I'm in the market for a SS. As a man that bleeds Fender, I wanna know the difference between these two basses. Can also take comparisons with the Mikey Way or Pawn Shop. Having never owned a SS, I question whether or not it is worth the $800 for the Fender if I can get the VM for $300 and maybe mod it for less than I would have paid for the standard Fender. Thoughts?
