Re: Used Jem 555 WH

IMO- anything more than the price of a good used RG570 or RG550 is just a waste of money. The JEM555 is inferior in quality to either of those guitars. Why would you pay $700 for an RG450 with a monkey grip cut into it? It's a crap neck and crap bridge.

I'd suggest you spend $300-$350 on a solid used RG570 or RG550 (I got my RG550BK for $315 from a Jemsiter) and spend the other $400 towards a good amp or effects.

Don't buy it just because it looks like a JEM... it's not a real JEM.

+1 , anyway the jem 555 isn't that bad but you can get a better guitar like the 550 for a bit cheaper than 700usd
