Good Use For JEM555 - Other than burning (sorry guys)

I was just thinking, if someone was looking for a project to do and price wasn't an object, think of this:

The JEM555 is pretty much useless Trem-wise because of the TRS, so why not spend a whole wack of money and add one of these? *I think that would kick major ass!

I think that doesn't work with Floyd like guitars

Specs: Can be retrofitted to any Gibson Les Paul, * Fender Telecaster, * *or Fender Stratocaster

But there's always a way

"We also offer the option allowing you to supply your own guitar for custom installation.

hey i got an idea.... why don't you try sending a hard-tail ibanez (like an RG) so you can the 24-fret ibanez shredder guitar feel with one of those amazing transperformance thingies... :biggrin:

from their FAQs: "What does the Performer system cost?
The cost to retrofit your guitar is $3,250"

a bit more than I'd pay to mod a 555!
