I recently got a 55-02.. As much as I love the neck, fit and finish, etc. of this instrument, it seems a bit too tame.. I don't seem to get much of the jazz growl with the rear coil selected.. Listening to the audio on the Lakland website, I found the Joe Osborn to also sound a bit tame, but that might be just due to the playing style of the guy that records the audio.. How similar does the JO5 sound to the 55-02's jazz sound? Is it a completely different animal? EDIT: BTW, I have the Lakland pups / LH3 preamp.
