    I currently have a sunburst JO5 w/ maple board and tort guard that I would like to trade for a sunburst JO4 w/ maple board. I really like the JO5 even though I am normally a 4 string player only, I actually like the chunkier neck but the music I regularly gig with rarely requires me to use a 5 string so I'm wanting to see if I can trade it for the same exact bass with one less string.

    Currently this is the only picture I have on a group shot of my basses. I have more detailed pictures but I recently took down my website and have yet to open a photobucket account to host photos.

    and here is another picture I have of it on my myspace page..

    The bass is in great condition, no major dings or dents, maybe a few slight scratches from my fingernails but thats it. The neck is nice and broke in and feels great.

    Again, I will ONLY trade for a Lakland Skyline JO4, sunburst w/ maple board.

    Please contact me via PM if you have any questions.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!

    I see a distinct letting go of Fivers lately.

    nice bass - hope someone feels the need to "get another string"

    I'm sure you won't have a problem

    I've contacted my local Lakland dealer to see if they have what I want in stock but haven't heard anything back yet.

    I hope I find a trade but it won't hurt me a bit if I have to keep it.

    If you're talking about Martin Music, I'm pretty sure they don't have any JOs in stock.

    If I had a JO4, I'd tade you in a heart beat. All I've got is my Geddy Lee, and that's not what you're looking for. :meh:

    Yep. :)

    We're playing at Gill's on Highland Fri. night and the Blue Monkey on Madison Sat. night if any locals would like to check the bass out.

    I also may consider trading my JO5 for any other brand of sunburst/maple board 4 string Jazz.....Fender, etc.


    yes, they are the stock pickups.

    You've gotten my interest up. I really, REALLY love my JO4, but I'm in the opposite boat in that my band is doing lots of stuff that needs a 5 string.

    My JO4 is a twin sibling of yours, I even added the tort pickguard. But mine has a chrome pickup cover and I added a Hipshot D-tuner on it as well. Let me ponder this overnight tonight. Here's a pic of mine for reference

    I thought long and hard about this but I just can't do it. I got home this morning from a 2 week long business trip and played both my Laklands. The JO4 is so light, the neck is just perfect. If I swapped it for a 5, then I'd be forced to choose whether to use the JO5 or the DJ5 on any given day. At least this way, the JO fits the 4-string stuff and the DJ covers the low B.

    Hey man, here's a bump, even though I can't bring myself to give up my 4string.

    I feel ya, I'm still skeptical about trading this for a 4 string. Still not 100% sure if I wanna do it or not.


    edit: I'm gonna close this thread since I'm pretty sure I've changed my mind.
