I got this bass for Christmas two years ago, and it was my first bass. Before then I had never played a bass in my life. It's a very easy bass to play, and I would highly recommend it for beginners. The sound is great whether you play with a pick, your fingers, or you slap (I prefer fingering). The pickups are in the perfect spot to play finger style because it gives you something to rest your thumb on. I really only have two complaints about the bass. 1) When you play from about the 10th fret down the strings buzz a little and it's noticeable. Not that it sounds bad or anything but I feel it takes away from the sound. To solve that problem I just play with my bass tuned down all the time and it's not as noticeable. 2) The output jack is on the front of the bass. I managed to break the original cable that came with the bass because I jerked my bass up too hard and my foot was on the cable: now when I use the cable it adds a lot of static. I also managed to mess up my monster cable in the same way but I fixed it so it's cool. I had to fix the input jack yesterday because it fell off into my bass after it getting looser and looser since I play and move around so much. It was a very easy problem to fix however, all I had to do was take the fretguard off and screw the jack back to it. Neither of these complaints really make me think much less of the bass. It is an amazing bass, and it is very durable: I've dropped it on tile floors and banged the head on stuff and it's held up fine without even a scratch. The bass has a great range and I boost mine even further by hooking it up to my Q-Tron whenever I play...it also adds a lot of funk to whatever you play :]I highly recommend this bass to anyone who wants to learn bass and even to those of you who have been playing awhile because this is an all around great bass.

I am borrowing this bass from my friend as of a few months ago. i still kind of suck at bass because i started out with double bass and its a hard transition. but anyways, this is a alright bass. its very tough, i have hit it on about everything and it has no damage. the E tuning key is teribly loose and when i play it rattle like no ones buisness. im not sure if its the bass, my amp, or the cable, but it creats a lot of static and if i put the cable in just right, when i play it sounds like a fog horn. i have tried to fix this by bending the peice of metal that the male end of the cord touches, but with no sucess. for a beginnger like me, this bass is cool beans.

Good Starter Bass

By americnidiot

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

I got this as my first bass. I am a guitar player, but figured it would be fun to give bass a shot. This is a good bass for the money that is fun to pick up and play. If you want to start playing bass, this is quite a good bass to start with. The only problem i have had with it is that it comes out of tune somwhat easily. Otherwise, this is a good bass for the money and great to start with!

Pretty Good

By David

from Tampa Bay, FL

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

I have owned this bass for several years, and it is still working fine, despite several minor accidents. You might get a bit of fret noise at first, but it will go away with time as the wood ages. It is best for straight up rock n' roll and punk, but for jazz or metal I would recommend the Squier 70's jazz bass. But overall, this is a good beginner bass, especially if you're not sure if you're going to stick with it.

Good bass for beginers

By Daexsturminator

from Morristown, NJ

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

I have this bass in red and i really enjoy playing it. For its price i feel that this bass is great for begginers, but also for intermediate players. The bass is in my lap right now as i am typing this. I can't help but to pick it up all the time. Sound and performance is pretty good and the look is great. I do recommend you get yours fixed up with new strings and all that good stuff. Made mine sound a lot better. The look and sound makes this bass a pretty good buy for its value.

THE bass for a novice!

By Matthew

from New Orleans, Louisiana

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

I searched long and hard for my first bass, and I bought this bass in its beginner package. I set up the amp, plugged it in, and was completely satisfied. This bass is THE bass for begginers who want to start off right, either this or its J Bass brother. I have been playing it for a year a half, and while I plan to get a new bass soon, I wouldn't dream of getting rid of this bass, not after how far it has taken me.

Amazing

By Jason Corlett

from Mission Viejo, California

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

This was my first bass. Two years later, Im still pleased by the way it sounds. I screwed up my pick earlier, but was able to fix it with ease. It is one of the best basses i own, by look and sound quality. And i will keep playing it until it cant be played anymore :)

Snazzy Guitar

By thatdude222

from Tulsa, Ok

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

I got this guitar and all i can say is- WOW... it is amazing. The tone is awsome and really deep. You defenately need to change the strings, but after that its the bomb. Sounds grerat in my Hartke amp. So if your looking for a great guitar for all, the Squire Affinity is the best!

sexy bass

By robby

from OC

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

this was my first bass guitar that i bought used from the local music shop so i dont know what was done to it other than a string change but its a great bass for the money. i play it in the praise team at my church and get compliments from the band members on the look and compliments from the congregation on the sound. the sound is great, it definately has some nice punch to it. i got it in red and it is SEXY, and stands up to my sharp belt buckle really well with no scraches but a few dents from me tapping my foot. the only problem that i have with this bass is that the frets buzz a bit but that was fixed with thicker guage strings and that added a better tone too. great for slapping, and galloping. over all a great bass for the price and turned me into a bassist.

The bass that started it all

By RockstarRoadRunner

from New Jersey

Comments about Squier Affinity Series P Bass:

Back when I was 14, I decided I was gonna take the inspiration I had for years from Green Day and invest it into becoming a musician... It's been two years since I bought this thing and it has still been amazing. The tone is incredible for the price in any amp, the playability is pretty good pretty fast, and the tuning (I can leave it in a bag for a month and not play, take it out a month later and the tuning is still perfect) this puppy's gears are tough...I'm an amazing bassist today and I have this to thank for it all, so if your a begginer like me and looking for your first bass, you can never go wrong bro.
