    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.
