I could have gone out and picked up a MIA version cheaper than the one I built, but in my opinion it wouldn't have been as nice. let me know if you have any questions, but here's what a i picked for the build
Warmoth body in candy apple red
warmoth SRV profile neck (5A birds eye maple)
lollar P90 for Jazzmaster
I got most of my electronics from all parts in houston (CTS pots, cloth wiring, orange drop caps, etc)
USA tremolo and a buzz stop (which I eneded up removing)
replaced the stock bridge a few months in with a mastery bridge.
Also, set up is not the easiest, but whe it's right, it's good.

Probably closer to some of my humbucker guitars than fender single coils. Thy clean up nicely though and are amazing, but I have yet to find a Lollar pickup that I haven't fallen in love with
