That one's pretty iffy.... if if everyting came out cool it still might not be worth? Some are and some aren't, not a big market for old 12str's. I reset the neck/restored a 71' Guild 12er, plays good yet can't say it was worth the effort. However, the 59' LG3 I restored a year ago, that's a whole nudder topic. If it were local, maybe? if if. lol and no help

I was playing my B2512N (12 string Gibson) and noticed this thread - I think the bridge has been changed to a 6 string style....and I doubt it would hold 12 strings!

 

This is a Gibson bridge for you (altered to get it nicely in tune and bone saddle - removed wobbly old adjustable saddle...

BK, That's a trap-tail guitar. The bridge just holds the saddle, and the strings dead-end at the trapeze. Gibson went back and forth between trap-tail and pin bridges throughout the 1960's on the B-45's.
