My 19 yo daughter has been playing on the church band for 4 years, first 3 in Florida and now the past 4 months here in TN - she was really nervous about playing here in the Music capital of the world as there were a bunch of really good players that rotated through - she finally took the plunge after spring semester was over and the guys have been terrific mentors for her. Well, one of the guys is a Fender tech and I asked him to find me a good deal on a Strat for her for Christmas - bad idea, he found a great deal right away and he got it all set up and I of course gave it to her already and she loves it(so much for Christmas). 2018 Vintage 50's Strat MIM - he totally upgraded electronics, PU etc. Well, we have since decided that we wanted to try building her own Telecaster as a Father-Daughter project. My intent was to buy a $200 kit and build it over winter break(then next summer build her dream Tele), well our good friend the Fender guru talked us out of that idea and promised he would be there every step of the way to help teach us if we bought what she really wanted and built that. So I being the anal retentive person that I am have already found and ordered everything we need - thanks for all the good info I found here - the only question mark - Pickups Fender Tex-Mex or the Fender Custom Shop Texas specials - I bought the Tex-Mex and told her fall semester dean's list gets her the Texas Specials. So all good right - we will have everything arrive over the next 2 -3 weeks and be all set for our winter break project - heck even ordered a robot car and FM radio for her to learn soldering on as she wants to do that herself - but wait this Dad is totally anal - I bought $180 Squier Infinity Telecaster off Reveb today so I can tear it apart and put it back together just I am sure I know what am I am doing when we do her build. So this leaves me only one question: Will my wife divorce me or kill me when the Squier arrives next week?
