A Brilliant Beginner's Bass
stevo873, 05.01.2020
I have been playing guitar for a while, but found that I was becoming quite bored with the instrument. I had never really played the bass but had always had an interest in learning, so please keep in mind that I am not an expert, but a beginner.

I have had good experience with Squier instruments in the past and this bass is no exception. The bass is well built and I really like the look of it overall. I went with the brown sunburst option and I was happy with the finish. The machine heads, volume/tone controls and bridge are all securely fitted as well.

In terms of sound quality the neck pickup is fantastic; warm and full of life. However the bridge pickup on it's own is quite thin and I found it to be lacking. A great feature of the bass is that both pickups can be combined so there is a large variety of tones that can be achieved.

Overall, I am really happy with my purchase. The build and sound quality of the instrument is fantastic. My only complaint would be the weak sounding bridge pickup but it is difficult to complain given the price - €222.

Bass arrived in time, no delays ocurated

I'm using this bass for live gigs..

If you're beginer, and you just started playing bass I highly recomend buying it.

Pros
- Great looking shiny finish
- Tuners are really great (considering price)
- Nice pick and bass slap
- Includes quality strings
- Thin neck

- I won't say this is a pron, but it came well protected considering the outdoor shipping cardboard that was ripped by the UPS..

Cons
- Cheap looking white plastic on front
- Pickup edges are very sharp (if you miss the bass slap and you unintentionaly slap the pickup side there's a pretty good chance that you're gonna cut yourself)

In total, it's a good guitar with great pickups for this price

exceptional bass
Karatzas, 04.01.2021
sturdy, quality bass guitar, perfect for beginners.
I bought this for recording purposes, the tone is great. It is built very well, it survived several drops and does not scratch easily. Comes very close to the authentic fender feel overall very happy with my purchase.
pros: - great quality (great price)
- very low noise (when both pickups are on)
cons: locking tuners would be a nice addition (although the bass stays in tune remarkably well)

Un bon choix pour un débutant.
Christold, 02.10.2019
j'ai 66 ans et je me suis remis à la guitare en prenant ma retraite, il y un peu plus de deux ans.
je me suis offert deux guitares, une folk pour apprendre et une électrique suédoise à six cordes pour jouer mes rifs préférés. je joue le plus souvent dans mon appartement. Il me manquait une basse pour être comblé. Voila, c'est fait.
J'ai choisis cette Fender Squier Affinity Jazz pour apporter le registre grave en accompagnement quand je joue avec mon fils et ses amis à la maison, pour le plaisir d'une petite réunion en musique le weekend.
Je l'utilise avec un ampli Blakstar Unity 60 Bass Combo (pris chez Thomann également), là, ça décoiffe un peu, mais sans excès, je ne pousse pas trop la bête affin de ne pas trop gêner mes voisins.
J'ai été surpris par la belle qualité de fabrication de cette basse, A ce prix là, je m'attendais à pire. Le gros MI sonne bien chaud, les attaques sont propre avec toutes les autres cordes. Je prends vraiment du plaisir à jouer sur cette basse. C'est un bon choix pour moi,
Le service Thomann et son suivi des commandes est des plus sérieux et rapide que j'ai connu, ce qui m'a encore décidé à me servir chez eux.
Merci Thomann.
