I have absolutely zero experience building a guitar. Recently I thought it would be a fun tinker toy to have something I created and can swap pups in and out of in the quest for tone. I would rather swap around and experiment on this "parts-o-caster" instead of my #1 and then if I found something I really liked I would do it to my #1. Anyway, I have great attention to detail and have good patience...is this a project that requires more experience than I have (I have zero)? Any pointers? I plan to have a strat body with an orange or trans orange body (think faded fiesta red circa '62), soft V neck with rosewood board. I don't even own a soldering iron, so I'd have to learn that skill too. I think it would be an educational process and fun at the same time. Should I go for it or just buy a less expensive strat and use it as my guinea pig to do with what I wish.
