    I chose and bought this bass after comparing it to the Fender five string standard jazz bass and the four string versions and found the Affinity five string to be equal in quality construction as the Fender versions. I am playing this bass in church services. The sound is impeccably Fender at an very economical price. It is, in my opinion, a professional quality instrument. Go ahead and buy it for your kids but if you play regularly like I do you need this instrument in your arsenal. For the price it can be your 'go to' bass if you cannot afford an American Fender.
    For a standard jazz version of the Fender jazz bass it meets its big brother on sound, construction, and playability.
    Very high quality. I set the bass up with D'Addario nickel half rounds to remove the roundwound string sound when you move your fingers against the strings. It gave me a sound almost equivalent to an upright bass which was a stunning surprise to me. I intend to put Thomastik-Infeld strings on it to get as close to the upright sound as possible. This bass will do it.
    The price is far below the instrinsic value of the instrument. This is a high quality bass for the money.

    this is a good beginner bass. you get wha you paid for. with some new strings, the bass doesn't sound all so bad. I also play a musicman bongo 5 and this bass has features the bongo doesn't have. the sustain is amazing on this bass. the note won't die out. but on the bongo, the note lasts for a couple counts and then just dies. overall, not a bad bass.

      Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

      I purchased this as my first 5 string bass, because I have been playing a 4 string for years and I was ready for a challenge. This bass did not disappoint right out of the box. The brown sunburst is just beautiful. Very well packed in shipping box. Another great job by MF for price and for fast shipping

      Good bass for the price

      Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

      Good bass for the price. Don't buy the used one. I purchased the used one and received e-mailed that it was back ordered. I called and a rep assured me it was not and the bass would be shipping shortly. I then received a email from another rep stating the bass was back ordered and he would love to assist me in finding something else. I emailed the rep back and got no response. Yet another call in to MF. Finally the rep I spoke to got me a new bass for almost the same price as the used one. It was not a pleasant experience but they righted their wrong. Will not purchase used stuff from MF ever again.

        Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

        Received this instrument and has a great tone and feel. The individual volumes for the neck and bridge pick ups give you the choice of different sound depending on the rhythm of your preference. The tone knob gives you clarity for slapping or picking. Makes a good pair with a good amp. The color is awesome in sunburst-brown.

          This is by far the best 5 string you can get at this price. As with all Fender/Squier instruments that I've seen or played in the past, including a Squier Bullet Strat, Fender Mustang Bass, and Geddy Lee Signature Jazz Bass, this is put together perfectly and plays like a charm.

            I bought one to explore the 5 string. I think it is a good bass, not a 10 but a good value. One thing I like is the midway detent on the bridge pup volume. Nice way to help know where you are mix-wise. My other basses do not have this.

            If it had a better bridge and tuners it would be a better quality bass but it would cost more too.

            Good starter/practice/studio bass.

              I bought this as my first 5 string and i sold it because i thought that i would never need one again. Boy what a mistake. The sound was incredible. one pickups was muddy for a beefier sound and one was bright for a clear sound. both are controlled by separate volumes. Neck was a little large to begin with, but it grows on you after a while. Not exactly professional, but if you are looking for a bass that can fit in at any occasion, this is the one.

                  Terrific value for the dollar, seriously. I did a fifteen minute setup and it plays like a dream. Don't let the "Affinity" name scare you. I don't konw what they skimped on but its a fine instrument.

                  I've never played a "real" Fender Jazz but I've played planty of basses and this is a good one. A keeper, no doubt.
