Worth fixing my bass

    I have a Fender Squier left handed bass with a bowed neck and one working volume pot. Anybody know the range of prices to have it fixed or is it worth doing so? Just curious

    Where are you located? Prices vary widely depending on location.

    It really depends what's wrong with it. If the neck is bowed because it needs a setup, that's fairly inexpensive or done at home with a few tools and a little knowledge. It's the truss rod is broken, there it's likely not worth fixing.

    Assuming it's a passive bass and the tone pot isn't working, that's a relatively easy and inexpensive fix as well.

    Is the truss rod working? The pot is an easy fix, but the neck could be a problem. Try adjusting it. If it doesn't help, find yourself a new or used bass and carry on. Good luck.
