Default Iím going in !

But carefully! So before I start I have a guitar where the top sunk in a bit it was pretty bad and I bought it that way . It was something I didnít look at hard and when it came in it wasnít the guitar I thought it was meaning I had no idea it was a jumbo . It looked sweet sounded great but the only thing that caught my eye was the action and saddle height . Later I discovered the warp in the top . The builder didnít think it was possible to fix or fix warped tops in general. So since Iím an outside the box fix it type I decided to take it on .

So after a year or 2 of only playing it 5 minutes when I got it I removed the strings and humidified it in its case in my room keeping the humidity constant best I could .

So it had a 1/4 inch dip in the sound hole to bridge area itís now about a 1/8 inch . It came with a bridge doctor or whatever its first given name was from manufacturer so that might clue to the maker lol

I decided to take some pics inside and F! If I didnít find some water marks . On the tail block end . Well that said exactly what happened to this poor guitar . Lucky itís still in very good condition other wise .

So Iím thing about building a coffin or if you more experienced builders and tinkers have a better way to ani up the humidity to very slowly bring the top up that extra push please share your thoughts !
Thanks [emoji4]

Hopefully no wise cracks from redir (). It was a big baggie. Pan of water with a fan blowing over it. The individual levels are removable to get bigger items in.
