We recommend the Fender Squier range for numerous reasons. Here are just a few.
-These basses are really well built for the money. They have quality finishes and play and sound as good as many basses that are more expensive.
-They are set up and play beautifully, this is vital for beginners as it makes the physical process of learning easier, therefore encourages kids to continue on playing. We have seen so many cheap basses that are simply unplayable, even we cant play them as the string heights are ridiculously high. Don't waste your money on some No name bass that simply hinders your kids enjoyment of playing music
-The resale on Fender Squire basses and guitars is excellent. We are often asked "what if Johnny gives up?"....Answer... Sell the gear. Fender Squires carry an excellent resale value, you can easily resell these set ups and get around 2/3rds of your money back if need be. You wont find it so easy trying to sell a no name brand!!

This is a great way to get into playing bass. The Affinity basses are great to play and through the Fender Rumble 15 you get excellent tone from the word go.
