I started to build a semi hollow guitar and a big problem occerd after I glued the neck the string hight is 1/4in at 12th fret and goes up from there. The bridge is bottomed out and the first couple frets are just fine but the rest need help. I just want to fix it if you can help please do.

Could it be that your neck is warped? or twisted? Look down it to see if it's straight with just a hint of a bow upwards around the first position. When you glued the neck on, did it move? You may have to take it back off and reset it.

Well unless the neck is wicked bowed. [slap a straight edge on it and see. You cant always eyeball it] It sounds like you misset the neck. Your going to need to remove, and recut the neck angle.
