spine pain?

I just received the custom made T&T Horizon Series fly rod that I won on Ebay. The materials all look high quality and are assembled with care. The first thing I did with the rod after I unwrapped it was to check the spine...well, what I found out (if I am doing the spine check thing right) is that the butt section guides were in line with the spine, but the tip guides were more or less 90 degrees off the spine!!! damn... My question to you rod builders is: am I crazy to try to remove the tip guides and replace them in the correct position to the spine? Any suggestions or thoughts on the importance of spine alignment? Over on the Washington Fly Fishing website, there is some thought that the spine is not so important as some might think. In fact, one post said Sage marks their blanks with spots for guide locations and these spots do not line up with the spine...I'm confused.
