1978 Gibson RD Artist bass switch details

1978 Gibson RD Artist bass
switch details

The RD Artist bass controls are not straightforward. The top switch - or trick switch, has three positions: compression/expansion, neutral and bright/lead mode. The switch below is the pickup selector. The compression only affects the neck pickup, whilst expansion only affects the bridge pickup. You can read more about the controls in the original Gibson literature: RD users manual.
