Jem 555 replacement model......... - I found it in Hong Kong

remember the PGM 3 I talked about?
http://jemsiteforum.com/board/topic....=803&replies=1

Today I went to the shop again I realized that I had overlooked the "new Jem" last time
It is the "new" Jem Jr. (isn't that the 555 is called Jr too?)
On the back of the head stock, it is written "Jem Jr WH" (not Jem555), made in Korea....

It is an even lower end model than the 555
The shop has both the black and the white model there.

It is actually an RG with monkey grip, lion claw, dot inlay, Ibanez Pickups, Lo-Trs trem, and "Jem Jr." written on the headstock (the neck is Wizard II I think)

to be exact, it is just a Jem 555 minus the Evolution pickups, vine inlay, pearloid pickguard..

It is selling for HK$3000, which is about US$380

I don't think anyone is going to add this "new jem" to their collection, right?

The 333 was supposed to be a Chinese made guitar for the budget Asian market. Don't know why it says made in Korea.

Because it's an even bigger mistake than the 555 was. Maybe Hoshino Gaki is embarrased enough to not even include it on the .jp site!

I've searched Yahoo! China, Hong Kong, and Korea and I can't find jack...

Does anyone have a link or a pic of this JEM? I would love to see it... although I'd probably be disgusted when I finally do look at it... :biggrin:

:rotf: if *you* were in charge at Ibanez public relations... would *you* want info on a JEM333 (ie. 555 downgrade model) made known to the public :biggrin: ...glen

I don't know if the one I saw is the 333 or not
but I am sure that it was only written "Jem Jr" in the front of the headstock and "Jem Jr Wh" "Made in Korea" on the back of the headstock


anyway, I'm not interested in it
