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

    Wife got this one for me for Christmas in the classic "Lake Placid Blue". Although this is my first bass, I've been playing Guitar for 35 years. My two cents....you simply can not find a better value for your buck. The finish is gorgeous, and flawless. The Rosewood finger board on mine has some REALLY nice figure to it. The neck was straight and perfect. The tuning machines are literally identical to the ones I've seen on Fender USA Basses, and hold really well. This one required no setup out of the box, the action was nice and low just the way I like it. Both pick ups were nice and strong and clear. Another thing to mention is the GREAT tone this thing has,( guttural lows, punchy mids, and clear highs). I seriously don't know what your getting for the Fender USA Bass for all the additional cash, over this one...... This gets my "Just Buy it already! " rating.

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

    The setup out of the box was fine, and the feel of the neck on these, well it is what sold me on the Affinity Jazz VS other models. I have ugpraded mine, to suit my tastes, not that there was anything wrong with it. HOWEVER, I have one issue with it that is driving me batty, and that is a poor quality finish. The finish is popping off in little flecks. This is obviously a surface prep problem at the factory (have they heard of primer?), sadly the Fender authorized facility says it's dents (it's not, there is one spot that is dented, and the paint stayed put). It is most likely my one unit that is like this, I have had Squier affinity basses in the past with no problems. I am keeping this one as a great neck is so hard to find, but you can bet your belly button I am going to strip it and refinish it once it annoys me enough... If I hadn't bought it as a modding platform, I would have yelled a LOT more at Fender about the finish quality problems...

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

      Excellent bang for your buck, here! I was looking at using only the body as a project piece...but I'm pleasantly surprised, and may run with it for awhile as is. Good neck and pocket fit. Tuners handle the job. Controls, bridge, and pups don't measure up to USA standards - but what does one expect for this kind of money? I'll add some USA Fender parts that are on hand, and have a player that I can use anywhere. Great starter bass as is, and good (or soon will be) for any kind of studio and/or live duty.

        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.
