12 string restoration project? Watch

    Hello,
    After much nagging and pestering my Dad finally brought home his old 12 string guitar from his work. It's an Eko 12 string - I think it's over 40 years old (and probably hasn't been played in 20 years).

    It's in a right state -- one of the side joints is coming apart and needs re-gluing, deep cracks on the reverse of the neck, cracks on the front panel and near the heel on the back, 3 broken strings, some of the bridge things are missing/replaced, and just generally lots of bruises and slight dents around the edges.


    Is it worth repairing it? I guess there is some sentimental value, and it looks pretty classy. Does anyone know if it is repairable and how much it would be?

    Many thanks!
