Frequently Asked Questions about Squier Precision Bass

Question: How does the sound of a Squier Precision bass differ from a Jazz bass?
Generally speaking, the Precision bass has a larger, thicker sound than the Jazz bass. The main difference is found in the pickups. While Jazz basses typically have a pair of single coil pickups, the Precision has a split-coil pickup. This actually acts as a humbucker. The pickup provides a thick, wide, compressed tone that is pretty perfect for basslines. Its placement on the body is significant too. It picks up large amounts of harmonic content from the string, increasing the tone even further.
Question: Is the Affinity Series Precision Bass PJ a good choice to learn on?
It is a fantastic bass to learn on! The PJ pickup configuration allows you to experiment with both Precision and Jazz sounds. Value for money is fantastic, build quality is solid and reliable, and it is a lot of fun to play!
Question: What does the 'PJ' of the Squier Affinity Precision Bass PJ stand for?
The 'PJ' stands for 'Precision-Jazz'. This refers to the inclusion of both the customary P-Bass split coil pickup and a Jazz bass single coil in the bass' pickup configuration. This is a very versatile and worthwhile specification!
Question: I want a classic looking P-Bass with a great sound. Is there a Squier model for me?
There definitely is! The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Precision bass more than ticks these boxes for you! It has a cool seventies black-on-black colour scheme with a tinted Maple neck. The neck has black edge binding and great black block inlays. Additional features include period details such as a finger rest and a chrome bridge cover. This bass sounds great, with a Fender-designed split coil pickup for fat humbucking tones. There are also brass saddles in the bridge. These provide further authenticity, resonance and sustain! This Squier P-Bass is a gift to any bassist.
