Re: Jem 555??

To be honest any RG with the Wizard neck and Edge or Lo Pro Edge such as the 5xx series or the new RG's in the Prestige line, will be better than the Jem 555. Pretty much as good as a Jem 77 or 7 actually.

The 555 should never have been made, in my and I suspect many other peoples opinion.
