So, Pit, I've come across a dilemma of sorts.

I'll cut to the chase, my dad says I get $300 towards anything due to him having a good year at work so far.

Option 1: I have a friend who is endorsed by Fender and can get the guitar I'm looking at, Fender Pawn Shop '72, for $550. With the $300 I'd only have to spend $250 out of pocket.

Option 2: Use the money to build my effects set up (which is almost nonexistent at this point). I don't really have an idea of what I need yet because there isn't any NEED per say. I might end up spending it on a volume pedal, a reverb, and an EQ pedal.

So, which would YOU do if faced with the same situation?

EDIT: It wouldn't be my first, or even second guitar. I have an Epiphone Dot and a PRS SE Custom 24.

Yes, it's just one song in particular, theres no shredding or fast solos.
It is a mellow, instrumental, clean, song.

Eh, I'd go with the guitar. I'm not a huge fan of effects, but eq and volume are never bad to have.

The fender by far, I've never played one myself but a 72 Fender would ****ing sing I imagine. Effects pedals are going to be there forever but a 72 fender, for THAT price is just too good to pass up. Buy it, buy it now.

Wait, so your dad is paying you for doing well at a job which is also paying you? I'm quite confused by that...

He bought my sister an Ipod with some of the extra money he has had and decided that I get something of equal value.

This. Also, I guess you should get the guitar. If you don't like it, I reckon you could sell it and get the $300 back to put towards your effects.
All the way from Palm Springs, just out of detox.

My local shop wont have it in for a while, so I'm not sure when i'd be able to give it a test play...would the Fender Enforcer pickup on the bridge be much different from the factory bridge pickup on my PRS?
