  • Great beginner's bass!

    As reviewed by HeadHunter on 7/12/2010

    I've been spending the last couple weeks shopping around for a good but inexpensive bass that's suited to a beginner's budget as well as abilities. I tried the P-Bass but did not like the neck. The guys at some local music stores had tried in the past to convince me that there's no real difference between the J and the P besides looks, but I know better. The J-Bass has a narrower nut and a nicer taper to the neck. I can easily get my pinky onto the E string at the 12th fret, which was something I couldn't quite do with the P-Bass. This baby is smooth and fast. I find I can play the material I already know, more easily and quickly than I can on other basses I have tried. Looks aren't the most important consideration when choosing an instrument, but the J-Bass has got them anyhow. Mine is hot-rod red and dead sexy. A long, slender neck, a sleek body and curvy hips - this bass looks every bit as good as it sounds. I'm sure it doesn't hold a candle to more expensive basses (like its Fender Standard counterpart) but for the beginner on a budget, it's a most satisfactory choice.

  • Simply Amaizing

    As reviewed by Vili on 2/16/2011

    I play bass for more then forty years. I own 11 basses, including Warwick NT Thumb and Warwick Steamer. Long time ago, I owned ?Fender Jazz Bass 1963?, which I liked but unfortunately I sold it. I recently red a very favorable review of ?Squier Affinity Series J Bass? in the "Bass Player" magazine. I got intrigued with the review, so I went in a music store to test it. I compared it with a ? Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Guitar?, which is built from the same type of wood, and has identical bridge and pickups. I adjusted the same volume and tone setup on both basses and tested them through ?Ampeq BA300 ? amplifier, as I use an identical amplifier. I could not fine any difference in tone. To my surprise, the Squier came with a better factory setup, with a significantly lower action. This bass has a perfect finish. Sound of this bass is identical to my 1963 bass (it uses the identical single coil pickups which are reissued). Although I did not plan to by another bass, I could not resist This bass is simply amazing. If you like Fender, go for this bass, simply save your money. Also, ignore stupid comments like ?this is a good bass for beginners? or ?this bass is not for a stage?. These comments are written by guys who are not serious bass players and cannot judge a quality of an instrument. This bass is simply as good as any American made Fender.

  • Great bass for new bassists

    As reviewed by Ethan Wilson on 2/23/2009

    This was the very first bass I bought and it is working out great. The tone is nice and it plays great with all sorts of music. Plus, the price is great.
