Look at my 555 and be honest please (pics inside)!!!

Hi all. As a 555 owner I'm way disappointed of all that criticism about the model I own from 1996. it never gave me problems and now I'm sure it looks better than some other jem models of a higher price...

erm honestly..............its ok to my eyes, its not realy my things but the pick guard is kinda cool.

i do however dislike he orange tone pot and switch tip.

over all its ok.

but the real question and the only thing that matters realy is wether u like it.

It's got a cool pickguard (I kinda like the orange pot - gives it a bit of contrast) but I still hate that half-vine neck and I don't like TRS bridges.

At the end of the day, if you like it, that's all that matters.
