    How similar are the neck dimensions/feel/playability of the Fender Classic 50s, Fender Vintage 57 & the Fender Vintage 62 P Basses?

    I love the feel of the 50s P-Bass; but have yet to find a 57 or 62 to try out.

    The 57 is quite wide with a shallow C configuration and I think, but am not sure that the 62 is slightly narrower and deeper. I go through quite a love hate relationship with mine. It's absolutely gorgeous and sounds awesome, but it is a chore to play.

    Play4zero,

    Nice bass. It sounds like the 57 is very similar to the 50s then. I really like the extra width, and combined with the more shallow neck, it just seems to fit perfect.
