Average price for a New Fingerboard Job by a competent Luthier
is anywhere from $600 to $900 bucks, depending on whether you need a new bridge or not.You may be able to save some bucks by ordering the Fingerboard yourself, Bob steered me to a great Place, Luthier Merchantile. The sent me a quality fingerboard at wholesale price.So check out that Luthier Directory, and ask around.
