Ive been trying to decide what bass to buy for about 4 months now. Its between Fender and Lakland, or if i can strech a custom Shuker Jazz. With Lakland is there two price range Joe Osbourn models. Also do you think this bass is pretty versatile. Is the B on a JO the same as a 55 I play Jazz/Funk. I know J Osbourn plays country,pop, that sort stuff, will his signature bass have any bearing on this, or does it just sound like a Jazz. ie, do you think it matters if you buy an artists model if you dont play what they play. M Miller Jazz for rock. Or am i talking rubbish??
