    Very nice! The wear on the burst one-is that from playing the hell out of it or is Lakland following Fender's lead and upcharging for the "relic" treatment?

    Those bass are incredible looking. The grain on that JO5 is outstanding!

    Great looking family!

    Jazz basses are amazingly versatile, or have been for me........and thousands of others....at least. I love both of those basses, i was super shocked when you sold your natural ash jo4 beacuse of its outstanding beauty....I see you had good reason ;)

    Is it just me, or are the pickups spaced differently on the two basses? Maybe it's just a bit of an optical illusion because they havea differnt u number of frets. Anyway, ENJOY!

    They are space the same they just look different because of the neck. Thanks for the nice comments guys. To me the Jazz bass is the most versatile bass that someone could own. My next bass someday will be a NYC Sadowsky. For those gigs that I want to have a really light active bass that cuts!

    Nice. Ive had my sterling for about the same amount of time. I did not get it new , though. THere is some wear on mine but mostly its just broken in beautifully. The pickup does have a big indentation on the top from the thumb. That was also the previous owners doing, I think, I cant remember back that far.

    yo squid. What is it about the Laklands that you like more than the plethora of Metros that you've gone through?
  20. Nice basses you got there.
