I am a long-time bass guitar player looking to make the move to the upright. I am enlisted USAF, so I'm not exactly raking it in making an Upton or some antique piece out of the question. I have, however, found a restored Engelhardt that I really like the sound and playability of, but the price-tage has me concerned. The shop owner told me it had a broken neck that he had to set with long lag screws, it was completely re-finished, bridge redone, and new strings. He's wanting $1850 for it... Now, I have looked over the internet and $1850 is about the most expensive I have seen a new Engelhardt going for, but I also know that setups are a must when you first buy an upright which can run into $200-$300. I have also been told that the repair may not lost a long time. I really don't have the money to put into constant repairs or an all out replacement, so I need to know if this is a good price for what I am looking at. Also, if it is not, what would be a good offering near the $1000-$1500 range?
