The method I describe is one I have used on a storm damaged guitar body.
During hurricane Andrew the roof of my shop was partially damaged and a few guitar bodies got several hours of salt water rain, as did my milling machine. I soaked and dried the guitar several times, 3 I think, eventually the salt stopped coming to the surface, I sanded the guitar out, finished it, beautiful guitar.

If you run into stock warp-age when you finish, heat and pressure can be used to straighten it.
The grain will be raised and the inletting may be tight, but a little sandpaper will handle that
