If the price doesn't go up much, this might be a good way to score some original WRHB's.

Buy for $600ish, put whatever pickups you have lying around on it, cut a new pickguard, then sell it for whatever it sells for.

Lets say you pay $750 for this with shipping. You put on parts you have lying around (price = $0, since most of us have stock pickups from other guitars lying around somewhere), cut a pickguard yourself (price = $0 using what you have at home). You should still be able to get $500 for it used... and voila, you just got original WRHB's for $250.

Wait. Unless this guitar has had parts replaced, pups, whatever, please do not molest it. Sad I'm no expert but, if all original, it's priceless as-is. I'm certain Joan would agree. Perhaps violently.

A vintage 1960's Gibson Melody Maker SG body style 12 string guitar. The original pickups are gone and someone added two 1970's Fender Humbucker pickups.

This is the first thing I thought. But we don't see the headstock meet the neck in the auction pics, do we?

I know the EDS1275 have 3 piece laminated necks, I assume, to reduce the likelihood of headstock snapping.
Looking at the 7th picture, the neck is a much paler wood than the body. Don't know what kind of wood it is (maybe maple?) though it doesn't look 3 piece.
