What's a good song (or solo) that hangs out in the 12+ area, I'm looking for something that's very simple (not tons of legato) and preferably a common song that I've probably already heard.

While not a solo, the first thing that came to mind is the intro to Sweet Child O' Mine by GnR. As far as solos go, sometimes it just depends on where you play it, point being that some of the higher notes for the deeper strings are far up the neck, wheres on lighter strings they can be farther down. David Gilmour from Pink Floyd would be a good guitarist to study, solos to songs like Comfortably Numb, Money, and Another Brick in the Wall pt 2. Honestly rock songs from the 70's had solos that would hang around in that 12-15 fret range in minor pentatonic. Hope this helps!

Thats the first song that came to my mind aswell lol. That and that sweet little riff that James Hetfield plays in the middle of Master of Puppets (the first thing he plays over the top off that acoustic riff before he switches to full on solo mode). The solo James plays at the end of Outlaw Torn is another easy one thats played around the 12th fret.

Comfortably Numb is mainly played at the 7-10 fret area.

TS: Listen to music. If you hear solos that are clearly being played on the higher end of the fretboard, learn them.
