Ever have a build that kicks your ass?

Working on the 2nd nut and saddle.

Epoxy failed on the rod bridge.

Drilled a hole in the wrong spot that I have to cover up

The nut - beginning of the fretting - started too far down the neck so I put a piece of fretwire above it to protect the wood and it was too high and I had to file it down....

It's going to be cool when it's done, but I will be happy to see it out the door.
