I was looking at buying this guitar (Jem555) and some people said they weren't worth buying, it's only 560 slightley used. If it's just the tremolo then i can get that fixed, does anyone know what the deal is with the Jem Jr? I mean is there a huge difference between them and others. Why is it called Jem Jr.

well, first things first: the jem 555 is not the jem jr. The jem jr is the cheapest crap ever (take a look at the Ibanez page). Notice dat the 555 has half of the vine inlay, the jem jr has stinkin dots.
On the jem555....i noe nothing about it sorry lol

Jem 555 and jem jr (also called jem 333) is totally different guitar. I've played 555 and 333. The 555 is alright to my opinion not as bad as somepeople claim it to be but if you want to compare it with the real deal then it's a different story. The 333 is crap expensive, no vines, shitty ILT1 trem(worst fucking trem ever) The feel of the neck is the same but it's just too damn expensive compare to it quality

Well this has Jem Jr. written on the headstock but says Jem 555 on the back of the head stock....? I can always get the Trem replaced, also the neck has half vine inlays and half dots with Vai written on it in 24 fret. I was gonna eventually get a custom LED full vine inlay anyways.
