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.

Very nice bass (and not just for the price)!

By Reginald

Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

For anyone having second thought's about purchasing this instrument should go ahead. This is a very nice bass guitar that was set up nicely and played well right out of the box. The finish is spot on, the neck is solid and the tone was very good. I wanted an all passive instrument for a change as I'm used to playing active basses and have some very nice ones, however this was a wonderful surprise! I had a great time playing it in church yesterday and it will probably be going with me from now on.

      Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

      The low B 5th string makes for great bottom on any tune. The reasonable price allows me to purchase a second Affinity 5-string Jazz Bass V to keep at my Forida home for local venues there. While the actual Fender Jazz Bass is very desireable, this model looks, feels, plays and sounds great for the money!

        Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

        As a young bassist, I was very excited to step up from a 4-string to 5. The moment I played this bass, I knew this was the one to take home. Great quality, great sound, great looks, and for the price it's a steal. It's just like any other J bass, so if you're looking for a cheap 5-string with great quality, this is it.It's great for slap or any other playing style too. As a side note, because this is just like any other J, it doesn't have too much of a sharp, clear note, but a mellow tone. If you want sharp sound and then mellow at a moment's notice, I would recommend the Jaguar V. Overall, this bass if fantastic, great for anyone.

          Comments about Squier Affinity 5-String Jazz Bass V:

          I was jamming at a friends out of town and all they had was a Peavey 5 string bass. I found it awkward and not comfortable to play, to the point I removed the 5th (B) string. When I got home I decided to prepare if that happens again, saw this bass advertised, it looked good from the picture so purchased around $200. A great surprise when arrived, the quality and craftsmanship is very good and sounds great. I put away my other basses (1974 Fender P bass and Jazz) and forced myself to play this one for a few weeks. Glad I did, I love the low "B" and in 2-3 weeks have mastered it. I'm now looking at upgrading to an American Fender Jazz or P, but afraid it won't feel or sound any better then this.I really like this thing!

            First time I ever had a chance to play a Fender Jazz I was somewhat intimidated by the weight and large frets so I decided to break that stigma and I bought this beautiful piece of art and increase self-esteem. Grate product at a better price, if you are in for a 5 string bass and want to explore without breaking the bank, here it is, go for it!

              Didnt Know what to expect for the cost. Looking for a 5 string to lay down some deep bottom end on some metal recordings. I now see why this bass gets such great reviews. Awesome deal, good pickup tone, good feel, played perfectly and setup was spot on right out of the box.Finish is awesome and not a scratch anywhere from shipping. Both Squier and Musicians Friend have hit a homerun with this bass!!

              This bass arrived unblemished and ready to go. After tuning up, the action and intonation were perfect. It has great tone. I have a 4 string Fender Jazz bass and this inexpensive 5-string Squire kicked it's butt. In a little time I'll get use to the wider neck and the weight of her. I love this bass.

                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
