RE: JEM505 Shout Out?

I've seen some mixed reviews and feedback on the 505 - what it is, what it isn't and what it should/could be.

Any 505 owners have feedback after owning/playing theirs for a bit of time?

Thanks in advance,

Re: JEM505 Shout Out?

I love mine. Basically it's an RG550 with the Jem carve neck (without the 4 fret scallop) and the handle. The neck is to die for. I put Bartolinis in mine, but it is definitely a keeper. I believe I've had it about 3 or 4 years, but I have kids so my memory is completely shot I've had it a while though.

Re: JEM505 Shout Out?

Hopefully not too much of a necro. I'm in the same boat as Jim, have mine about 4 -5 years. It's my go to axe, great neck, I stuck in an Evo and a Nailbomb (although the factory pups weren't horrendous). It just feels great and I have absolutely no complaints.
