I bought a JEM 555
. I have an (old) RG and S series, and fancied something new.
I played it against a Fender Deluxe Strat. That's a gorgeous guitar too but ultimately I had to go with what made me smile when playing it...
Now, I also tried a JEM 505. To me, I preferred the action and sound of the 555. Sound makes sense due to the pick-ups, I see, from reading on here. Although I was surprised to see the 505 getting a fair few negative comments.
Do these comments still apply to the 2011-2012 505s?
