Re: wtf i never seen these before
mi2tom, I have a JEM JR (JEM333, MIK) and I gotta tell you, she plays as great as a RG350. My brother has a RG350EX and they are both great. Let's say that the JEM333 is closer to a RG than a JEM. Overall, it's a great guitar. A change of pups, bridge and machine heads, and you got yourserlf a more than decent guitar. As far as pricing issue, at least here in Argentina, is not that expensive compared to a RG350. I think the difference is a $100 or less. And, to be honest, I rather get a JEM333 than a JEM555.
