    So I just got traded a 2007 black 555, it's clean and straight but has been raped and pillaged of its Dimarzios and hardware, it's all brand new Jem Jr junk as far as I can tell, the excrescent trem is a particular lowlight, however it was very cheap and a quick raid of my parts bins should get...

    This is a Jem 555BK, Korea 1995. When I picked this up, it had a very worn Ibanez Lo TRS II on it. The knife edges were worn so bad, it was impossible to repair. I've always used Floyd Rose's since the 1980's, so I have this 'implicit bias' towards them - so I decided to replace it with a...

    Listing a couple of guitars for my brother (Ken from Unearth). The first is a J Custom RG8427F BX.

    I'm haveing trouble levelling my edge pro 2 on my 555. I don't think there is enough space in the back cavity as I cant pull the guitar trem level, it just hits the back. I'll leave a link to some photos. Hopefully someone can figure out this issue and as i'm starting to think I have a fake jem.

    I cracked my Jem 555 pick-guard and have been looking for a replacement online - with zero luck. I ended up buying a few online that didn't fit well. Any suggestions? 1) Would a Korean RG guitar pick-guard fit the Jem 555? 2) Would a MIJ RG550 pick-guard fit? Which one might be better? or...

    Ok I couldnt live with the unstable edge 3 any longer...So, I finally broke down and paid $300+ on a German made Schaller Locking Tremolo. I replaced the edge 3 bushings/studs, only to realize that now, the E strings dont quite line up like they should! The posts were 74mm for each Tremolo but...

    Hi there, Ive owned a Jem 555 for like 2 years now and although I love my Jem, even after I've tuned and intonated my guitar, if I do a couple of little dives, she goes out of tune. I was thinking on swapping out the Edge 3 thats in it for either an Edge Pro or an OFR. However, even though Ive...
