: looking for suggestions, i'm an amateur jazz bassist that owns a good sounding kay bass and it needs a fret board badly + bridge. it sounds good but trying to figure out if i should put money into this or go for the glory of an carved bass. anybody knows price of putting a fret board on. anyone know sellers/repairers of uprights in new england area?? thanks tim
I would concur with Bob and Reed, definitely worth putting the work/money into a Kay bass. Even if you are considering a carved bass, you'll fetch between $1800 to $2500 (depending on the condition) for your Kay to put toward your new carved bass. As far as a good technician is concerned, I have had excellent work done by David Gage in NYC. While it might be a three to four hour drive for you, I would certainly make that drive for good work if it were my bass. They do excellent work and are excellent people to do business with.
