is the RBII just a newer version or are there differences?
From what I've seen, there are usually some sort of upgrades when GK does that in thier product line. What the specific differences there are, between the 1001 & 1001 II, I couldnt tell you.
The 1001RB-II has 700 watts instead of 540 watts and has a few reliability fixes.
it's also supposedly voiced a little differently, for a slightly warmer sound and more low end... and it's cosmetically different to, if looks matter
THE GK 1001RB II DOESN'T BLOW UP
I thought it was the mark I that had all the reliability issues. I heard the mark II only had one bad batch.
That's what he was saying. The II has some reliability fixes over the I. Though, to be truthful, my MK I has had NO issues whatsoever. I have broken knobs off accidentally, and fixing it was super easy. Also, GK's customer service was very easy to deal with! One thing, though, the newer GK's control potentiometers have a bracket that you have to solder along with it, which gives it a more stable connection to the circuit board. If you replace a pot on an older one, you have to cut this part off.
