thanks for the reply,
what i have done is during the process of making this guitar (am making 4 as I go) i have forward shifted the braces, and the bridge i made that fits my other guitars does not sit over the X braces so i have to make a new one with longer wings. i was pretty sure it had to just checking.
regards
Chris

if you also moved the bridge plate you may be in trouble.
