Help with my guitar. What is it?
Hi. I have been reading about Jem's and I have some questions. I have a white JEM555. Now it's really weird, because I have NEVER seen a picture of this guitar anywhere, or seen one in stores. The one I have is totally different from any other JEM 555's I have seen. First of all, the pick gaurd is totally white, and it's a slightly lighter white than the paint on the body. I always see the silver/white looking design on the 555 pickguards. Well, mine is flat white. Second of all, the pickups I have are weird. The middle pickup looks normal, but the 2 humbuckers on it are different than any 555 I have seen. They dont have the little silver dots going across them. All it is, is these little small dots on them, without the silver dots. Looks like little holes in it where the silver dot things are supposed to be. Did I mention that all the pickups are black, and not white like they are supposed to be? Third of all, the tremelo on it is black also. It's not supposed to have that either. It's supposedto be silver. But it is an ibanez floyd rose. Fourth of all, the knobs on it arent like any 555's I have seen either. The knobs are black/clear and are really big unlike the ones i have seen on other 555's. They have these little rubber circle things that go on the very top of them so you can have more grip I think. And there's probably a lot more to my guitar. But anyway, the guy I bought it from said it is worth $1200. And I bought it from him for $400. Now I have no idea what kind of guitar this is, because it isnt like ANY jem555 I have ever seen. On the back of the head, it says Jem555 and the serial is C426263. Made in Korea. Can anyone help me out here to try and figure out what exactly my guitar is? I have heard something about a "Jem JR" guitar, could this possibly be one? One the front of the head it says "JEM" in cursive and not jem jr. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
By the way: This guitar is horrible. It has so many problems I cant even list them all here.
