Lakland DJ / JO question

    Can anyone tell me if the DJ body is a bit undersized compared to a Fender Jazz. The body is obviously a different shape but I'm wondering about the size - if it might be undersized a bit like a Sadowsky?

    Also, is the bridge pick-up placed closer toward the bridge like the early 70's Fenders? I can't tell by looking because of the defferent body style - the oval bridge throws me off too.

    I assume the JO models are full-sized bodies?

    Yes, Yes, and Yes. The DJ body is undersized and has a deeper cutaway on the lower bout, and a smaller lower horn. The bridge pickup is closer to the bridge as well. The JO is more of a full sized body in the traditional jazz dimensions.
