    Now I feel better about the one I created when I went from a Right to a Left handed bridge.

    I thought "the crack" was more due to putting a vintage style bridge where there was a modern standard bridge before. Maybe not. That's what happened on one of my latest projects (see pic), which was a MIM body retrofitted with a vintage style bridge. None of my Warmoth partscasters have a crack, and neither does my Baja 50s.

    I know y'all have been discussing cracks for eons, but I've only been here two years, so cut me some slack. ;)

    Yup!

    Hooped as in screwed, f***ed up or similar words, phrases to indicate a lack of musical talent in this case. But I'm still keeping the guitar.

    yeah, that's the best approach... I found a great way to take care of issues with a guitar... change your mind... done it a lot.. works every time.. and cheap.. Phew doesn't cost a cent..
