  4. between 30 and 50.

    Call guitar shops, quotes over the phone for pretty standard work should not be hard to get.

    Also, try using the search function. You can find a lot of information there.

    I did but I couldnt seem to fina a quote
  6. Yes pretty much time = money.
    It all depends on what they want to charge for their time.
    Why not do it yourself? You can get a file pretty cheap.

    You would probably have to buy 4 files to get the correct diameter for each string. While the job appears simple, its not that easy. I believe now you can buy a badass that has already got the saddle grooves.

    The shop I go to did it for free when I took my bass in for some other work... if you have a good working relationship with a shop, they will do more for you, for less, as a repeat customer. Find a good shop with a good tech, your life will be much easier.

    Avoid the big boxes... make friends and nerd out about gear all day.
