Skyline Series Darryl Jones (DJ-5)
The Skyline Series Darryl Jones Signature Model DJ-5 features the same “updated classic” tone as our DJ-4, but is combined with the legendary Lakland 35” scale – the reason all Lakland 5s have such fabulous bottom tone. When you talk about clarity, tautness and tone in regards to the low B, you’re talking about our passion! Graphite reinforcement bars are added for tonal stability and the dual vintage voiced single coil Lakland pickups are hand fabricated and wound with exact tolerances in our Chicago shop.
Looks, ergonomics, playability, and that big bottom tone make this one of Lakland’s most popular and longstanding models.

“While… similar to the company’s Vintage J 44-60 and 55-60 models, the new Signature models offer more curve to their contouring and cutaways that Lakland says adds vintage styling.”
