A Beginner-Friendly Bass You'll Want to Keep Playing Forever

The Squier Affinity Jazz electric bass brings Fender quality to your fingertips at an affordable price. This 4-string beauty boasts a comfortable alder body with gripping heart-bat graphics, two crystal-clear single-coil Jazz Bass pickups, a bright and inviting maple bolt-on neck, a silky smooth rosewood fingerboard, 20 medium jumbo frets, independent volume controls to blend your pickups, and classy-looking chrome hardware. Get your fingers and ears ready for smooth playability and warm jazzy tone.

Squier for Starters

If you're shopping around for an electric bass but haven't found a compelling choice, Squier is a great place to start. You get a taste of the Fender tone and feel without breaking your bank. This bass features a warm and articulate tone that works well for Jazz players, but this isn't an instrument that's easy to pigeonhole into just one genre.

Striking Alder Body

The Jazz body shape will stick to your front like glue. This axe's contour will never get in the way of your fingers no matter where you play on its neck. As a guitar tonewood, alder boasts a clear, warm, and well-balanced resonance that's neither too dark nor too bright. That means this bass produces full-bodied tone that simply loves to fill the room.

Two Single-coil Jazz Bass Pickup

Capturing the resonance and style of your performance are a pair of single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Both of these bad boys are designed to soak in the warmth and full-bodied tone of each string. Every fret your fingers hit will achieve a crystal-clear articulation that just oozes from your amplifier. Utilize your independent volume controls to blend your pickups to your liking, and brighten or darken your signal with your master tone control.

Maple Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard

Get your fingers ready for 20 medium jumbo frets housed in a bright sounding maple neck in a cozy C profile. Each fret harnesses a close and tight action for smooth licks and booming grooves. A rosewood fingerboard yields a welcoming feel for each finger.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "How is this even possible"
Overall: I ordered this bass with Low Expectations. When I Pulled the Bass out of the Box my Jaw Dropped. I got it in Lake Placid Blue and it is gorgeous. All I had to do was tune it and it sounds great. You would swear this bass is 3x the price. The frets are great no sharp edges like some cheaper guitars I've bought, I highly recommend this bass it's great for all skill levels you will not be let down there's nothing to lose for the money.
