    There is a local store selling a joe osborne skyline used for 650 in pretty good condition, no major dents, ect. Im sure i can get them down to 600 if not less. Is this a deal i shouldnt pass up? I have been in the market for a jazz bass, i was looking to spend less than 600 but if these basses are really what people hype them up to me, this seems like a reasonable deal.

    I have one of the passive Skyline JO's (4 string). I have to be honest, after I got this bass I sold my Sadowsky MV4. I only needed one jazz-style bass in my line-up and I chose the Lakland over the Sadowsky because the neck works for me much better. $600 is a pretty good deal.
