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.
