I think I've made a big mistake. I recently bought an American Standard and have since discovered that the neck is crooked, slightly bent to the left. The neck had been reset, apparently really badly. My luthier is pretty confident he can get the strings lined up with the fingerboard and repostion the bridge and sound post to their proper postion on the bass. The bass sounds beautiful, warm, loud, no buzzing, both my teacher and the luthier were impressed. I really like the bass, and I think when the work is finished, it will play and sound great. I just wonder what will happen if or when I try to sell it. I paid $2000, it came with a Realist pickup and a nice bow, the work will cost about $500. Am I in bad shape when I try to sell it? I will absolutely not buy another bass without a bass luthier inspection...what a mistake. Has anybody been through this?
