Okay, If i buy a RG 550 preferably japanese, then fit it with evo pups, will it be a better playing and sounding guitar than the Jem555? Also because cash is low will it work out cheaper? Thanks guys :D

I'm a big fan of the Wizard neck. Have a you ever played a JEM? I think it's a huge difference. It's just whatever your hands feel most comfortable with.

Overall, I think the construction of the 550 is a little better.

555 has a thicker neck yes, and it also has evolutions. The Evo's are a plus

The minuses for me are the trem, and the half-baked vine inlay.

I just bought a used 550 because I sold mine like an idiot about 10 years ago. I'm looking forward to my new toy!! It's black with maple fretboard. Putting in some white Duncan's. She's going to be sweet!!

I have nothing again Evo's, I think they're awesome. I just think Duncan's have a sweeter, and not so dry sound.
