Note Ibanez' designated "JEM Jr".

Only Lefty model JEM available. Too bad it's a 555

JEM555 Note - Ibanez' designated "JEM Jr". Prior to January, 1997 the 555s had "JEM Jr." inscripted on the headstock. These have the All-Access Neck Joint & Evolution pickups. Author's suggestion - avoid these and buy a used JEM7 series instead!

While the 555 has been CANCELLED in the USA in 2000 mostly due to poor sales and horrible feedback, the 555 has been since reintroduced in many areas where JEM7s are higher priced in relative terms vs USA pricing.
