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.

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

      I bought this bass planning to upgrade the tuners and pickups. I own a 20th Anniversary Squier P-Bass. The tuners had almost a 1/4 turn of lash, so I upgraded them to Schaller BM-4s... and changed the pickup to a Seymour Duncan PB-3 Quarter Pounder. I intended to replace the pickups on this PJ Bass with a EMG Gezzer Butler set. I was pleasantly surprised. This is one fine bass. I get the tone I want from the Jazz pickup alone and there is no lash in the tuners. Several reviews mention fret buzz. I don't see any on mine... If it ain't broke... I've built and/or modified nine Stratocasters, three Telecasters, and two P-Basses... Several of the bodies are Squier Affinitys and while there is little consistency between them... Parts may not be interchangeable - just try to find a P-Bass pickguard that doesn't require adjustments... Squiers have certainly come a long way...

        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

          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.
