Carvin AB-45 with loose braces

Chris Smart, from Robot Monster Guitars, brought this Carvin AB-45 bass  into the shop a few days ago with a sunken top.  Looking in the neck pocket quickly revealed the problem.  Both braces, or tone bars, had come loose in front of the bridge.  Luckily cleaning and gluing is fairly easy with access through the neck pocket.
