I really don't need a Lakland Joe Osborn, but I've been GASing for a Skyline JO. I don't have the money available now, and I have 2 SX Jazzes that I souped up that fill whatever needs I have to a J Bass. But, I love my Lakland 4-94s and the JO has three things that my SX doesn't. String through body, small frets, and superb craftmanship. I love my Laklands so much, I am GASin for another.
