    I am thinking of getting Lakland Skyline Joe Osborne 5 Bass.
    Has anyone had any experience with this particular bass?
    I think I can get a used one for under $ 600.
    Do think this is one of the best bass that I can get for the money. I am planning to spend no more than $ 600 for my next bass. Any other suggestions?
    Thanks,
    zevo

    I own one, it's an incredible bass. For 600$ it's the best bass you can get.
     
  3. I'm always searching, and at 500.00 The Skyline JO 5 is a great bass. I wouldn't hesitate as long as its in great shape :)

    The Skyline JO5 is a fantastic bass. If it's in good shape I'd say take the plunge.

    I would buy it in a flash right now. And I'm on day 3 of my Lakland DJ...

    I've bought one when they first came out. It's a great bass. you'll find many positive reviews if you do a search of this forum.

    I think that the street price for a new one is still just under $1,000. Therefore, the price that you mentioned for a used one is pretty fair IMHO.
