    I am interested in a C-Extension for my new bass. I just don't know about how much this is going to cost me. I'm not interested in a B-Extension. Also, how much more is a chromatic extension. Thank you.

    First, in order to fit an Extension, the Scroll must be below the plane of the neck otherwise they have to cut the Scroll. See here; http://www.kcstrings.com/bsscr2-72a.jpg ..Price depends on who does the work. I have a single latch Ext. and it ran me $1,250. fitted from Arnold Schnitzer. I love the Ext. he installed.. Heres a pic of it; http://www.kensmithbasses.com/DoubleBasses/MorelliBass/MorelliBass.htm

    The Chromatic will cost more. Make sure your Bass has plenty of power and Clarity on the 'E' sting now so you can enjoy the lower notes down to 'C'.
