    I'm working on my old JEM555 which was nicely set up last year by Iron Maiden's guitar tech and playing really well. Tremolo arm on Lo-TRS 2 is loose though, it's the one with a screw-down sleeve which isn't very good and basically knackered. I'm thinking of replacing it and the Gotoh 1996T came...

    Hi there guys, I was wondering if it's worth to upgrade my infamous Jem555 to a 70V-SFGreen. They sound completely different and I really prefered the SFG, but the built quality was better on my 555. However, I tought I could updgrade my 555 instead with an edge pro and dimarzio potentiometers...

    I'm not happy with the tuning stability of the original trem supplied with this guitar so I plan to upgrade to a Gotoh (spec attached - hopefully). One question/ concern has crossed my mind however; will the lions claw allow for serious pull up of the whammy bar (~5th) or will the extra length...

    Hi guys, Just picked up a JEM555 for a dirty price off of ebay. I've noticed the edge bridge has a lot of play in the trem arm compared to newer models (I'm basing this on 2 rg350s i've owned). I've seen you can buy proper bushes from ibanez, as well as other people online recommended using...

    Hi I had an old jem555 that i was not using (having my japanese uv777p rg550 and rg570) so i've been upgrading it with new pickups, tremolo and a maple neck. I want to have it painted with a nice painting (something like this : http://www.buyfromchucks.com/images/products/large/j7318-whole.jpg...

    I've been posting updates on my pimped out JEM555 THREAD and I'm to the point where I need to attach the ET custom neck but am running into problems. 1) The heel of the neck is VERY snug in the pocket of the JEM body. So much so that the one edge of the pocket is cracking under the strain...

    Hey, im not thinking of buying a guitar with this tremolo system, but im really intrigued as to what actually makes this tremolo so bad? as in why does it not stay in tune, is it the materials its made out of? (im only going by what people have said, i have never tried a guitar with this bridge...

    I had this guitar up for sale a long time ago but decided not to sell it. This started as a stock black Jem555. I had it stripped down and painted eggshell flat black with matching headstock. The headstock had a chrome decal with the "JEM" logo. The guitar comes with the string tree, locking...

  17. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    A while ago I saw a thread on here with someone asking if they should buy a JEM555 or save up more and get a JEM7V. Pretty much everyone said to save up and get (and I quote) "a real JEM7V". That was said by a lot of people. I was just recently wondering: If the JEM555 isn't a real JEM, and...

    Am I alone in thinking it wouldn't be so bad to have a moderately priced JEM model that is somewhere between an RG/555 and a 777?

    Is the build quality of the JEM7 or 77's better than the JEM555? I have been playing a Jackson Dinky, and I got a JEM555 for a good price. I love the shape of the neck, playability, and overall looks of the guitar, but my Jackson just seems to be more "solid" of a guitar. The trem is...
