Default Repair Gianinni Or Sell

I have a 1970s Giannini classical guitar with carved head stock and Brasilian rosewood body. It is very nice except the bridge is pulling up. I am wondering if I should sell it or have the bridge repaired and a new bone nut and saddle installed.

Those are fairly minor repairs/ changes. I’d have the work done. Selling it with the bridge pulling up might be tough anyway. My first guitar was a Giannini! They’re decent guitars.

I'd go for the repairs too, pretty straightforward work and you're unlikely to get what you think the guitar's worth if you sell it in its current state.
