    Trying to identify the make

    I am considering purchasing an acoustic 120string guitar, but the make is unknown to the owner. It is brown and the only unique feature is the bridge. I am trying to post the image now. I guess it is attached, don't really know. Hope it is, I can't tell.
    If anyone can help or point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    I can't help you identify the guitar, but welcome to the forum!

    It might help to attach a larger photo. That one is tiny.

    Oh, come on. Is noone gonna make a joke about the 120 string guitar?
    ZT, where are you?

    All joking aside, welcome to AxeTalk, 12SM. I'm guessing by the size of that picture that you took it with a very old cellphone? (I'm guessing because my old cell-phone gave pictures that size.)
    As AT said, bigger pictures would help us help you. Also, more pictures. The bridge might be unique, but a full-body picture would help, as well as a picture of the headstock, and any binding that might be on the neck or body.
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    Welcome--I love 12 strings--but I've never played a 120 string guitar--that would be a pain to do string changes.
    We'd need to see more of the guitar--although I think I've seen bridges like that before--but it could be a knock off or something like that.

    Looks like a Gibson Dove bridge. Can't be sure without better pics.

    It does--but if the owner doesn't know the brand it was more likely a knock off
