Of relative size and origin
Origin: Bricks and blocks are manufactured whereas stones and rocks are not; pretty obvious if you speak English.
Size: Relative to both categories. In the first: bricks are small enough to be picked up by the average hand: whereas two hands would usually be used to lift a block; now apply this test respectively to stones and rocks.
Specsavers: Dumbos and deceitful
Vision Express: Clever, understanding and polite. Given the problem I have, mentioned below about the bridge measurement and subsequent weight, the manager also acknowledge that the lens could have been thinner and has offered me a new pair free.

Bought four of these only to find the bridge measurement is out of sync with common UK standards, which is the minimum width between the lenses. This measurement goes from half the width of the rims that holds each lens. This model, although sold as 19mm works out at 23mm. This extra width means the optical centres are off by 4mm resulting in extra thickening of the lens to accommodate the fitting.

This only became apparent when I had the prescriptions fitted and became a big problem with the higher optics, resulting in spectacles that weighed 65g. As I had three pairs made up, at a cost of £600, the suppliers have credited me two pairs and I returned the unused one.
This credit of approx £240 will cover a new Saville row frame. Details to follow.

How I got to buy this model
A bit of a mystery as! it would seem, the twelth fret should be halfway along the string to provide forman octave higher.
The theory is that a shorter string i.e. half the length would vibrate higher than an octave as under the same tension it would be stiffer. This applies moreso to thicker strings. So the saddle is moved a bit further frm the 12th to compensate. Ideally each string would have it's own adjustable saddle, which is the case on many electric guitars; on acoustic's this isn't employed, which is regretable and questionable.
On the Taylor C356CE the 'tusk' saddle is elaborately moulded for each string
The 12th fret is 12.75" (12&24/32nds) from the nut, the distances from the 12th fret to the saddle are:
E (1&2) are exactly 12.75"
G (5) is 1/32nd longer
E (11) is 2/32nds longer
Still the guitar cannot be tuned very well, the compensation does not give an octave at 12th fret. There is a question as to the age of the strings and if they have stretched un-uniformly.
The other is inherent in the nut also has a similar effect and stiffens the end of the string when played open, apparently the nut is often set back an extra mil to compensate but not variable as in the saddle ????

5th April 2016 Noticed a chip in the top right corner of the screen. Haven't a clue as to when and how it occured. here are some images.
Where duality is a non-conflicting situation, the decison whether to accept or reject no longer exists.
