I love the Jem7V, infact I go to my local music shop nearly every saturday just to play it. Sadly its out of my price range and money just seems to burn a hole in my pocket so I never save anything.

I found the Jem555 online for £645 which is a lot cheaper and as far as I can tell it has pretty much the same spec as the 7V with regards to neck, pickups, etc.
Granted the V7 has a better trem and nicer looking gold hardware but I figure I can always upgrade these later.

Now the catch... I'm assuming the V7 is twice the price for a reason. Has anyone ever played a Jem555, if so how does it compare to the 7V?
More to the point is it worth getting or do I just need to lay off the beer for a few months and save up for the 7V

JEM7vwh >>>>>>555
7vwh has an edge pro
555 has an edge 3 (shit)
7v- Full vine. Pearloid/ Abalone
555- Fake vine. Pearloid.
7v- Japanese factory- Better craftsmanship
555- Korean Factory- Questionalble craftsmanship
7v- Alderbody
555- Basswood
Over all the 7v is just plain nicer. Playing wise, sounding wise and looks wise
I've played both, there is a big difference in both soun
I'm back, you douchebags.

555 feels like a completely different guitar to me. Only similar esthetically. JEM555 is very poor quality. I'd pick a similarly-priced RG over a 555 any day. The guitar just feels and sounds nothing like a 7V, in my opinion.

You could find an Ibanez RG5xx/7xx instead and just change out the pickups. Granted, it won't look the same but it would be a very good guitar in the end. Plus you pay less.

I've already got an RGT6EX FX but I want a Jem. Like I said money just burns holes in my pockets
