I had initially played one of these and been quite impressed with the tone that came out of it. I later got one on a trade and am now using it. I must say that it is a great bass for the buck. I have not had anything go wrong with it. Eventually, I want to replace the pickups, the bridge, and the strings. The tone is great, but the pickups pick up some extra noise. The build of this thing is absolutely fantastic, and it's a joy to play.

I chose and bought this bass after comparing it to the Fender five string standard jazz bass and the four string versions and found the Affinity five string to be equal in quality construction as the Fender versions. I am playing this bass in church services. The sound is impeccably Fender at an very economical price. It is, in my opinion, a professional quality instrument. Go ahead and buy it for your kids but if you play regularly like I do you need this instrument in your arsenal. For the price it can be your 'go to' bass if you cannot afford an American Fender.
For a standard jazz version of the Fender jazz bass it meets its big brother on sound, construction, and playability.
Very high quality.The price is far below the intrinsic value of the instrument. This is a high quality bass for the money

this bass is a must have! it's as good as a fender - the only problem is the fifth string is really dull because of the tuner placement. other than that it is a great five string bass.
