    Does anyone know the weight of the Skyline DJ 5 string or where I can find out?

    Also how does it compare to a JO or... the 55-02?

    Thanks in advance

    The weight, as with most basses, will vary. Given that it's a fiver, and that Skylines sometimes weigh 11 lbs., I wouldn't expect it to be on the light side. Having said that, my DJ4 is a very comfortable 9 lbs.

    How does it compare in what ways? You can check the features, looks and sounds out on Lakland's site (they have audio clips).

    Be aware that both DJs and JOs now have Lakland pickups--they used to come with Aeros and Fralins, respectively, until sometime in 2006. Also, 55-02s used to come with Barts before Lakland started using its own preamp/pups system.
