700 sounds a bit high.. I have seen sell on the bay for $450-$550 depending on the condition...

I have the RBM10OL... Which is I like alot even though it is a MIK guitar..

The one in question looks like an RBM100, which is the same as the RBM1 - changed name in 1994. Pickup mounting ring and knob is most likely changed, never seen anything else than gold for this model.

Save up and get the koa model.

The RBM1 is an awesome workhorse
I own 2 (3 in the past)
Look at the catalogs to see they were all-black, then with gold hardware (MIJ 1991-1992)

If the rusty aspect of the tremolo is the only wear, go for it
(I won't tell you to check dings, cracks, fretwear....)

It has a particular neck profile (slightly rounder that the Wiz profile, and very comfy to me)

Yeah. The whole reb beach thing confuses the piss out of me, mostly due to the higher grade components used. The 2 has a flamed koa top, no? I just don't understand thee difference o.O

Illl see if he will come down at all
