  3. I use both. I like the neck of the JO over the Fender. My JO is Swamp Ash with Maple board and my MIA Jazz Dlx V(not in pic's just got) is Adler with Pau Ferro board. Also my JO has Bart 57J1's and a J-Retro. My JO is very snappy and bright and I find the Fender a little more mellow. Both are great instruments IMO. I really don't notice the difference in the scale.

    I love the JO5's!!!!!!!!!! How do they compare to the Jazz V's when they are stock with the passive Fralin's???
  5. For the 4 strings, I prefer the Fenders. For the 5's, I prefered the Laklands I've played. It's really all about the neck, and Lakland does the 5 string neck much better.
