Lovies Guitars is offering up this gorgeous 2009 Gibson RD Standard in Trans Amber! This guitar is amazing! It’s what we call “New Old Stock” which just basically means that Gibson found it in the back of the warehouse, whether it didn’t sell or they forgot about it, they sold it to vendors and shops and so it’s in brand new condition it just doesn’t come with a warranty. These were great years for Gibson, the shear quality and feel of the guitars were out of this world! You’re essentially getting a brand new guitar for the price of a used! See many detailed photos included!

Now Gibson USA reintroduces the Gibson RD™ Standard. Loaded with the look, feel and sound of the original RD, this guitar is still entirely in step with the 21st Century, and proves just how far ahead of its time it was on its arrival nearly 35 years ago.
As entirely fresh as its styling may be, the Gibson RD™ Standard starts with one of Gibson’s most traditional tonewoods as the cornerstone of its design. A solid mahogany body is joined to a glued-in quarter-sawn mahogany neck that is carved to a supremely comfortable rounded ’50s profile. Its grade-A rosewood fingerboard carries 22 medium-jumbo frets, and it has a 12-inch radius for Gibson’s famous choke-free bending. Add a PLEK-cut Corian nut and 17-degree back-angled headstock for optimum resonance and sustain, and you’ve got a sweet, rich, multi-textured tone machine that is perfect for a wide range of genres and playing styles. The entire package looks great, too, in your choice of high-gloss Trans Amber or Ebony Black finish, with a three-ply black/white/black pickguard that offers a subtle look back toward its Gibson predecessors of the ’60s.
To ram it all through your amp of choice, Gibson USA includes a pair of classic PAF-styled Burstbucker Pro pickups, both made with genuine Alnico V magnets. The Burstbucker Pro in the neck position yields full-throated voices with plenty of warmth but no shortage of clarity, while the slightly hotter Burstbucker Pro in the bridge gives you all the power and punch necessary for everything from crunchy power chords to singing leads. The classic pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provides a solid anchor with uncompromising adjustability for precise intonation and the unparalleled sustain for which these components are famous. At the other end, a set of authentic Grover™ kidney button tuners provide efficient performance and outstanding tuning stability.
