I know automatically you are thinking...yeah its a squier affinity. you are probably rolling your eyes as read this. Though im sure you would like to hear the truth. made overseas fender products are really making their marks. This bass is amazing. I plugged it in at the store and let me tell you, it sang like a bird! begging, intermediate even a pro player, i suggest this bass for you! Its not even 200 dollars. even if you aren't a huge fan you should still pick this bass up because it is solid as a rock.

I was looking for a cheap bass to have at home. I played a black model in store and thought it was pretty nice for the $$$. Saw that Musician's Friend had the Red model priced $50 below, and had GC price match. The bass I received has a few issues. the A string rattles at both the nut and the bridge. Fret buzz all over the neck. Controls are loose and the input jack does not hold a cable well. I will be looking to either return the bass, or see if GC will address these issues at no cost.

IF you are able to play the actual bass you are buying and it seems solid, buy it. Otherwise I would stay clear.

    I play The Sex Pistols tribute band and I couldn't afford to go out and buy $1,000 or $1,500 white P Bass with a black pickguard.
    The Squier Affinity series P bass is perfect for what I need it for

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

      Playing at home, occasionally with a friend. The Affinity series has come a long way and especially over the last few years. The paint finishes and hardware are on par with the price, but the quality of the necks has vastly improved. Very nice fret finishing and the action is very adjustable - you can get it as low as some very pricey basses. Not a professional's instrument from a durability standpoint, but a great value for the beginner to intermediate player.

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

          I needed to get a new bass since the one I was currently borrowing was asked to be returned. So, on a budget, and on a short schedule for when I am in need of a bass, I drove on over to my local Guitar Center (after researching the night before) and picked up this little gem. I'm no expert, but this bass plays really well. It's a little heavier than my last one, but that is overlooked thanks to how well I think it plays. I have yet to try it amped up, since I am without one right now, but after trying it at the store, I'm sure it will play well amped. Anyway, this bass is one I would recommend to beginners or bassists on a budget. Or to those who really don't care and thinks it looks cool (like me).

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

          Before you read my review, you should know that I am primarily a guitarist and this is my first bass guitar. I decided that I would get a bass for song writing, recording and such, and was looking for an inexpensive and versatile bass. I first saw this bass online, but was a little skeptical as it's from the Squier affinity series. I was at my local guitar center about a month later and saw one on the wall. I was curious so I plugged it in and started playing. I bought it on the spot.

          The neck and body of this bass feel just as good as my buddy's Fender American P Bass, and the tones it produces are great. The P bass pickup delivers a booming bottom end, and the J bass pickup in the bridge produces a bright, crisp tone. The added bridge pickup, and the individual volume knobs that let you blend the two pickups together however you want, make this bass very versatile. I personally love the funky sound the bass produces when both pickups are turned all the way up. The pickups themselves are great too. I have no problem getting the tones that I want (I run it through a Fender Rumble 40 which I also picked up GC and will be writing a review on). The tone control is also very responsive and quite usable.

          On to the cons. When plugged in, it produces a bit of hum. This can be quieted by touching any of the metal components on the bass including the strings, so it shouldn't be a problem while playing. There's also some fret buzz when playing on the lower frets, but it's not much of a problem for me as it doesn't come through the amp and could probably be fixed with a decent setup (had the bass for over a month now and haven't gotten around to it yet as the stock setup is comfortable and quite playable)

          Overall this is a great bass for beginners and even advanced players who are looking for a solid bass to add to their collection or to mod. Got it in metallic red to match my red strat, and it it looks fantastic.

          The bass shipped to a military base in Turkey in about 8 days. I was impressed with how well it was packed. The bass itself looks and feels great. I'm a brand new player so I don't know all the details but the only thing that stood out was minor fret buzz once I had it tuned. This was something I fixed myself though after watching a couple how to videos. It plays great and there's no more buzz. For entry level this is well worth the money.

          This bass is far better than I ever expected. With better pickups and a switchcraft jack + a good set-up
          This Affinity bass can hold its own next to the top of the line. I truly believe that. I've been playing guitars for 35 years, and I've owned the best and worst.
          In this modern age, China has really pulled it together and fender/Squier has definitely stepped up their game on the Affinity models. It' no longer necessary to look at Agile or SX bass guitars to get the Fender feel and sound. But, the affinity pickups must be replaced with AVRI spec type. Get the true vintage sound.

          By Greg

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

          I have been playing guitar 5 years and wanted to learn bass for awhile now. I love looping and was tired of doing baselines with a guitar and having a bass now it is so much better. I can't believe this bass sounds this good. After setting the bass up it doesn't buzz at all. Tuners hold very well and for this price, it is a great beginner or even experienced bass guitar to have for a bassist or guitarist.

          Very good base Bass Guitar to build on.

          By Randall

          from Hootie's Racetrack

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

          I play a lot of 60s style Hot Rod & Surf music. No tremendous Jazz soloing here! I was looking for a project bass to Hot Rod. Slap a racing stripe on it to really look the part. It's been a hobby of mine to buy inexpensive basses and modify them. Spent a lot of money over the years but it's been fun. That's what a hobby should be about, right? Lately though I find that I want to play more rather than mess around with guitars so, I bought this Squire to give it one last shot. After trying it out at the local GC I was very impressed. I was disappointed that it was made in China but I can't afford American so... I replaced the pick ups with Duncan Designs that came out of a Squire PBass years ago. Replaced the nut with a GraphTech. D'Addario flatwoun strings. And the capacitor with a .56K. That's it. I'm very satisfied with it. I put a beefier Gotoh bridge on it but it seemed to muffle the tone. I like a warm, low tone but it sounded like mud. Definitely like the stock bridge sound. I bought the black model and I'm thinking about buying a red one for a back up and do the same changes to that one. Hope this helps.
