This Cedar Top Seagull came to the bench with the bridge already off and quite a hump where it once sat. The guitar was left in the trunk for a few days in a NC summer. The hump has come down quite a bit and I'm now seeking advice. You can see in the pics where the wood is missing on the top and is still attached to the bridge. The bridge plate, braces, and top all seem to be in good shape, except where the top wood is missing, and some small top cracks in the bridge location from when the bridge lifted. With the bridge sitting in the correct spot and the front edge flat against the top the hump causes the back edge of the bridge to still sit just proud of 2/32 above the top.
What is the best way to go about this repair?
I will answer any questions you may have that will help in this repair.
