I may be picking up a Kala Mango Baritone but it has a slightly sunken top that runs both in front and behind the bridge. The bridge seems solid to the top and I don't see any other structural damage on the bracing. I am assuming that everthing on the uke is mango laminate. My question is: Is it normally possible to pull the top back to level by heavy humidifying. I realized that it is hard to give a definite answer without seeing it but I would just like an idea whether humidifying is a standard procedure for sunken tops..... TIA

It's worth a try. Bob Taylor of Taylor guitars covers this in a series of YouTube clips.

Thanks Dave.... I did run across those vids in the past. I was thinking that maybe a laminated top like this mango ukulele might be harder to pull up versus a solid top ukulele.
