  • Description
  • More Details

The JEM 555 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1994. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai and part of his JEM series. It was rolled out as a more affordable member of the JEM family, made in Korea instead of Japan and with less expensive parts. In 2008 production moved to Indonesia. It has not been part of the US lineup since 2000, but it was offered in other markets through 2015. The JEM 555 features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. The fretboard has Tree of Life vine inlays up to the twelfth fret and dot inlays above that. Components include a double locking tremolo bridge and DiMarzio Evolution pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil. Comes complete with original Ibanez Hard Case.
