I bought a Jem 555BK yesterday - i have some questions about

Yesterday i bought a Jem 555BK, it was really in the max of my budget, i tried some other guitars, including some JS models, but i really liked this one a whole lot better than the rest.
I read some stuff on this forum about the Lo trs II bridge, i know its inferior to the lo pro, so im going to replace it at some point, but at the moment, i dont really have to, cause i dont really use the trem.

Now how is the Jem 555 compared to other Jems, if you dont take in account the trem?
Will my jem 555 be comparable to superior jems when i replace the trem with a lo pro?
Does this lo trs trem have an influence on the guitar (sound) even if i dont use it?

Thx in advance

PS. maybe it seems im not that enthousiastic about my guitar, with all these questions, but i assure you, im sooo happy i opted for the jem instead of any other guitar!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your axe. I don't think people here are going to answer your question though. It's been discussed over and over and over and over...try searching the old threads...just click on search and enter jem555 or whatever. I don't have a jr. nor a guitar with the lo-trs, I only know the big jems. :thumbsup:
