    Yep, the slots line up fine when that first notch is on the first fret.

    I knew it was for checking the level of the fretboard before leveling the frets just assumed there was an issue because it didn't line up.

    Again thanks for your help mate, as you can tell I'll need all the help I can get on this build haha!

    Frankie is spot on. I watched a YouTube video of a bloke with a rule that went to the nut and, when I checked mine, instantly assumed there was an issue with the guitar or rule. As it turns out the only issue was the fool trying to use the tool he does not know how to use!

    Thanks heapsfor your help Wokka and Frankie and I'm terribly sorry for wasting your time. If anything I hope you got a good laugh out of it I did.
    All good bud, it’s what the forum is here for. It’s not like you did anything really stupid like, strip the fretboard and reshape the tenon on your EXA kit, screw the Dingo tone coats up four times, and wire your emgs the wrong way around.
    Project list:

    #1: 16/001: PBG EXA-1. Complete, finish fail, tweaking set up.
    #2: FrankenWashie Resurrection. Complete, playing with set up and fiddlin'.
    #3: 16/002: PBG SV-1. Final colour coats, Inlay Work.
    #4: 16/003: The Cliché Black LP. Still trying to get black flat.
    #5: 16/004: TLA-TH-TBA. Final coat, assembly and set up.
    #6: 17/001: The IB-Freebie. Covers, Shielding, Neck finals.
    #7: FrankenLab Experiment 2. The Silent Build.

    Or drop your finished body before wiring it up and attaching the neck 90cm onto concrete. All been there .
