What could I expect to pay to have binding replaced of a set neck solid body?

Thanks

Don't matter now. I'm having her done. Plus more. It should be nice once I figure out what to do for pickups.

I've never had it done, so hopefully someone who has will chime in. I'm thinking a hundred bucks for some reason but it depends on who you have doing the work and the quality of the guitar. I have 3 luthiers that I would trust to do the work and I would take it to them for estimates. If it's a Taylor it goes to the Taylor authorized luthier to avoid any future warranty issues.

I have a guy that used to work for Waylon and Ricky Skaggs but I was afraid he would want to mess with for no more than what this guitar is worth. He got excited when he looked at it. It is one of the really old Swedes. I thought I was the only guy that really liked those. He is going to fix the binding for around $100. When I am done with the pickup an wiring work I will probably put $350 into it. Cheaper than buying a Gibson, PRS or a Heritage. I still might sell the Explorer to buy a Mesa Express 550.
