Hello! I am building a stewmac 000 kit. Because I am stupid I glued the top brace almost an inch above where it should be. So instead of being about 3/8 inch above the #1 brace, it is about 1 1/4 inches above it (closer the the neck).

My choices are:
1. Try to unglue it and re-do it.
2. Add another brace between it and the #1 brace, essentially overbracing the top. (Safe but sure option)
3. Ignore it and not worry.

What are your thoughts? This is my first build, I am learning a lot, and I am ok with this guitar not being perfect. I just don't want it to fall apart!

Thanks
Rich

Yes I think it still clears the neck block. Thanks for the quick response!
