Post subject:  Top Plate brace location

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!

if it can clear the neck block your ok if the neck block is in the way you will have to remove it

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