That bridge plate addition was put in to address the same problem, I'm supposing, but since the 'tech' didn't want to lift the shell plug to remove the center bolt for the installation of this stacked plate that would best butt up against the top brace, they opted for this solution, leaving a gap between the new plate and top brace, wherein the center bolt remains. How to tighten a nut on it? With the additional weight of the stacked plate, how will the sound be affected by adding the additional weight of a nut to each side bolt? I would find lightweight nuts, and in the gap between bridge center and guitar top, slide around some sandpaper, clear the dust, squeeze in either thick superglue or wood glue, and clamp.

Disclaimer: the experts now have ample reason/opportunity to intervene.
