Hi Folks,

I've gone a line on a 1980s Rick 360/12 with toaster pickups and a 12 saddle bridge. 12 saddle bridge looks unique and I wanted to know if anyone can help me identify where it came from and its characteristics (guitar is far from me i'll be purchasing without playing).

Attached below is a photo of the bridge. Not the securing nuts above the bridge and the polished saddles with deep strings slots.

The seller just says he bought it like that so who knows.

Obviously a custom job.
I don't see anything really wrong with that, except the entire bridge looks a little too far forward and should be slid back toward the tail a few millimeters. You could always replace that with a 6-saddle bridge (or a new 12-saddle bridge) if it's not to your liking.

Toaster pickups sound glorious on a 12-string guitar, and will give you an authentic '60s sound (with flat-wound strings).
