RBM-1 (Reb Beach) Black/Gold

To make a long story short. After I moved about 15 years ago, I forgot I had this guitar. Its an RBM-1 Black and gold. Everything is original. Over-all it's in good shape. I cleaned it up and noticed there was a small dent on the front (not chipped) and another on the back as well. Some of the gold on the hardware looks to be a little worn off as well. The middle P/U works, but strangely when you select it, it's not distorted, but is a clean sound maybe its just needs cleaning or a wired is corroded. Other than that plays great.

Anyone know the values of these things nowadays? I am probably going to sell it, and use the money towards a Fender YJM Strat.

There is one in my area that has been on craigslist for about 4 months now for 750.00 and its clean. I looked at it, but the neck reminds me of a JS, so I passed.

I paid $900 for mine back a few years ago, and it's mint with paper on the cavitites and case candy, and I guess I would be lucky to get that for it nowadays.

Re: RBM-1 (Reb Beach) Black/Gold

For some reason, I feel like the black/gold ones don't fetch as much as the original '91's. You could probably get $600ish for it. I'm going to be selling my black '91 soon and am looking to get a bit more than that.

They're crap!

I'll take it off your hands for $100. And that's ONLY because I feel sorry for you!
