Re: 555

Cool, congrats. My only thing is that they're made in Korea and not Japan, I still like them though and I have always wanted one just to have. I like the black 555s with the pearloid pickguards. I like white alot (my UV7PWH is my favorite guitar) but i'd rather get a 7VWH than a white 555. Still, the 555s are pretty cool and they aren't that expensive. Post up some pics when you get it.

Re: 555

It's not as bad as some claim, the only thing is it's still pricy for it's standard

Re: 555

I have a 555, and I like it quite a bit. I wish the tremolo arm was either the plug-in type or a Strat screw-in type, but otherwise it's a great guitar. I liked your YouTube video.
