Hi all, I have a 15-year old Englehardt student bass which I purchased in good condition in 1999 or so for $1000. I've played it on and off over the years (I'm primarily an electric player). It's set up for orchestral playing I'm guessing, since the action is SUPER high off the neck, and it's hard as heck to play fingerstyle (which would be my preference). What I'm wondering is whether it's worth investing money in fixing the action to make it play better, or whether I should sell it and try to find another one that plays better? I was told many years ago that for $800 a luthier would saw the neck off, bolt in a shim to lower the action, replace or at least reposition the sound post, give it a new bridge, and a good set of nylon-wound strings. Does this seem like a reasonable idea?? I have no idea what I'm doing, so any advice would be fantastic. Thanks!!
