first off, i am mostly a double-bassist but i am looking to get an electric bass. i want something simple. i'd like a thick neck, full scale and just one pickup. it's also gotta look cool! my search has brought me to the fender '51 reissue. i've seen a few come and go here in the classifieds and am thinking of grabbing one next time one pops up. the thing is, i've also been looking at the squier classic vibe which is the knock-off version of the '51 reissue. this seems enticing since i don't play electric in a band and most likely don't need whatever makes it better plus i'm frugal. but what's the big difference? now i don't want this to be a fender vs. squier hate thread - just factual differences. if it's just a pickup thing, i could swap it out no problem if i dont like it. i've played a reissue but i won't get a chance to try the squier before buying so i am trusting you guys to help me with this. is the neck similar? is the feel similar? any help would be appreciated.
