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

Re: RMB1 vs 2? how can I tell?

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)
