      Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Electric Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      This bass is very nice in its basic stock form. A set up is a good idea. Not much attention is needed in the electronics dept., but you may want to check the jack, it's as thin as a paper clip.
      Beautiful fit and finish.
      It came detuned, and the neck was a bit out. But since the set-up it's been Absolutely Fabulous!

        Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Electric Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

        I got this bass yesterday, needing a cheap bass for home recording projects. I didn't expect a whole lot, because I've had Squier equipment before (and have been very disappointed in the past). However, I was blown away when I tried it out and even more so when I put some new strings on it.

        The great thing is how versatile this bass is. I've been using it for rock, metal, pop-punk, and a little bit of thrash. It sounds phenomenal in every genre I've wanted it in. It plays very well, the neck is relatively fast, and it's fairly lightweight compared to other bass guitars.

        My only recommendation is swapping out the stock strings. It makes a big difference and with some medium-gauge strings, it'll sound better than you'd ever think a Squier guitar could sound. I'm extremely glad I got this bass and would happily buy it again.
