The distance from the nut to the 12th fret should be the same as from the 12th fret to the bridge. You mentioned that there is almost a two inch difference.

In the event all is lost, all is not lost if you or someone you know is handy, you could use all the parts of the guitar and start over with a new box and build it correctly.
