Here's what Fender say about the Affinity Jazz 5 String
A great five string start
The Affinity Series™ Jazz Bass® V (five-string) is a value-priced version of the world famous Fender® Jazz Bass® guitar. It has the look and tone that everyone knows and loves, at an ultra-economical price point. Ideal for modern bassists who require an extended low end reach, the highlight of this bass are the growling and punchy Jazz Bass V pickups.
One-piece Maple neck with rosewood fingerboard
A strong one-piece maple neck enhances vibration transfer from the strings while the rosewood fingerboard offers an elegant cosmetic touch.
Single-coil Jazz Bass V Pickups
The single-coil Jazz Bass V pickups are designed to deliver modern tone and performance from five-string basses with famous guttural midrange and singing high end.
Top Load Bridge
A top load bridge creates a slightly "slinkier" feel by reducing the break angle of the strings over the saddles. The individual saddles can be adjusted for precise intonation along each string.
