    Ok, It's not a made in America model. Maybe the pickups arent the best. But this is as nice of an instrument I have ever owned or played. Neck, fretwork, setup, body, is all as good as any costing thousands more. Pickups can be changed if you wish. Also the bridge and strings. Get some confidence in yourself and your playing and get a Squier. You won't play any better on an Alembic. Waste your money on an expensive bass if you are worried what your friends will say. Play your butt off on a reasonably priced, well made instrument, and show the guys who is smart. I've been playing since 1963.

      Comments about Squier Affinity Series Precision Bass PJ, Rosewood Fingerboard:

      I just can't believe that any company can offer a bass with these features at this price point! The strength of this instrument is the materials used and its tonal versatility. I was looking for a budget precision bass when I stumbled upon this one. You can solo the neck pickup as much as you want but when the song comes up the requires a contemporary bass tone you've got the bridge pickup to bring to bear. Honestly this bass seems too good to be true but it's no joke.

        Comments about Squier Affinity Series Precision Bass PJ, Rosewood Fingerboard:

        I read a lot of reviews on this product before deciding to buy. I own several Squier basses and had great success with them. I normally hot rod them, customize them and just see how far I can take them; they never let me down. I thought I'd go ahead and get this one because of the PJ set up and when I took it out of the box I was immediately struck with how solid this bass felt. So far all I've done to it is add strap-locks and a Hipshot Extender. As it is; this baby is going right into my starting rotation. I saw one review where someone said "I'd play it out, but I'm not a professional bassist", well sir, I am a professional - and I'm playing it out!

            I purchased a bass guitar from Musician's Friend for my son. He says he's very satisfied with the sound and quality, enjoys playing it very much. It arrived in great condition and in good time. I was able to buy it at a good price. What's not to love?

            Comments about Squier Affinity Series Precision Bass PJ, Rosewood Fingerboard:

            Quality for the price range should really be 10 stars! This bass amazes me for its modest price. Nice finish and feel. I bought it with the intention of putting a fretless neck on it and doing some other modifications, but I'm very tempted to keep it as is. I was ready to do some set-up on it, but I didn't find that necessary. The neck is surprisingly straight and playable for an instrument in this range--evidence that it takes a Fender company to make the best Fender "copies." Of course, the strings it shipped with are horrible. I've switched them for some D'Addario half rounds, and the sound is very satisfying--especially having both the P and J pickups for a little variety. Run through a compressor, it can kick out some serious sound. No, it's not a Fender Custom Shop instrument, but for the price, it's pretty amazing! I've been playing for over 35 years. I don't really care what the peg head says, as long as the instrument works for me, and this one is going to work very well...with or without a new neck.

              Bought this bass as a platform to customize a PJ. Plan on eventually adding Bartolini pickups and a BadassII bridge. I am going to leave it alone for a bit, as the setup out of the box was very good, and the tone is pretty good also. Absolutely worth more than the price.

                  I have the Fender Deluxe Jazz and The American Standard Jazz and this little baby gives them a run for the money. It has great highs and punchy lows. You may have to adjust the action and change the strings. That's about it. Buy this puppy, you won't regret it. I use it for a Motown and Funk band. I still can't believe the price. Good luck.

                      I needed a back up bass just for the security but also one that I wanted to play.I found it.The two pickups instead of just one split one makes it closer to the same sound as my jazz bass.All in all it's the bass I've wanted in look and sound.
