Share my test results:
1: 12 holes tie at bridge will change sound greatly.
2: 6 holes tie at bridge will not change sound a lot.

No.
Now I know you mean 6 holes at the bridge. Not 12 holes...

No, what I meant was changing the nut string spacing will NOT change sound quality, with either 6 hole or 12 hole tie-block.

Maybe your results are based on your guitar.
My results are based on the guitars from Otto Vowinkel, German V Rubio, Kenny Hill and Juan Hernandez.
