“Don’t Ya Just Hate It”, when you find a nice ittle Resonant Stainless Steel Steamer Basket, build a lovely Camphor Laurel Neck, coat it with True-Oil for the first time, get to the final stage of adding the Bridge and Strings, to a 2 String, 22inch Short Scale Chugger, and find out you’ve completely “STUFED UP” the measurements from Nut to Bridge.
The Bowl will probably now become a 3 String Build, and the Neck will become part of a 2 String Wooden Box Chugger.
You’d think after doing over 400 builds, one would be immune to making mistakes like this, but sadly “Not So”, and it now moves into the “Problem Solving Folder”. <;-{

"Thanks UJ", my Indian name at the moment is "Piffed Off", I was looking forward to this lovely combination of Neck & Bowl, I'm sure it would have sounded great, but lack of attention prevented this from happening.  strong>;-(

Dang, AGP. It is pretty. My Indian name is 'Screws Up Plenty'? Could your possibly be, "Stuffs-Up Plenty?" Naw no way. Maybe, "Stuffs Up Infrequently"?
