Based on Joe's legendary vintage bass, this one delivers tone and playability. We labored over the design to combine both 1960's and today's leading edge technologies to create a contemporary classic. Four or five strings.

Show full description »

A case can be made that Joe Osborn is the premier studio bassist of all time. Here’s the evidence ... Joe played on: Travelin’ Man, This Diamond Ring, Eve Of Destruction, Monday Monday, Poor Side of Town, Windy, Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In, Wedding Bell Blues, Dizzy, (They Long To Be) Close to You, Cracklin’ Rosie, I Think I Love You, Bridge Over Troubled Water, I Am Woman, Top of The World, Delta Dawn, Billy Don’t Be a Hero, Please Mr. Postman. And those are just the pop/rock #1 hits!

What Joe has done on the electric bass is nothing short of staggering. The list of artists with whom he has worked reads like a “Who’s Who” of popular music, and includes: The Mamas and the Papas, Johnny Rivers, Rick Nelson, Simon and Garfunkel, The Carpenters, The Fifth Dimension, Glen Campbell, The Association, Neil Young, and America to name a few. Joe holds four Hat Awards from The Academy of Country Music, was the recipient of Bass Player Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and his list of Billboard hits runs as long as a country mile.


Joe Osborn played his original 1960 bass on more than 200 Top 40 pop singles and over 400 Top 40 country singles before he decided to set his vintage axe aside to give it some R&R. The ’60 gave Joe a tone and playability that no other bass was able to match ... until now! Our collaboration with one of the music industry’s most influential electric bass players yielded a masterpiece of simplicity and usability.


With Joe, we labored over the design of this instrument to combine the leading edge of ’60’s technology (the slim neck and narrow nut, the offset-body balancing, and concentric control knobs) and applied today’s leading edge technology (graphite reinforcement, enhanced neck joint, passive pickups by Lindy Fralin) to create a contemporary classic.


35 inches! That’s the scale length of the new JoBo 5 and the reason all Lakland 5’s sound so good, so low! When you talk about clarity, tautness and tone in regards to the low B, you’re talking about our passion!


The Skyline Joe Osborn is manufactured to the same specifications as our U.S.-made Joe Osborn Signature Series Bass and outfitted with the same passively delicious Lindy Fralin J-style pickups. Lindy’s pickups replicate vintage bass tones as well as we’ve ever heard and players love the comfy taper of the Osborn’s neck.

The bottom line on Joe Osborn: Joe has recorded with The Mamas and Papas, Simon and Garfunkel, The Carpenters, America and Rick Nelson, to name only a few.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
