    I am ready to pull the trigger in a jazz bass, I am thinking either a DJ4 or JO4, I have owned these basses in the pass and always favored the DJ. I know that Lakland used to have Aero pickups on the DJ and Lindy on the JO, that by itself made a huge difference in the sound. But now that Lakland use home made pickups, Does anybody if there is any difference between a DJ and JO ? When I checked the specs seems to me that soundwise they are the same bass. Any opinion?
  2. AFAIK both the DJ and the JO now use the same "vintage style pickups" which in essence would make them quite similar in tone. You could change the pickups after purchase of the bass. Aero Type 1 j-bass pickups were used in the DJ.
