    The strings would be VERY close together.

    Hipshot can make you a 12 string bridge. Similar to the 15 string bridge in the attached pic.

    I would say it is physical impossible to fit 12 strings in the same space that 4 string basses normally have at the nut.
    Just what were you thinking?
