The RBM10 is a Reb Beach series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1994. It is a signature model of American guitarist Reb Beach, who is best known for his work in the melodic rock band Winger. The RBM10 was made in Korea by Cort. It replaced the RBM1.

The RBM body style is the second unique body shape used by Beach after the modified Explorer styled WRB3 model. The body, which was designed by Reb Beach himself, features a deep cutaway at the back of the body all the way to the tremolo. It is also known as Voyager style.

The RBM10 features a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a humbucker at the bridge and single coil-sized humbuckers in the middle and neck positions and a double locking tremolo bridge. For 1994, the tremolo was the Lo-TRS; for 1995 it was replaced by the Lo-TRS II. Also for 1995 came a version with a cedar body with a stained oil finish.

The RBM100 is a more expensive version which is made in Japan.

The RBM10 was discontinued along with the rest of the Reb Beach signature models after 1995.
