this is a great bass if your just playing bass in a garage band, or just massing around, but if you are playing in an actual live proformance, or any other kind of show, oyu will need to upgrade, the amp is kind of loud and can really put out a better sound than it looks like it would, but the bass itself lacks quality, i acoasionaly crackles, and it has nearly no sustain

This is an excellent bass pack to start with, it is relatively cheap, and everything works well right out of the box. Getting a stand to go with it is a must, but other than that, everything you need to start playing is included. I've had this bass going on 9 months, and it has for the most part been reliable. Pickups work fine, and it's fun to play around with the sound with the volume adjustments, although you can't produce an enormous range in tone. All the hardware seems to work well, and it stays properly tuned for a pretty long time. the frets can stick out a bit from the edge, and I've cut myself once or twice when I slid down the fretboard with my fingers too close to the edge. I would advise filing or sanding them down, given how inexpensive the bass is. The biggest problem I had with the bass is the output jack. Mine was extremely loose, and the nut holding it in place would get loose enough to freely spin off every few days. I could tighten it with my fingers to a reasonable extent, but it was still irritating. In the last week, I decided to make a more permanent solution and used pliers to tighten the nut as much as my strength would allow. Sadly, I had not considered that there was a wire attached to the jack, and shortly after the tightening, I found there was no output. When I opened the pickguard up, I saw that the wire which connected the output to the frequency adjustment had torn loose because it is very short. Sadly the bass is currently unusable as I don't have the time to buy soldering supplies right at the moment. Hopefully this will serve as a cautionary tale to would-be buyers and you can be more careful than I was. As for the other parts included in the pack: gig bag - doesn't provide the protection of a molded case, but is light and much easier to handle, I never had any trouble with it when I transported my bass around, but it does feel kind of flimsy. strap - not very comfortable, but functional, I never really used it since I had another better one lying around, but it seemed acceptable. cord - absolute rubbish. Buy a braided cord or ask the people at your music store for a recommendation. the jack basically tore out of the end of the cable in a matter of weeks. amp/speaker - admittedly I know close to nothing about amps, but when I plugged in the bass and played, noises came out that seemed to correspond to what I wanted to come out. Not super high sound quality or volume, but definitely acceptable for practice or showing off to your friends. It lets you plug in another sound source (like an mp3 player) if you have a stereo cable, and you can plug in the included headphones if you have an adapter. EQ didn't seem to do much though. headphones - possibly my favorite part of the whole pack, these have shockingly high sound quality (although the bass is lacking compared to bass-emphasizing headphones like Beats) a little analog volume control on the cord is pretty handy, and also has a mic built in. the cord is very long, definitely long enough to stand up and play with the headphones plugged into the amp. I've started using these as my everyday headphones, although the long cord is a little inconvenient for that. tuner - works fine, the bass seemed right in tune when I played along with songs, and the interface is easy to understand and use. If you want a better one, a lot of people recommend the Snark clip on tuner, which I have found works very well. DVD - I didn't even bother looking at this, there's much better tutorials on youtube, and I also had a teacher initially. Probably wouldn't hurt to watch it, but google is probably at least as good a resource.

'I am so happy right now'

By John Parker

from Roseville CA

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

Those were the words of my 14 yr. old grandson on Christmas Day when he unwrapped his Fender Affinity Jazz Pack from GuitarCenter. The pack included all that he needed to get started. In minutes he had the bada_ _ black Fender IV string bass strapped and amped. In a single word he described his new bass guitar from GuitarCenter as "Awesome". I recommend it to anyone who is trying to decide which guitar is the right one to get started. The guitar pack was ordered online at GuitarCenter.com. The transaction was secure, quick and easy. The bonus was being able to have the guitar pack picked up at a store in another state near my daughter's home. GuitarCenter telephoned her when the guitar was in stock and ready for pick up. I'd do it again!

Great Value

By Daniel Perrault

from Canton, Michigan

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

This package is great. Everything you need to get started playing is inside this pack. The bass itself is amazing, though I would recommend putting new strings on it. The cable can be a bit dodgy and I'd advise purchasing a new one. The strap does its job, albeit not very well. The Headphones are a bit uncomfortable but serve their purpose well. You can get good volume out of the amp and the gig bag works. I'd stand by this as a great buy for a beginner looking for the works.

Great Starter Bass

By Jared Haley

from Louisiana

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

I just got this bass for Christmas and I really enjoy playing it. Im new to playing bass but I play a lot of other instruments so I picked it up fast. For the price, the bass and amp sound better than i expected. It actually has a pretty clean sound. The amp isnt very loud but it will definitely do the job for practicing at your house. My only complaint is that on the first fret on the E string, whenever you press it down, it has very bad fret buzz. It may only be mine, But overall, definitely worth the money

I am not a pro, but

By Bobby

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

I am not a pro at the bass guitar, but when I bought it the salesman didn't tell me it needed to be set up. The bridge was way too high and the neck was messed up, as it rattled when I got to the seventh fret. I have been taking lessons is when I found out most of my problems I was having was the bass and not me. When they make the bass in Indonesia they should get it right the first time. If it was $70.00, I would be more likely to understand, but it was $300.00. Also very heavy. Now after paying $24.58 to have it set up. My Fender bass sounds and plays alot better now. The amp is awsom, I think it would be too heavy for a kids first bass guitar though. And the strap it comes with will rub your neck raw.

Value for the beginner

By HeadHunter

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

I picked up the red Squier J-Bass today, but I did not get it as part of this pack. I wanted to be able to select the components and be sure of what I was getting. I have a Korg CA-1 chromatic tuner so I didn't need one of those, and I've got a couple of decent aftermarket straps I'd like to use instead of the basic narrow web straps that come in most of these bundles. A few reviews have mentioned the questionable reliability of the cable, so I spent a few dollars more and got a better one that's made by LiveWire (which GC owns, so it's covered by them). I don't need a gig bag yet (since I don't plan on taking it anywhere soon) but when I do, I want to invest in one that will better protect my instrument. The amp that comes in this bundle is good, but there's a newer model of the Rumble 15 with metal input and output jacks rather than the plastic ones on the amp in this kit. I'm sure the new model will make its way into these bundles eventually, but in the meantime I like the more reliable fittings on the new standalone Rumbles. The bass itself is an EXCELLENT instrument for the beginner. I like the narrower nut and the taper of a J-Bass neck over the bulkier P-Bass alternative. This neck makes for easy playing and fretting from the first fret all the way down to the 12th and beyond. I can easily get my pinky up onto the E string here, which is something I couldn't quite do on the Precision. Altogether, I spent perhaps $20 more than the package price and got better quality hardware for it. If the bundle came with the new Rumble 15 and a better cable, I'd easily rate this 5 stars (the J-Bass itself is 5-stars hands-down, no contest). If you are a beginner and you need the tuner, the gig bag and all the other accessories, then it's worth the savings to buy the bundle. If you'd rather pick and choose, or if you have some of the stuff already, you're better of buying the bass separately and selecting the amp and gear you like.

A great value!

By George M

from Wantagh, NY

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

This Jazz Bass Pack is a great combination of quality and price! I'm a newbie, so I showed it to a couple of friends who are very accomplished guitarists, and they loved it. The guitar is very well made; I like the dark blue metallic finish. The amp sounds very good. I'm glad I read other people's reviews, because they have noted that the strap is on the flimsy side and it looks that way to me also. I didn't want to take a chance on the strap breaking and possibly damaging the guitar, so I purchased a more durable after-market strap ASAP. Kudos to the staff at Guitar Center store in Carle Place, NY. They were extremely patient and helpful with my order. I would definitely do business with them anytime!

Comments about Squier Affinity Jazz Bass Pack:

I am very pleased with the package overall. It has all you need to get started. The headphones were a nice touch and are higher quality than I expected. The bass itself is good to start with, and has good tone. Amp is just a practice amp, but serves it's purpose. Funny that fender would package a case that will only fit the bass if you cram it in!! Other than that I love it!!
