  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I recently managed to get a 2004 555 with an Ibanez hardcase (did they come with one new?) it is a wooden one not the classic moulded plastic version with a metal plaque on it with an Ibanez marketing slogan on it, looks like an old W200C variant. A few days later (hello credit card!) I...

    Hi. I am looking for a used Edge of some sort.

    Here is a (probably silly) question about JEM paint: On the 7VWH it has been claimed Ibanez use a special white paint that is highly UV resistant so the guitar does not turn a hideous uneven cream colour over time. Is this the same of the old JEM Jr 555? (Before the cheap 333 renamed as the...

    This black Jem 555 has a Jem 10th Pickguard. I couldn't find any 555 with this pickguard, I did find a white '96 555 with a regular pearloid pickguard. If the serial numbers for the 555s start with the last digit of the year, this is actually a '98...

    Hi - I have a 2015 Jem Jr that I bought for the sake of modding. I now have Evos DP158 and DP159 installed instead of the stock pickups - a Dimarzio 5 way switch and push pull pots by way of electronics. The tuners were replaced by Graph Tech Ratios. Now, I have a spare EDGE bridge in my drawer...

    Hey guys, so I recently inherited an Ibanez Jem 555 from my step dad. He doesn't play, and doesn't really know anything about guitars. I'll admit I don't know anything about dating an Ibanez. I did some initial searching, but can't seem to find anything about my serial number. Pretty positive...

    Hello all, this is my first post in a few years . . . I was very sadly without a JEM or RG for a long time, but I'm back! I enjoy building & tinkering with JEM's and RG's for my own personal amusement and pleasure. I recently purchased a 555 neck on E*** and I think I've been sold a...

    Jem 555 Natural Relic Hello everybody! Here's my modded '95 Jem 555WH that some years ago I refinished in a blue/green/black sunburst: After some years the finish started to fade and the colour was no more similar to that on day one. After stripping the finish I decided to leave it natural...

    Hi! I recently got my JEM 555 repaired (the wood had cracked on both sides inside the tremolo cavity, so the whole trem unit got pulled up). While at it, I decided I might as well put a decent trem on it, and since I like gold hardware on white guitars, I went for all gold hardware. This forum...

    I found a used MIK 555 today for about 500 USD. I was wondering what everyone thought of it. I'm not a fan of MIK stuff (I'd prefer a MIJ 70V even with the cost) but I am curious about the 555. Overall, how's the quality of the wood and the overall quality of the guitar itself?
  11. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I bought a JEM 555. I have an (old) RG and S series, and fancied something new. I played it against a Fender Deluxe Strat. That's a gorgeous guitar too but ultimately I had to go with what made me smile when playing it... Now, I also tried a JEM 505. To me, I preferred the action and sound...

    Hi guys, I've been experiencing some problems with my JEM555 recently. My bridge seems to be sitting a lot closer to the scratchplate, which is bending the scratchplate when it plays, also at the same time it's struggling to stay in tune and i'm not getting very good sustain as i usually...

    Hey, guys, I have a Jem555 lying around with a broken trem so as soon as I get that fixed, I'm going to get my gf to paint the white body on my Jem so I have a few questions - I want the design to go on top of the already white body so will I have to sand off the laquer on the body first...

    Hi, I'm new here guys, hope you can help! The Floyd Rose on my Jem 555 (I got it in about 1999/2000) is doing that thing where it moves loosely a tiny bit and it puts the guitar out of tune. I've heard from a couple of people that when it does this it's basically useless, so I need a new one...
