Is that a new guitar? Might be a loose brace.

I repaired a Little Martin with a loose bridge and bump in the bridge area. It had loose bracing which caused the bump to form and resulted in bridge wings lifting. Braces glued, belly reduction at 160 degrees F, bridge re-glue, and we're back in business.

Little Martin has less bracing. No bowtie plates nor lower tie between the X.

The top mis-shape was more than half corrected by the heat and belly correction plates and clamp torqueing.

(Yes it's pink. I'll be donating it to the local school music department. Not my color.)
