Parts Lists

Unfortunately Gibson no longer stock spare parts for RD series guitars, especially the complicated electronics, however parts do crop up on auction websites occasionally. If you are missing bridge parts / machine heads, replacements should be relatively easy to find. Working Moog boards, on the other hand are much harder to get hold of.
