Vertical switch model. Has a couple of pots that are just a little scratchy, not much at all. One knob is missing the gray cover. I use this amp every week and have no troubles with it. Looking to trade for a 700rb-II.
Not the seller, but to me, the 800rb might be a little more "sterile" and with a tad less low end when flat, but they are both great flavours in the same range. It comes down to preferences and features.

To my ears, the 800 breaks up a little more, and easier. I can get similar tones, but the 800 seems to hang out more so in the mid range. I've never played through a 700, but have owned a 1001 previously.
