I'm thinking about picking up one of these gems and I'm having a little trouble deciding on which to get. Maybe you guys and gals can help me out. The first thing that sparked a real interest was the looks of a white DJ5 with a maple fretboard. I also like the smaller body. My assumption that it also weighs less. Then I heard the sound clips of the JO5 and it kind of blew me away. Made me second guess myself on what sound I was actually after in the first place. I really don't think trying before buying is an option around here, so here's what you can help me with. The Neck: What I've read about the necks is the JO5 has a flatter neck and the DJ5 is a little chunky-er Is the flatter neck on the JO more like the neck on my 55-94? If so that would be a plus for the JO5. How chunky would you say the DJ5 neck is? Pickups: Originally the DJ came with Aero's and the JO with Fralins. Now on the website, they are listed as both having Lakland pickups. Is this true? If so, do they keep to the original sound of the two basses. (DJ=70's style and the JO=60's style.) How close of a cross over do these basses have as far as sound goes? One thing I will probably experiment with is adding an Audere preamp I have in another bass. It's easily reversible if I don't prefer it.
