Jem 555 2003 model in Italy

I don't know if this can interest you, but saturday I had the opportunity to see the new Ibanez catalog and there is a Jem555 equipped with the EdgePro II, but no prestige neck.


For the admins: before posting I did a search but I found nothing.

... strange indeed, at the frankfurt fair there was definetly no 555 and I'd think that could be considered at least a european fair. Also they gave away catalogues at the fair that included the Jem7FP, which to my knowledge is only continue being sold in Japan. But nothing about an italian555

so maybe this planet is not saved from the 555 yet?

Well the 77FP is definately in the 2003 european catalog.
I went to Rose Morris (Denmark Street) on Saturday and they said that they have one on order but Headstock(UK distributor) couldn't tell them when exactly it will get there.

The 555 is now officially less crap.

If they turn up in Oz I'd definitely get one.

Then I'd mail the neck to LGM.
