best of both worlds.
