    I got a killer DJ5 in a trade here on TB the other day. I have had DJ5's before and they are great but this one is amazing. I got it with Bart Jazz 5 pickups and an East J Retro Preamp. This bass is simply amazing. I cannot get over how smoking this bass sounds. I love the DJ's and Barts and together with the J Retro, this is just a great combo. Will post pics if I can put it down long enough to snap a few!

    Yeah Laklands are my favorite too. I have a pretty special 55-94, and a really special '98 55-94 coming in August, so I know exactly how you feel. Please post pics for us, as I promise to post pics of my beautiful daughters when the 2nd one gets here. May the funk be with you!

    Did you trade your USA 55-94 for this one? If so can you tell the difference between the USA's and the skylines. I was thinking about picking up a natural/maple 55-02
  19. It looks like a mirror pickguard, It's probably just reflecting the carpet in the last picture.

    My JO5 has the Barts/J-Retro combo and I totally dig it. Mine are 57's.
