neck reset- my naive question of the day
I think, but am not absolutely certain, that my nice F mandolin needs a neck reset. The bridge is as low as it can go and the truss rod has been adjusted to bring the strings as low as possible. Still the action is higher than I'd like.
Diagnostics aside, is there such a thing as ballpark cost estimate of a competent reset? Are resets all essentially the same "procedure" or do they vary depending on the neck joint and/or the severity of the angle? I'm curious to know since an expensive (by my standards) repair is out of the question at the moment.
Thanks in advance for answering a question that probably doesn't have a good answer.
