JEM 555 BK ???

Hey everyone,

Can anyone help me determine if this is legit just by the pics? Everything seems right to me. I just want to make absolutely sure and figured this would be the best place to ask. Thanks for any help guys!

Seems legit enough, but it's still just a 555, for which $600 shipped is a little much. Save a bit more money and get a better, Japanese-made Ibanez of some kind. I'm sure you can find one much more local than South Korea as well, which will save on shipping charges.

actually, the edge pro 2 is one of the worst (if not the worst) trems ibanez made. they stopped using them cause they were so bad i think.

It was sobstituted by edge III due to the copyright duties pending on it , Floyd Rose had copyrights on low-profile trem so Ibanez changed the low profiled edge pro II with the whale tail edge III.

Yeah this was for a friend of mine. Turns out the 555 isn't in his future after all. I hope he finds something better as he hasn't had a guitar in a while now. Blessing in disguise!
