This is one of the early long scale ones.These guitars and basses each featured a longer scale than other Gibsons, innovative active electronics (developed by Moog), and a unique offset body style. The RD Custom used an all maple body. Have the late seventies funky styling and produce killer modern tones,  constructed from solid maple. It has tons of sustain and heavenly tone. The Moog electronics work well in this guitar. You can get a phase sound and a compressor.

Introduced in 1977, original RD Series development involving Gibson designers, luthiers, craftsmen, musicians and the electronic ingenuity available only from the technicians of Moog, was targeted at meeting the needs of the more sophisticated rock and country players looking to maximize their capabilities as musicians. To meet the needs of players looking for tonalities previously not available commercially. To offer "dynamic touch" control, never before available in a guitar. To offer "customized" features in power and frequency capabilities. The first Gibson solid body development effort to incorporate a 25" scale length with size, shape and density of materials chosen for their brightness, brilliance, sustain and comfort characteristics.
Although the Custom had active electronics, it did not actually have the same Moog expansion and compression circuitry of the Artist, but did have the switchable bright mode.
