US 985$ Looking at some examples available here (on ebay, Reverb, etc.) seems to be a reasonable ask, assuming this is is truly in "great" condition. Since this is an offer, you may be able to bargain/negotiate a bit lower.

I purchased mine here last year in a private sale for more than that. That price sounds very reasonable. depending on condition. Mine was mint.

If you haven't had a chance to actually play it, you may want to look into the issues the RK-R80s had with binding delamination and the 1st string sliding off the edge of the fretboard.

These are fixable issues, I had one and the binding repair is a simple glue fix. The 1st string sliding off the edge was only an issue with the early ones, and it can be fixed with some nut adjustments.

But it's good to have a full understanding of what you're buying.
