The Official Whine About the 505 Thread

Since the original 505 thread turned into a whinefest, I thought I would start a separate thread specifically for that complete with a poll.
Please post redundant complaints here.
Enjoy

I have no problems with the 505 at all. In fact I want one.
It will be expensive though (but thats just because I live in Australia, not Ibanez's fault)

I think I set it so you can choose as many reasons as you want.

We're barely into the new year and already have a strong contender for "Best Thread of 2010".

Well, I guess I read the question as: "name the only thing wrong with the 505".

seriously apart from the price, it is good. Probably the first Jem I have wanted to by new in a long time.

WAAAH I don't think it's over priced, it's like a 1550 with edge, which can only be good!

The Jem 505 is pure win in my books. It's the budget Jem that the 555 should've been.

Re: The Official Whine About the 505 Thread

Come on guys, there's a 505 thread for the non whiners elsewhere.
Personally I think the thing is great, and I'm not a fan of super strats at all, but for what it is, it's great. The other thread just had too much crying for my taste so I started this so people can whine here.

Re: The Official Whine About the 505 Thread

to me, the white one has perfect specs.
perfect body, neck, hardware, pickups and maple.
to make it more pimped i'd promptly add the MOP pyramids.
Even the price tag sounds correct to me, since the VWH is now priced +3400 usd.

For real! If anyone deserves the right to complain it's our friends in Oz, the UK, and anywhere else where you get nailed with a high VAT or nasty import tariff!

Is it okay to complain about taxes on this thread elcid?
