    Lakland Skyline JO5 ordered about 4 weeks ago from VBTC. Bass is natural w/rosewood board, tort guard and a lakland Hardshell case. This bass was ordered with Aero pickups instead of the Fralins. I also paid to have Lakland do a shielding job on the bass as well. The bass weighs in at 10.2 lbs on my scale and is in mint condition. The bass also has Dunlop straplocks installed. $900 shipped to the lower 48.

    Nice JO5. I'm kinda partial to oil and natural finishes. I'd be all over this if I didn't get a Tre-tone burst last week (hey, price was right).

    What you didn't liked about it?
    do the Aeros sound right in that bass?

    Sorry for all the questions but
    I need a bass by next week and
    want to buy a Lakland for sure.

    but still undecided between a JO & DJ (4 and 5 strings)

    How about the neck feel between the JO & DJ
    plus the weight between them.

    thanks for the feedback on the bass
    It looks like a good choice
    regards,
    CJ

    The aero sound pretty aggressive....I like them a lot. The thing that bothers me is the 35 scale I think. The bass sounds huge...like one big string (B string is awesome). I'm not posotive but I have read that the DJ5 neck was a little chunkier which is why I ordered the JO5 with the DJ5 pickups. The neck is flat and thin...very easy to play. The weight would probably be about the same. I guess it depends on each individual piece of wood though.

    Believe me, I've been trying to justify taking this off your hands. Bump for a good deal on a sweet ride.

    Prefer US Postal service money order but Paypal will work if you want to pay (or possibly split) the fees.
