The Squier Affinity Series Jazz Bass V (five-string) is a value-priced version of the world famous Fender Jazz Bass guitar.

The Squier Affinity Series Jazz Bass V has the look and tone that everyone knows and loves, at an ultra-economical price point. Ideal for modern bassists who require an extended low end reach, the highlight of this bass are the growling and punchy Jazz Bass V pickups. The single-coil Jazz Bass V pickups are designed to deliver modern tone and performance from five-string basses with famous guttural midrange and singing high end.

A top load bridge creates a slightly "slinkier" feel by reducing the break angle of the strings over the saddles. The individual saddles can be adjusted for precise intonation along each string. A strong one-piece maple neck enhances vibration transfer from the strings while the rosewood fingerboard offers an elegant cosmetic touch.

Features:
  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and rosewood 20-fret fingerboard
  • Dual single-coil Jazz Bass pickups
  • Vintage-style five-string bridge with single-groove saddles
  • Case not included

    Comments about Squier Affinity Series Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

    THIS IS THE SECOND ONE I HAVE PURCHASED FROM SAM ASH.
    I REGRETTED HAVING TO SELL MY FIRST ONE THAT I BOUGHT WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT.
    THIS IS MY SECOND REVIEW ON THIS BASS SINCE 10/23/2007 AND I WILL SAY THAT IT IS JUST AS GOOD AS MY FIRST ONE!!!

    AGAIN...
    I LOVE EVERY ASPECT OF THIS BASS. GREAT NECK AND STRING SPACING. FINE FRET FINISH, NO SHARP EDGES. I HAVE THE BROWN SUNBURST...BEAUTIFUL! GREAT BALANCE. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD ABOUT THE SQUIRE LINES. AT UNDER $250.00 DOLLARS! WHAT A DEAL FOR A FINE PLAYING 5-STRING BASS. IT IS NOT JUST A BACK UP BASS BUT ALSO A MAIN AXE. IT HAS A REAL VINTAGE FEEL. BUY ONE BEFORE THEY RAISE THE PRICE. P.S. I'VE BEEN PLAYING FOR 50+ YEARS. I FEEL VERY QUALIFIED WITH MY REVUE.THANKS AGAIN FENDER !!!

      Comments about Squier Affinity Series Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

      I just bought this yesterday as an upgrade from the Squire Bronco bass (previous review left), and I am more than satisfied! The neck is not as wide as you would expect for a 5-string making it easy to play and not hard to adjust if used to a 4-string. After only a day of playing, the strings stayed in tune. I love this guitar more than the Bronco. The only change I will be making is the same as my previous model: changing over to flat wound strings. The price is perfect and you will get more than you pay for. One last note, being a jazz bass (slightly larger), you may notice that it fits a little tighter in a soft case as compared to other models. I will be getting a different case soon.

      Comments about Squier Affinity Series Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

      This IS a real Bass. I am 54 years old and have been around the block a couple of times. My other bass is a real '65 precision bass not the vintage re-issue. This bass is comparable to the original. The negative comments I've seen regarding the Squier do not seem to be true for me. It weighs only a pound more than my precision, the pickups perform well even on the B string and it seems to stay in tune. This is not the bass with active pickups. That one did seem very heavy in comparison. Since I have never used active pickups I see no need for them. my Ampeg BA210SP handles it just fine including slap and pop sounds. The price is only a bonus.
